The Bead Factory is on a street lined with many other jewelry supply stores, but this one in particular I found on yelp and it had some pretty good reviews. I’ve always been happy with their selection and prices so I just keep going back, but one of these days I plan to browse the competition to see what else I can find. For now though this place works just fine for me.
The Bead Factory has a pretty basic website that you can order from found here, or if you live locally and would like to visit, they can be found at: 810 S. Maple Ave. Los Angeles, CA 90014 – 213.624.2121. There’s parking meters that take credit card or coin right on Maple, or you can park at one of the nearby lots and the rates are usually between $5-$10.
