New Press Releases
(Grants Pass, Oregon)--Fire Mountain Gems and Beads®, America's Favorite Beading and Jewelry Supply Company®, is expanding their promotional-quality gemstone bead line to include gemstone pebbles sized small and medium--now available in bulk 10-strand packages for super savings.
Bulk packages of promo-quality gemstone pebbles are a great value for manufacturers and resellers. Traditionally, promo-quality beads have been used by jewelry manufacturers, particularly those needing reduced price points. Now, we are finding that they are requested by bead store owners and other retail bead outlets. These stores have discovered that many of their customers take advantage of commercial grade gemstones due to the significant price savings.
Promotional quality, also known as ''commercial'' or ''C'' grade beads have occasional flat spots and mild irregularities in the drilling. You will find that 90-95% of the pebble beads on each 16-inch strand will work in any application. Gemstone pebbles are machine-cut and tumbled, creating a smooth finish.
