"Beadalon is the only company in the industry that makes its own wire, strand, and cable for bead stringing, jewelry making, and crafts. Other brands simply label or respool wire purchased from third party factories. This manufacturing difference gives us the capability to design and produce exciting new wire products in-house. Beadalon's focus and our reputation are built on innovation, quality, and exclusivity. We work closely with our designers, our customers, our employees, and our vendors to develop products from the ground up. Every new product is designed to make it easy for you to create great jewelry."
"Starman, a family run leader in the jewelry component industry, proudly serves over 5,000 resellers around the globe providing uniqueness to each individual customer. We pride ourselves in achieving the highest quality beads, top notch service, and unbeatable prices. Focusing our efforts on Czech glass and Japanese seed beads allows us to carry a vast color and style variety.
Pressed glass and fire polish beads are the main focus of our factory production. We’ve been manufacturing beads since 1948 and have become world renowned for our high quality shapes and finishes. As one of the largest and oldest bead producers in the Czech Republic, we are able to supply large, consistent batch runs.
In 2005, we partnered with TOHO, the manufacturer of the highest quality seed beads in the world. Our strategic partnership has allowed us to bring a vast array of new and exciting seed bead colors to the world market. Seed beads have been used to complement Czech fire polished and pressed glass focal beads for generations. We aspire to create quality products for artisans using the latest advancements in technology and we look forward to meeting your beading needs."
