We are a family owed and operated business. Tim and I started Stateside Bead Supply in 2005, combining our 45 years of experience working in the jewelry industry to help designers, crafters and Do-It-Yourselfers make the jewelry of their dreams.
Tim has worked in the wholesale/retail bead industry for a long time (since 1988) and is incredibly knowledgable on all things beads. He is the creative force behind our website and production. We couldn't have this wonderfully user friendly site without him!
I have been designing jewelry since the early 90's, specializing in wire wrapping of gemstones with a recent interest in leather and the many beads from our store's collection. The design possibilities are endless, and we are having a great time creating new designs to inspire our fellow beaders.
We both have a background in photography, and this website has allowed us a fun and exciting opportunity to flex our creative muscles and collaborate on displaying photos that make your shopping experience more enjoyable.
We love reading all your comments and are grateful for all the wonderful relationships that we have built over the past 12 years. We strive to give you the highest quality in our customer service and merchandise, and hope that we can inspire you to design your own handmade jewelry and beaded crafts.
Thank you for making us a part of your creative world!
Tim and Elaine Anthonise
