Where are your products from?

We pride ourselves on being able to offer one of the largest selections of beads and jewelry making supplies online. Our products come directly from many established names in the beading industry or their authorized distributors including Tierracast, Swarovski, Vintaj, Beadalon, The Beadsmith, Miyuki, Toho, and more. In certain instances, we also source the product directly from the factory in order to get you the best value.

Are your crystals leaded?

Beadaholique carries both Swarovski crystals and Czech crystals. Czech crystals are lead free, and in September 2012, Swarovski modified their manufacturing process to offer the same brilliant cuts and sparkle but with less lead. Since then, their crystals are over 99% lead free, containing 0.009% lead or less and allows them to be considered lead free in the industry. All Swarovski crystals available at Beadaholique are now this Advanced Crystal formula.

Do your findings contain nickel? 

For those sensitive to nickel, any base metal or plated components that are nickel free will have that stated in the product description. Stainless steel, sterling silver, and pure copper items are naturally nickel free.
