Arts and crafts have turned into a near vocation over the last few years, and none more so than the often-revered art of jewellery making. Yes, if it’s a past time that can’t fail to bring some much needed joy to these freezing winter nights – cue one of our favourite new finds, Beads Direct, the site that brings an Aladdin’s cave of magpie-like beauty straight to your door.


Definitely centres around professional Swarovski Crystal beads, pearls and charms, but that’s just the tip of the proverbial iceberg. There’s a myriad of other goodies to tempt you; including semi-precious gemstones, sterling silver materials, hundreds of fun, bright seed beads as well as tools, and tons of useful information. Learn how to use all your essential jewellery findings and bring your designs together with bails, bead caps, ring bases and lots more. Quite simply what more could a jewellery magpie ask for?


The sheer variety of what is on offer behind this chic elegant domain is just unbelievably comprehensive. In addition the clean, clear well-designed site makes it a doddle to find exactly the type of niche beads you’re looking for…


Is an area of the site that certainly deserves a mention – with a whole host of great offers to add a bit of much needed sparkle to the daily grind.


Whether it’s by colour, shape, brand or new stock – the search facilities make it incredibly easy to navigate, whilst the interface is kept neat, white and tidy in order to put all the emphasis on the incredible range of stock. Keeping up with the times, you can also shop for beads on the go using Beads Direct's mobile website.


It can be a dark dreary world out there (especially in the depths of winter) but with Beads Direct a little magic can be winging its way to your front door. With a plethora of awards up its sleeve and glowing customer reviews, now this is a site that really delivers on all fronts.
