Jet Beads' $25 Gift Certificate Giveaway for Jewelry Making Supplies | How to Buy Small Amounts at Wholesale Prices

By on Monday, June 06, 2016 88 Comments

It doesn't matter if you are a hobbyist or selling your own creations. Buying your supplies at competitive rates means you can buy more if you're on a limited budget. Sellers  need to make better profits by controlling costs. So Tuscon based Jet Beads is here to help.  What Jet Beads does is allow you to shop for less than 200 items from Fire Mountain Gems and still get their lowest discount.  This saves up to 40% off!


As I mentioned before, I came across Jet Beads on LinkedIn after one member griped about only being able to shop at FMG once a year. Someone then recommended Jet Beads. 

The man behind this useful system is jewelry designer, Jason Walz. His  Jet Beads ordering guide explains how it is done.  You share your wish list with Jet Beads which will then purchase on your behalf and send you your order by mail. Jason is able to do all this because he gets a 10-15 % discount below even the lowest FMG price as a high volume buyer under their platinum program.  This makes his time and effort worthwhile. His service is wildly popular as can be seen from his huge Facebook following. Jet Beads even has a rewards program


Jason Walz Design
Jason designs and sells original bracelets such as the one shown above at JWalz.  He also does Custom Mala bracelet designs and sells kits at Shade of the Bodhi Tree.


One reader asked me if I used Jet Beads myself.  The answer is no.  Only because I already belong to a private FMG buying group run by my friend, Bonnie. Our combined bulk purchasing power gets us 5-10% below the lowest rate.

FMG now offers a $5 flat rate shipping to Canadians, with no weight limit. This is great except for one thing -  FMG chooses the shipping method.  So sometimes orders come via Fedex which incurs additional charges and sometimes via USPS. So it might be worth your while to try Jet Beads if your orders are really small, light and will cost less than $5 to mail to you.

  5. So, I have heard of Jet Beads before but have been hesitant to try them out because what if I order the wrong color by mistake or my order just comes in wrong or damaged? See if I order myself I know, I don't get the massive discount, but I get the peace of mind that has kept me from using Jet Beads. This giveaway is a fantastic option for people like me to get a chance to try something new without having to make a commitment.
    Thank you for the giveaway Pearl and JetBeads.

  19. I've used Jet Beads and I know that Jason goes above and beyond 'customer service' to make people happy.
    Even shipping across the border has never been a problem - I've never been tagged for extra duty charges when purchasing through Jason.
    Fantastic customer service - and such an easy to get along with owner help make choosing to use Jet Beads a no brainer.

  43. I had forgotten about Jet Beads!!!
    Since I order from Fire Mountain Beads several times a year but do not reach the Platinum, I had intended to try the next time there was a great sale but I didn't have enough items to get the bigger discount.
    Thank you Pearl and Jet Beads for this giveaway and Great Reminder...

    2. He said : "Nope - I have always shipped to Canada. The only thing is that FMG has that $5 shipping to Canada that I can't compete with. Often my shipping cost to Canada eats up a lot of the savings. But, I always encourage non-US customers to submit an Order Request anyway just to see if it is worth it to order through me. If it is not then I let them know :)"

  68. We have been thinking of ordering from "Jet Beads", but can only order in small quantity. We're trying to start our own business in our basement, but were on a limited income. (Retired). We both Like Jet Bead Site. Oh, This would be great for us to Win! In our 48 yrs., of marriage we have never won "Anything"!!. Sincerely, Kat at crochetkath@gmail.com Making Jewelry out of anything.. is "So Relaxing For Us". Were still trying to come up with a name for our Site, once we make enough "Jewelry" Junk is our Jewelry! Anything is Possible.
