Wholesale Glass Beads & Supplies since 1970

Crazy Crow Trading Post offers an extenstive selection of wholesale glass beads!

In addition to the most popular Czech wholesale glass beads, Crazy Crow offers French, pony, bugle, German, Italian and “White Heart” wholesale glass beads. In 2001, we acquired Bovis Bead Company and became the North American distributor for the Salvadori Company of Lyon, France, the last surviving French glass bead manufacturer. Unfortunately, the business closed and the beads are no longer made, but we purchased most of their remaining inventory and still have very good stock on most colors and sizes. These fine quality wholesale glass beads are colorfast and will not fade, and they feature a large hole in even the smallest bead.

French “White Heart” Beads

We carry exact reproductions of the world famous Venetian, “Cornaline d’Allepo” beads, known as “White Heart Beads”, traded virtually all over the world. From their birth in the 16th century until now, they have fascinated bead collectors and craftsmen alike. Crazy Crow Trading Post is proud to offer these French made wholesale glass beads in the same excellent quality and colors as their predecessors.

Wholesale Beads of Glass, Metal, Crystal & Plastic

We offer wholesale beads of different materials to suit a variety of customer uses and budgets. Faceted necklace beads are offered in different shapes and sizes, and in crystal, firepolish, and imitation (plastic) firepolish. The popular “Crow” bead is likewise available in glass and plastic, numerous colors, and even countries of origin.

Basic Bottom Line: At Crazy Crow, we know wholesale beads!

We don’t just wholesale beads because they are an item to add to an inventory checklist. We know beads, their historical and contemporary uses, and enjoy them. We have published a number of books on the topic, and manufacture our own line of beading looms.

We value our dealer relationships!

We only sell to qualified, bonified dealers. We protect our dealer relationship with minimum initial orders, and verification of actual business activity. We aren’t trying to be nosy, we simply want to insure that we are not competing against our dealer network in an unfair manner.
