    One of the reasons you’re the best is definitely your customer service, so I’m really glad to see you won in this category this year! Congratulations! Aside from the service, your selection, prices, and fast shipping are all great. And the website is excellent, very user-friendly and clear. And then the blogs, tutorials, and galleries are really going above and beyond what you’d expect from a shop! I just love Beads Unlimited all round, really. :p

    Beads Unlimited is the best for buying beads from, They always deliver on time with good quality products, i have never had to return anything yet. Quick shipping means that if your using them for your business supplier that you can get your creations made on time and there for making your own company’s service better. I’ve tried many bead shops over the years but none of them compare in quality or in price. But the thing i love most about beads unlimited is there tutorials and idea’s for beading, Some times when i’m feeling low in inspiration i’l sieve threw the bead barmy blog and come away with some awesome idea’s to try and expand on. Over all a great site for both beginners and businesses.
    I’d say that i’d definitly recommend it to all my beading friends but i already have. they definitly deserve there craft business award of the year.

    Congratulations on the three wins! you guys totally deserve it. I think beads unlimited is fantastic and the best bead website around, because they are what got me started. I found the website on a search engine while looking for a new hobby, and kept putting things in my basket wishing i could buy them. For christmas my sister got me one of the starter kits and it grew from there! I love the free projects and have done a few of them and they look lovely (: The service is fantastic, i even recieved an email asking why i had left the website with items still in my basket and if theyd done anything to make me leave, shows they care about keeping their customers. Shipping was fast and paying was quick and easy, Overall a fantastic website and business (: I love you guys x x

Beads Unlimited is not just another business, an impersonal seller. There are real people behind it and it shows!!

  36. DESPINA says:

    Beyond the products, the prizes and even the amazing blog and ideas, there is this personal contact, the communication that’s evident to all. It shows that there is a human heart behind it all -well, several human hearts, to be accurate :) ) Keep showing how “online retail business” should be like <3 <3

  38. Carrie B says:

    You are the best because you listen to your customers. You constantly keep everyone updated through Bead Barmy and your Facebook page. ALL staff I have ever met or spoken to are friendly, knowledgable, and speak with passion about your products. Beads Unlimitedly Perfect! xxx

  39. Joan Newton says:

    I asked the instructor at a jewellery party (when I got hooked) where she got her tools from and she said you. She also warned me that your website would be a threat to my bank account. How right she was!! My stash is already huge but I can’t resist buying something new every time I visit. Your range is simply stunning and I can always get inspiration for new designs when I get “jeweller’s block”. I can’t believe the value you offer compared to other suppliers, I recently paid less than half the price I was asked for the same product in a local shop and got more than twice as much – you can’t beat that. Email enquiries are responded to promptly and always answer my questions. Congratluations on your well-earned awards.

  40. paula rickatson says:

  41. Beads Unlimited are by far the best bead shop I come across. The high quality and shear amount of different beads to choose from is just amazing. The epic sale section is just fantastic and unrivalled by any other bead shop out there. Top banana in my book :)

  42. Gill Lyons says:

    Beautiful beads

    Tempting offers.

  43. Gemma says:

    I have only recently discovered Beads Unlimited, and they have quickly become my new favourite supplier. Their easy to use website and fantastic range of products means I can quickly and simply order everything I need, and it’s great that they give discounts for bulk buys. I especially love the steampunk pendants! Will definitely be buying from you lots in the future!

  44. Faye Moffatt says:

    Beads Unlimited is my favourite jewellery making supply site. I always order from them, at least twice a month, simply because I trust them! They are always reliable and have never let me down with regards to postage, which has always been prompt, or quality. I don’t need to shop around as their range of stuff is so varied that I can always find what I need. A friend just bought my birthday presents from beads unlimited too, and when asking me what I would like, I told him I didn’t even need to look and I would like anything he bought me from their site haha! Thanks beads unlimited, you have saved me a lot of time and trouble, and helped me on my jewellery endeavours!

  45. Karen says:

    Congratulations to all of you on your hat trick of awards! You really deserve them!

    Excellent and large range of stock, quick delivery and friendly staff. I am lucky enough to live a short train journey from the shop and meet the helpful and friendy staff and see for myself the excellent range of beads and associated items, although I do avail myself of the postal service.

  52. Beads unlimited is the best






    Beads Unlimited not only sells the beads but also shows you what to do with the beads on Youtube. I am 17 years old and just starting out but I will be making beads unlimited my supplier from now on. The attention I get in school with the bracelets I made is making me and my bracelets a popular attraction.

    Thanks Beads Unlimited!!!
