Hi! I'm Nicola:
- owner and founder of ChromaBeads
- lover of cats (I have 3), coffee (I drinks lots), colour and crafting
I set the business up in 2012 to give UK crafters access to wide choices of colours in all their favourite types of beads, without having to buy huge quantities of stuff in order to justify the high shipping costs and taxes you have to pay when buying from overseas suppliers. And without the long wait for it to arrive.
It all started from me buying those large quantities for myself for making jewellery, and then selling the excess I didn't use on ebay. OK, so maybe not ALL of the excess - every crafter has a stash, right??!!
The first products were seed beads, and our range of those has grown and grown and grown! But now we also stock a range of other beads and crafting supplies - always with the goal of providing a wide range of colours to suit whatever project you are working on.
Thanks to our wonderful customers like you, the business has also grown. It's no longer just me - I have a small but mighty team to help me to serve up the craft products you want, quickly and at great prices.
We always welcome suggestions of what products you'd like to see - whether different types of beads, different sizes, shapes or colours. So please feel free to get in touch and let us know.
And we also LOVE to see what you make with the products you buy from us, so please do send us photos.
