well, some months later, and they still have the same few bead items in stock (if one is lucky) big drum roll for the "new" website, but nothing to put on it? Glass beads has not been re-stocked for over a year,(if they have they sure not on the website) click on most bead categories, and you get "no stock' . Bleh!!!!!!!!!!!

6 months later and nothing has changed. all they offer is some jewelry making findings,many been out of stock for more than a year but not replaced. And for the most part they keep listing high end jewelry items,semi precious stone beads,, and that is about it. Nothing for the entrepreneur looking for cost effective beads to make and sell jewelry items . No wonder staff had to be retrenched a couple times.

Have not seen any new glass beads on their website for years, apart from glass pearls and some high priced fancy beads..Where are the glass beads like a few years ago? They say all new uploads to the website can checked on their facebook page..Not everyone has or wants a facebook page. Also many times when something is on the website, and ordered online from them, so many times the invoice comes back "out of stock" Website is not kept up to date, which is annoying and time wasting, especially when ordering an urgent order.

We used to go into the shop and buy and also do online orders,as we are a group making jewellery to sell, to make extra income, so needed these days. However, Silver Hills Gems, has not had much to get excited about for the budget beader as they used to have in the past. For the past few years, mainly gemstones and high end jewellery items have been on the website, some glass beads, but what is on offer are small sizes, it is a great place to shop if one has a business selling the gemstones, rocks and expensive jewellery, but for the entrepreneur, trying to boost their income,it is not a place to go to..not the way it used to be..Findings are few, many things have been out of stock for a few years, and not replaced,It is such a pity that South Africa has to be at the bottom of the line when it comes to online buying power. Whenever stock has been bought and arrived, all we see are expensive gemstones, expensive jewellery items and rocks. No more pretty normal jewellery glass beads like before Not many beaders can afford those items, and even if they could, many would have a problem selling their creations, because of the mark up in price. Sad!!!

We are surprised that this place is still doing business, as there are no new stocks of note, despite their fanfare way of advertising "New shipment arrived" yet the "shipment items are never seen on the website, years, since any glass bead re-stocking has been done, let alone anything new put on the website, online orders are invoiced with at least 70% of the order "out of stock" they take old stock list it as "new stock" to give the impression they have received (or ordered) anything. Also their prices are in many cases 100% higher than anywhere else, and that can be proved.. just check for yourself. Beads direct is definitely not the company it used to be a few short years ago.

This place was on the ball a few years ago, used to do frequent online orders..Since under new management, the place has gone down the online shop as promised years ago. A real dead loss.
