BeadCrafty is a UK online bead retailer that's just a few months old.  There aren't yet many items but the site will certainly grow.

Bradford based Steve and Sarah have 10 years eCommerce experience with their other site, which they are now bringing to their new venture.

Steve said, "The reason we decided to start the business is obviously the interest we share in making jewellery and crafts. After using other beading sites we thought we could offer a better customer service and faster dispatch."

It's no coincidence they have the Pandora-style bead on a truck logo because they offer same day dispatch.  Shipping is also free if you are based in the UK.  International shipping is only 1.95 in whichever currency you are using!
BeadCrafty has kindly sponsored this giveaway for a $85 or £50 gift certificate. That translates to a whole lot of beads and findings for one lucky winner!

They do stock basics like Swarovski crystals. Some of my favorite items from their site are shown here.

Extra entries if you become or are a blog subscriber or follower etc - even more entries if you do it for not just me but Lex's sites too.
