Welcome to your friendly craft shop in Brighouse – online

We sell a range of craft materials including 100% wool felt fabric, 100% wool felt balls, sterling silver beads, wood beads, Japanese Origami papers, natural freshwater pearl beads and more – but our reputation as a leading UK craft supplier is built mainly on our beautiful collection of semi precious gemstone beads.

The UK’s favourite semi precious gemstone beads supplier

"What's not to like about these natural beautiful beads - they look better than the photos! Great communication and delivery. You always know what you'll get with this seller - quality and a great service. My go to seller!"

While semi precious gemstones products are mainly manufactured in four countries around the world, we bring the best beads and stones to Yorkshire – where we handpick high quality cut, colour, clarity and carat to give you a unique collection for your craft projects.

As the country’s leading gemstone beads seller, we source high quality beads, pebbles and natural stones from Thailand, India, Sri Lanka and China before quality checking and selling them to craft material businesses and arty individuals all over the UK.

Bringing gemstones of the world to Yorkshire since 2006

At Oriental Direct Craft Supplies, we keep our prices low by cutting out the middle man. We deal directly with specially selected gemstone suppliers in the Far East which means our trade prices here in the UK are the most competitive available. And because our owner’s proud family heritage lies in that part of the world, we’re able to use our ties to the Orient and venture off the beaten track to find factories that specialise in stones other craft suppliers simply won’t have access to.

As a leading gemstone beads supplier we’ve been able to offer an unrivalled range of gemstones in Brighouse and beyond for over 15 years.

Our close partnerships with so many gemstone suppliers overseas also allow us to negotiate low shipping costs, which we’re able to pass on to both our wholesale and retail customers.
