My partner makes some awesome jelwery with beads, stones, shells, etc... And she often sources the supplies from thrift stores by buying old necklaces, belts & bracelets and then deconstructs them for the individual bits.

Anybody know some suppliers that might have great things in bulk? I bought her some great stuff from sellers on etsy, but wondering if there are any other great places to look.

P.S. She tends to have color themes in her creations, so being able to search a supplier by color would be fantastic.

look on Etsy
On Etsy.com you can find all sorts of jewelry supply items as well as vintage items. Even vintage jewelry in bulk (i mean sometimes by the LBS!)
Hey,
we are starting a new company for craft supplies, beads and gems. We are super interested in the newest trends of beads and try to stay ahead of curve. We try to give our customers the best deals on all supplies. In the first month of business we have made our mark on etsy.com selling tons of pearls, agate, Fimo, Amethyst and turquoise. Our latest top seller has been turquoise skulls, and we pride ourselves on having the best quality and prices on the internet. We deal directly with the factories and pass the saving along to you. Our specialty is Oriental and Asian supplies and our knowledge and ‘guangxi’ in this area is unsurpassed.
Give us a chance and see what we can do for you.
Nirvana Supplies, our aim is making buying craft supplies just heavenly.
Just adding my 2 cents:
My_2_Cents
I have over $3,000 in beads at home, maybe $4,000 with the price of silver the way it is. The best way to buy alot of beads for good prices is to go to a gem faire, or wholesale fair open to the public. I used Firemountain gems in the early years until I found out there are less expensive suppliers and better quality. Not that Firemountain is bad place. My favorite personal site is a little store out of Seattle Washington. Fusionbeads rocks!
I sometimes will look for older jewelry in my stash, take apart and rework into somthing new.
I like artbeads.com and fusion beads, for the free shipping. Etsy sellers have low priced shipping, and Etsy has tons of different suppliers and great variety. Also try eBay for beads, and for old jewelry sold in lots.
yeah artbeads is good...
I've used all the suppliers mentioned above, and have like them all. I'd also like to give a shout out to Beadaholique.com (great stuff, good prices, and free shipping over $25), and beadedimpressions.com (good products, and good customer service)
Thanks for the tip! I'm always looking for new suppliers.

They don't deliver outside the UK. :'(
Still, I'll check out their color selection tool!
thanks for the tips!!!

Since Aug 2018, I can longer upload or publish templates I create using Seamless Studio. In Seamless Studio, I'll create a template, and click on "Upload to Colourlovers," my browser opens a new tab to CL but it just goes to a blank Seamless Lite page, and I am not logged in on that page. This happens whether I am already signed in to CL or not.

When I used to "Upload to Colourlovers," a CL would open on the browser saying something like "we have your template but you need to sign in." I would sign in, and my template would be ready to publish.

Hello community! Could you let us know if you're still experiencing the issues with Recaptcha and the patterns? Please write to editor@colourlovers.com
It's easier for us to keep track of what needs to be fixed this way. Thanks! :)

Thank you so much!! And I fixed the login issue today-it was a stupid settings issue on my part, not a site bug.
