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
