Dakota Stones Warehouse Sale

For a couple reasons really 

1:  They're our local wholesaler and I will do everything I possibly can to support them. 

2:  They really do have some unique and high quality stone beads.  You will find one type of stone in MANY cuts, drills and shapes.  They're a jewelry designers dream come true for making fabulously textural jewelry.

3:  I love their staff.  They have always been very warm and friendly to me and very supportive of my work. 

4:  They listen!!!!  I have asked for things and discussed trends in stone and jewelry with Jeff Elvin (Owner)  and he has always come through!

4:  They are 10 MINUTES from my home!

Do I work for them - The answer to that is no -  I am not on their payroll but I do help & support their efforts as they support mine.  A symbiotic relationship.  I believe in them and as a designer I will shout it from the mountain top because they deserve it!!!

Did you know that they are starting a Beading Ambassador program.  YES they are looking for talented jewelry designers who have a passion for stone like me!!!!

So I know some of you are wanting that CODE that Dakota Stones gave me just for my online friends.  

Here it is use 


at checkout for 4 hours only on April 27th from 10am - 2pm.  

This is a stand alone discount and not on top of other discounts.  Plus they are a wholesale only account so if you don't have an account set one up now before the sale.

Make sure to check out their new 5 piece pendant set and big hole beads!

So get busy and make some great jewelry with Dakota Stones!!!

You can find Kristin Oppold's work on Etsy under YaY! Jewelry.


  1. Thanks for the heads up! I wish that I would be home at that time, that is quite a deal. I love their stones and have used them in the past from purchases at the Bead & Button show. And, of course, I love what you do with them! I think you SHOULD work for them! You are an awesome ambassador. Enjoy the day! Erin
