I am a brand new member and I really appreciate the large amount of interesting learning material and articles available to members!
I have a question:
I would like to purchase bulk strands of semi precious beads directly from manufacturing companies. I am looking for beads such as: Amethyst, Pearls, Jasper, Lapis Lazuli, Chrysocolla, Quartz, Turquoise, Garnet and Larimar, etc. and other semi precious beads as well.
I would like to find more than one reputable Bead manufacturing company,so that I have a few choices if a company suddenly has a flood ( just happened ) and cannot finish making my order.
It would also be very helpful to find information that shows the appropriate selling price of semi precious beads to both retail customers and customers willing to purchase in larger quantities or bulk. I also understand that there are different prices for different grades; A, AA and AAA.
Any information would be very helpful and appreciated–
Thank You !
