Stateside Bead Supply is a family owned and operated business. Tim and Elaine started this online jewelry supply store in 2005, combining their 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 knowledgeable 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!
Elaine has been designing jewelry since the early 1990's, specializing in wire wrapping of gemstones with a recent interest in leather and the many beads from the store's collection. The design possibilities are endless, and they are having a great time creating new designs to inspire fellow designers.
They both have a background in photography, and this website has allowed them a fun and exciting opportunity to flex their creative muscles and collaborate on displaying photos that make the shopping experience more enjoyable.
Tim and Elaine love being out in nature. Daily hikes and Elaine's background in biology has helped bring nature's wonderful colors to everything they place on the website and the YouTube jewelry making tutorials they started creating in 2017.
"We love reading all your comments and are grateful for all the wonderful relationships that we have built over the past 15 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
