Have you drooled over the discounted prices over on Fire Mountain Gems and wish you could buy enough so you qualify? Not everyone needs to or can afford to purchase 200 items to get the lowest price.  But there are ways to get round this.  I for one belong to a buying group of friends so we do get those prices.  But believe me, it is a lot of work doing group buys especially for my friend Bonnie who does all the purchasing and sorting out.   Waiting for a group buy is also a tad inconvenient if you have run out of a critical item.

Consider Jason Walz's service, Jet Beads as another alternative.  Some of you may remember his previous giveaway last year.  He too has handmade jewelry businesses as I mentioned then - he makes custom bracelets like the one shown below.

As a result of his bulk buying, he has become a 4 Star Platinum partner which means he has earned a hefty 10% discount below even the lowest discounted price on FMG.  So what he offers to do through Jet Beads is to help others get the best price from FMG by letting him process your orders for you.

You can thus purchase small amounts through his site and pay only the lowest price and shipping. Jason is compensated for his efforts because he claims the 4 Star Platinum partner discount. His Facebook page is standing at 44,000 + fans so clearly, many people appreciate his service.

You can see his workshop pictures on how he processes the orders in my past post.  The Jet Beads' site has the instructions and a guide.

Canadian FMG buyers will have to do the calculations to figure out if a particular order is worth your while to use Jet Beads as you will have to pay the shipping from Jet Beads to you. That's because FMG now offer a rockbottom $5 shipping level for Canadians no matter how much you buy.

One lucky winner of this giveaway will win $25 worth of jewelry supplies of your choice from Fire Mountain Gems and get a firsthand experience of Jet Beads' service.
