Dream delivers us to dream, and there is no end to illusion. Life is like a train of moods like a string of beads, and, as we pass through them, they prove to be many-colored lenses which paint the world their own hue. . . .--Ralph Waldo Emerson
We are a bead company. More specifically we are importers and wholesale distributors of beads, findings and jewelry-making supplies. We got our start in 1990 importing a few styles of glass beads from the Czech Republic (then known as Czechoslovakia). Czech glass beads continue to be our passion and the largest share of our inventory. We are also designers of our own beads and collaborate with other innovators to bring their designs to the market. Thanks to our loyal customers, industry friends, suppliers and - last but not least - our dedicated, hard-working crew, we have become a major wholesale supplier of beads and beading supplies to jewelry manufacturers, bead shops, craft stores, and online resellers.
We partner with other importers and manufacturers to offer their products at wholesale prices. Our customers benefit by being able to purchase all of their supplies from one source and save on shipping. We ship orders large and small to customers the world over from our Paterson, NJ warehouse. Feel free to contact us with any questions or comments. We are here to serve you.

While selling the then very popular "Y" necklace made with Czech glass beads, we discovered that customers were taking the necklaces apart and reassembling them to make their own designs. We decided to offer the loose beads instead. Eventually, like all trends, the Y necklace trend went away, but the sales of loose beads continued to grow month by month, necessitating an ever expanding office and warehouse space in our 5th Avenue, NYC building which was ill-suited for warehousing and distribution of beads. Nevertheless, we stayed at this location for another 10 years in a maze-like network of offices repurposed for storage.
