    The Fine Print

    *Almost everything. Some select items excluded. (see below)

    The exceptions are:

    • No discounts on class fees  
    • No discount on gift certificates. 
    • No discounts on Studio time/lampwork cards, lampwork tools, glass and lampwork supplies.  
    • No discounts on special order merchandise, or special bulk orders.  
    • Some items ARE excluded from this sale. Some metal clay items, some big tools, and previously discounted items, and a few other items. You will be able to see online if an item is discounted. Remember – you always get the best possible discount – so if something has been discounted more than the sale discount – you will get the greater of the two possible deals.

    Things tend to get a little-bit crazy around here during a sale, so we have a few rules to make it go more smoothly.

    • The discount is NOT retroactive and does not apply to previously purchased merchandise.  
    • No special orders or special bulk orders will be accepted at the sale prices. 
    • No Rain Cheques. No backorders. When it’s gone, it’s gone. The early bird gets the beads. Online orders will be picked in the order in which we receive them.  
    • Sale ends Midnight, Wednesday , November 13 (Toronto time) (Well – in-store it ends at closing time – because we won’t make the staff stay until midnight.). If you haven’t checked out by then – the items in your shopping cart will revert to regular prices. Poof! (And we can’t change that – sorry.)  
    • If you are placing a phone or fax order, please ensure that you have the sku/product numbers ready, as well as the description. Same goes for email orders – as we’d prefer to not have our order-picking staff have nervous breakdowns. They hide in the kitchen and eat fun-size chocolate bars.
    • We will be VERY busy during the sale. Having this information ready when processing your order, will help us get your order out the door in a reasonable time frame.

    We do anticipate that shipping will most likely be delayed by a day or two from our usual timeframe.

    So click on a link and go crazy!

    Happy Shopping!

Our Class News

  • Planning for 2020

    As we are heading into a brand new year, now is the time to plan new ideas, techniques and jewellery-making applications. Being in a large city like Toronto, we are fortunate to be able to draw on a wide variety of jewellery-making artists who are eager to share their expertise with you.

    As you know, we offer seed beading, mixed media, chainmaille, wirework, metal clay, metalwork and lampworking. We have 18 local instructors who regularly schedule classes at BeadFX and several who will accommodate private classes.

    Is there something you would like to learn that we haven’t offered? Share your ideas with us!

    Email me, Pamela Kearns, at with your ideas, suggestions and thoughts. Be as specific as you want – such as ‘how about more classes using wire to wrap stones’, or ‘I’d like to learn bead crochet’ – that will help me in my search for ideal classes.

    Note that we can’t teach other designer’s projects (copyright infringement and all that), so we are looking for techniques you want to learn.

    Our instructors are sending me their January and February projects now and you’ll soon see the classes on-line. Mark your calendars now to attend Meet the Teachers on Saturday, January 4 so you can see for yourself the exciting learning opportunities.

    2019 isn’t finished yet and we have more new classes coming in November and December – so stay tuned!

Our Latest Inspiration

  • InspirationFX: Falling Leaves

    Get your creative juices flowing

    Falling Leaves

    by: Rosemary Beasley

    When I saw the two strands of the “freeform” tiger iron, I was inspired by their “leafy” shape to make a necklace inspired by the fall season. The tiger iron is streaked with slate, rust and little hits of mustard yellow making me think of November skies and falling leaves. The glass leaves and 2mm pearls add a lightness contrasting with the darkness of the tiger iron.
