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.
