Beading tools for jewellery making

Our beading tools are from a range of trusted brands, including BeadSmith and Soft Flex, and with options to suit most budgets. We have a great range of bead sorting trays in a variety of sizes to help you keep your beads organised, and to prevent them from rolling away! Whether you prefer to organise them by colour or size, sorting trays allow you to separate your beads in a way that works best for you. Some of these trays even come with funnelled ends to allow for easy pouring of beads, while others have lids to allow you to take your beading with you on the go.

Stringing boards are another basic tool that are often used by beading enthusiasts, they provide the perfect place to get your beads in order and ready to use for creating necklaces and bracelets. Bead reamers, which are used to enlarge and unclog bead holes, are a further useful addition to any beading toolkit. We stock a range of different sizes and multipack options. Beading needles are another essential. They’re used for creating earrings, bracelets and necklaces, and they make a beader’s life much easier, especially when threading particularly small beads or using a super fine wire.

Good pliers are a must for the accomplished beader. Choose from our selection of chain nose pliers and flat nose pliers, or browse our plier toolkits which contain several different types of pliers and side cutters in one. No beading tool kit would be complete without a wire cutter or thread snip to help you easily and safely snip wires, while loopers are also available to help create and trim eye pins in one quick and easy motion.

If it’s beading wire that you’re looking for, we have an amazing array of colours and thicknesses, including black onyx, antique brass, silver, copper, and white quartz. Take a look at our very useful range of bead stoppers: they grip the end of your thread to stop the beads falling off, saving you time and energy. If you don’t want to spend a long time threading fiddly beads, why not use a bead spinner to help you quickly and effectively make your jewellery items.
