Many years ago a good friend got me into beading and bead weaving and I have been hooked ever since. Over the years my bead and charm collection became so large that I realized I could make jewelry 24/7 and my collection would last me about 20 lifetimes. I finally decided that I should share some of my treasures with the world and so was born BusyBeeBeadSupplies. My name (Melissa) means honeybee in Greek so I thought the name was very fitting since I do feel like a busy bee at times. My days consist of ordering supplies, counting and packaging beads and charms (sometimes 1,000's a day), filling orders, taking photos, advertising, responding to emails, and several trips to the post office. I hope you find the special beads and charms you are looking for!
