As a jewelry maker it can be hard to get inspired. You can look through magazines, in store windows, online and through your personal jewelry box for ideas. Sometimes however, it is best to simply start creating and see what happens. That is why, when it comes to wholesale jewelry supplies, a mixed stand of beads can give the inspirational boost you need.
When you get a wide variety of beads you can experiment, get exposed to materials you would have otherwise not known about, and have plenty left over for future projects. Crystal beads come in so many varieties it’s impossible to see them all. Mixed bead strands offer a good cross section of what is out there and can inform you on future purchases.
If you have some ideas in mind for a collection you should start by getting some mixed bead strands. That way you can try out your ideas before committing to a large order of beads. Remember that any bead you find on a mixed strand you can order in bulk. Sometimes simply having all those shiny beads at your disposal can inspire you. Challenge yourself by using materials you normally don’t work with and see if you end up with something you like.
