I would highly recommend the Southampton bead shop. I needed delica beads in two different sizes to compliment these pearls. They sent me photos to help me choose the colour combinations. Excellent customer service and excellent choice of beads

Christmas wreath kit
Monday, 13 June 2022  |  Olga

I recently bought the Christmas Wreath Kit at your Fair in Haydock. I bought it for my daughter as she loves to 'fiddle', she thoroughly enjoyed making it so I have ordered another three kits from you online. I think they are very good value for money and fun to make.

Good quality at a fair price together with excellent service from Southampton Bead Shop
Tuesday, 7 June 2022  |  June

Southampton Bead shop was one of the few places I found to have stocks of white pearl beads in a wide range of sizes. I found these beads to be of good quality at a fair price. There were a couple of blemishes on some but nothing untoward.

The service from this store is excellent, ordered one day and arrived the next; ideal for impatient crafters.

It is such a nice idea to sell them in smaller quantities which must make them more affordable for some but I wish they would also offer them in larger quantities at a slightly reduced price for those making bigger projects.
