About Us

Bead Me A Story is a unique resource for jewelry making, craft supplies, & hobbyists.

EPDM Rubber O-rings

We carry a line of EPDM Rubber O-rings that are custom manufactured.  The colors of our O-rings have been meticulously chosen and it has taken more than 10 years to bring you the selection of colors and sizes that are available today.  Our O-rings are available for purchase in small retail packages as well as for larger wholesale purchases.  EPDM Rubber O-rings are often used for Chainmaille, Leather Jewelry Making and Finger Board Crafting.

These are also used as stitch markers for Knitting & Crochet and can also be used for Cord Jewelry & Macrame.  EPDM O-rings were developed to form a waterproof seal.  They can be used with LED lights to seal between the bulb and hardware.  These have also been used for body piercings that often require a stopper to hold jewelry items in place.  O-rings are also used with Tattoo equipmentpaint guns, bicycle, plumbing, automobile & Industrial parts.  Even scientists in Colleges & Universities have used our O-rings to mark wires, gas tanks and tubes with colors.  Most recently, custom knife enthusiasts (TRM, Chris Reeve & Vero Engineering) are using the O-rings as replacement parts to cushion the lug against the handle of the knife and for Fulcrum Bit Holders.

Rhinestones & Sew-On Components

Craftspeople and Jewelry Artists love bling.  We specialize in hard to find items. Our carefully curated collection of glass & crystal rhinestone components will allow you to finish so many projects that you found but couldn’t locate the components for.  We carry both Rose Montee Beads & Chaton Montee Beads as well as Pointed Back Rhinestones.  We are always striving to find more colors and more shapes for you to choose from.

Jump Rings

Most of our jump rings are Anodized Aluminum.  The anodizing process prevents tarnishing and keeps items looking new for years.


Little information exists to help craftspeople use glass beads with mediums other than small beading string.  As we specialize in Chainmaille projects, we tend to carry those beads that work best on jump rings and larger stringing materials such as leather, cording & waxed threads.  This line is custom curated to bring you hard to find finishes while supplies last.

Charms, Findings & Tools

You never know what you will find.  We try to carry items that will help you tell your story.  Our tools are chosen based on years of experience teaching and figuring out which tools work best in the hands of beginner students.

Kits & Tutorials

Our kits include step by step photo and written instructions.  Often, instruction may be reinforced with a video tutorial to walk you through a project each step of the way.  We want everyone who buys a kit from us to be able to succeed.  We provide information with our projects to help you match your skill level to a kit that will be appropriate for you.


In person classes are available at select stores and events.  For those who are not able to attend events, check out our YouTube channel for FREE tutorials or select a kit that includes video instruction.
