Free Shipping with Primitive Earth Beads

Dear Best Beads friends,

Are you familiar with our original retail store, Primitive Earth Beads? Wendy and Graham's late father, Ray Dykes, started the business back in the 90s, selling fimo beads and basic jewelry supplies. It expanded to include a variety of craft and beading supplies, including the largest collection of pewter charms available online. We added chain, findings, and eventually leather cord - which brought us here, to the wholesale side of our business. Since launching Best Beads wholesale, it has eclipsed PEBeads and become the main focus of our daily operations. 

After a lot of thought, we have decided to close this chapter on the PEBeads retail website. We truly appreciate all of the customers and friends we have made over the years. We know many of you have migrated from PEBeads and become registered wholesale customers, and we're so glad you have stuck with us over the years. One of the best parts about owning a small business is the relationships we have been able to form with our customers.

We want to offer you one last chance to grab anything you might need from Primitive Earth Beads. By placing an order of $25 or more on PEBeads in addition to your Best Beads order, you will qualify for free shipping for both! There are still some great deals left on quality products, so please take a look around and see what you can find.

Additionally, if you've ever wanted to order samples of chain or silk ribbons, you can take this opportunity to order single feet and single strands from PEBeads to ship with your Best Beads order. After PEBeads closes, we will no longer offer these small portions for sale.

Please note that the closure of will not affect Best Beads in any way, aside from giving us more time to spend on the website! We are looking forward to launching a new and improved Best Beads shopping experience in the coming months. Other than a fresh look, you won't notice any changes in our inventory or customer service :)

With gratitude,
Wendy, Graham, and the Best Beads family
