emma ralph

Welcome to the new look EJR Beads online store, for all your beady and polymer clay needs. We've updated the site a little to make it more mobile-friendly - but you'll still find the same great value products and first class customer service!

Hi - I'm Emma Ralph (along with Daisy the pug). I started EJR Beads in 2004 to sell my handmade art beads and jewellery. Before long, I had added other select bead and craft products, including a wide range of polymer clay supplies, vintage beads & buttons and much more. The result is the type of online store I'd like to visit - with one-of-a-kind supplies, all wrapped up with great customer service, naturally!

Please check back often. I frequently add new bits and bobs. Better still, join my mailing list! You'll get advanced warning on new beads, product news and special offers. Visit my main EJR Beads website, for free jewellery making and claying tutorials.

Niobium & Titanium Findings

We've extended our range of Niobium and Titanium findings to include two great new colours - Ice Blue and Yellow. If you make jewellery to sell, especially using statement art beads, these findings are what you've been waiting for. Our Niobium and Titanium findings never tarnish, are great quality and are truly hypo-allergenic.
We have earwires in natural colours to team with silver and copper beads and findings, or brightly anodized findings in a range of vivid colours - perfect for teaming with brightly coloured polymer or glass beads. We've even got anodized niobium wire so you can make your own findings!

You can buy our colourful niobium findings by the pair or in kits with all the colours. We also stock a range of 5 pair packs in one colour options or a variety of themed colour collections. So there will be a kit to suit you, whatever your budget and whatever jewellery you are creating.
