When the wholesale prices for beads and findings are based on buying several of one particular design - like all Bali bead caps - then pick a Bali bead, clasp, eyepin, and other finding design that's likely to be a staple in your jewelry making, such as sterling silver spacer beads, sterling silver clasps, or sterling silver bead caps.
Get the other stuff at other vendors, as there's a good chance you may not need bulk Balinese focal beads.
Don't be fooled by jewelry supply stores that offer wholesale prices, yet with prices that are actually comparable to those you can find elsewhere, retail. Shop around. And don't just choose one suppliers. Choose the best Bali silver bead supplies or jewelry supplies store or stores for each product type.
Lastly, don't buy more than you're likely to need in the next year or two. Especially if you're buying a new Bali bead style or a new gauge of jewelry wire that you've never used before - because unloading silver jewelry supplies is not as easy as finding them in bulk.
