Bead It opened its website doors for business in 2004. Since then we have been beading suppliers to thousands of customers all over New Zealand through our online bead shop, at Craft Fairs and on TradeMe. Our online bead store caters to people who make beaded jewellery such as bracelets, earrings and necklaces as a hobby at home and also to people who sell at local craft fairs and craft markets.

There are hundreds of books about bead jewellery and thousands of videos on YouTube which will show a beginner the simple steps in making a unique pair of beaded earrings or a beaded bracelet. Our website has thousands of beads for sale and we also supply beading findings (wires, clasps etc) so that you can put it all together. If you are looking for ‘beads for sale’ – this is the place.

We specialise in:

  • coloured glass beads
  • venetian beads
  • lampwork beads
  • seed beads
  • hematite beads
  • crystal beads
  • gemstone beads
  • flower beads
  • bugle beads
  • crimp beads
  • rose beads

We have upgraded the shopping cart system so that it is much easier for you to select beading products and edit the number required or remove items from within the cart system.

We send everything out by CourierPost and the charge is $6.  If you purchase $75 or more courier is free.  We courier within 48 hours of receiving payment (unless it’s the weekend) although we try to get orders out the same day payment is received.

There are 2 methods of payment

  1. By Paypal.  If you have a Paypal account you will use that by logging in to your account as usual but if you don’t have a Paypal account you may pay by Credit Card using the “I don’t have a PayPal account” link on the left of the Paypal payment page.  The Bead It website will send you to the Paypal page at the end of the shopping process.
  2. By direct credit to our bank account.  The details of our account will be emailed to you on completion of the Shopping Cart process. Please note that if you are paying over the weekend we won’t see your payment until Tuesday.  If you also bank with BNZ, the payments are instant and depending on when we check our account it is possible we can send your beads the same day.

We bend over backwards to provide superior customer service and quick delivery, please contact us if there are any problems with your order.

If you do not receive an email from us please check your junk folder first and then Contact Us  .  There is an enquiry link on every page and we’re happy to answer questions.  There is also a link to a Contact Us page at the bottom.

We do not post overseas – we are New Zealand only.

We are a home based business and do not have a shop premises for you to visit – sorry.
