Fine Jewelry, Diamonds, Colored Gemstones and More (http://www.jewelrytelevision.com/) jtv supplies
Wholesale Beads and Jewelry Making Supplies - Fire Mountain Gems and Beads (http://www.firemountaingems.com/) fire mountain gems
Glossary A-M (http://www.bolekscrafts.com/glossary_A_M.htm) boleks crafts - beading stuff

We've gotten stuff from all these and not had any problems
Hope that helps

This is a good one too.

Fusion Beads is a good site too. FusionBeads.com - Fusion Beads, bead, beading, sterling, seed beads, charm, swarovski, lampwork, glass, jewelry, pearls (http://www.fusionbeads.com)

If it's for profit, do NOT buy retail. Also, Fire Mountain has the worst quality beads that are overpriced. I've been making jewelry for a long time now and have always bought wholesale only. Artbeads is also way overpriced although their quality is better. It just blows my mind whenever I go to their website and look at their pricing.

Shoot me a PM with what exactly you are wanting to make and I will be able to help you a little bit more and guide you in the right direction; if you want my help, that is.

Over the years, I've managed to make a list of the good suppliers that have good pricing on precious metals and stones as well as crystals and all the components needed.

You will love making jewelry. It is my favorite pastime and very lucrative to boot!
