Spoilt Rotten Beads

Sterling Silver HeadpinsOver the past year I have spent lots and lots of money on sterling silver findings at one particular online shop. However, when I urgently needed one packet of headpins last week they refused to send them Special Delivery even though I was offering to pay extra. Nice.

I thought 'Pants to you, then!' and I went off on a Google-a-thon to find somewhere else that could help me with my silver emergency.

I eventually stumbled upon Spoilt Rotten Beads and they had exactly what I was after along with a next day delivery service. Perfect! I placed my order and the following day it arrived.

Now, sterling silver Cupcake bead findings aside, I don't buy many beads. I purchase the occasional few Swarovskis here or the odd clasp or earring wires there but I know that in future Spoilt Rotten Beads will be my first port of call. Plus, they have a shop in Ely which will only be a short journey away when I move to Cambridge. Bonus!

So if you're a jewellery maker and you haven't heard of Spoilt Rotten Beads do pay them a visit. They have a huge selection of findings, beads, stringing materials and tools and they also offer jewellery making classes, workshops and parties too.

It's annoying when you cannot get good service! I've often had that in the past. I think I've used Spoilt Rotten in the past and have good service.

Ely is such a beautiful place - I attended a wedding in the cathderal a few years ago.

I've never heard of them but am off to have a look now. My current sterling supplier keeps ringing to ask if they can help me buy something, despite it being a quiet time of year, my having bought a fortune's worth before Christmas, and me not being able to work for a month or so due to injury. Then they threatened to cancel my wholesale account. Perhaps the time has come to tell then 'go ahead, make my day' which would be a shame as I am loyal.

Spoilt Rotten are fabulous, always so helpful and fast with their deliveries and they have some pretty lovely beads to boot! Princess Beads are great too, though unfortunately closing down I think soon, and Nottingham Beads also do a next day delivery service and have a very cute beadshop!

Ely reminds me of school trips to the Cathedral, it seemed like we went there every year!

It's always refreshing to hear about good service and our blogs are a great way to spread the word and also name and shame those that aren't up to scratch.

I always use Spoilt Rotten Beads. I have found their service to be first class and they always have what I need. I've always received my order very quickly.
