Bead and Jewelry Supply Shopping (Shhhh!)

Don't anyone tell my husband - but I'm going to sneak out and do some bead and jewelry supply shopping today.  I need some sterling silver chain (I never have the right size on hand!),  gold filled leverbacks,  10 mm coin beads and some small sterling silver rounds (2-4mm).  That's about $50 worth of supplies and I will spend  at least another $150 on impulse buys.  No wonder the owners at Silver Sky International love me!  They just moved to a new store and I guess I need to check out their new digs.  I hope their prices don't go up now that they are in the 'high rent district' on Ventura Blvd. in Sherman Oaks.  Their website is new too.  Must have come with the acquisition of the new store location (I believe they bought out an existing bead store).

I'll post my goodies this weekend!  Oh darn - I think I also need wire some sterling wire - 16g and 18g soft.  I just spent all my money!

  1. Hi Lisa, We've just moved to LA and I'm learning new places but not yet the bead shops. Does this place have beads or just silver stuff? We were at a movie at that exact location yesterday! Thanks.

  2. They have everything! High end gemstones, middle and basics - plus sterling, gold filled and base metals, stringing materials, crystals - you name it! One of the few places you can buy wire by the ounce, chain by the foot, etc. One of my favorite places to shop - and the owners are very nice.

  4. So glad you found their new store. It's nice, isn't it? I've talked to the owners about teaching some classes there starting in the fall. I'm hoping it works out!!
