I am new to the beading world and have been considering the idea of making jewelry to sell. I have shopped a few craft stores and managed to piece together a necklace from about 3 different stores. With gas prices, who needs that. I found this site and placed a small order just to see the quality of the beads, and just how satisfied I would be with online ordering. I have to say, I am completely thrilled with my decision with only one regret, it should have been a large order. The great thing is the low flat rate shipping because I know I will be ordering time and time again from Dollar Bead. Thanks to the low prices and fast shipping, I will be starting to make my jewelry and then put it out there to sell. Very Happy Customer Indeed!!
