The DIY Beads shop: DO IT YOURSELF!


My still unpacked DIY Beads shop stash

The DIY Beads shop is one of the special bead shops I frequent in Villalobos St. Quiapo. I like their selection of clasps and earth stones in particular.


ear hoops, ring findings, ring bases, adjustable ring findings for P20 per pack at DIY shop


Their clasps, spacers, ear chandeliers have very vintage and ornate designs comparable to the clasps often featured in BeadStyle Magazine. You may purchase items such as the clasps in P20-P50 packets. They often come in 5-10 pcs.



For their earth and semi-precious stones, they have a Buy 3-Get 1 free promo, so you can get 4 stems for P300. Regardless of the size, they have really small translucent stones to the really large ones in tangerine - all at the same price of P100 per stem.

They also have one of the best "Reds" section which is located near the cash register, where you can find all beads and stems in the color RED.

If you're looking for special elements and charms, this is the place to go. They have items you would not find in the other stores in Villalobos.

Here's a guide from my previous post on How to Get to Villalobos Street

  10. Hi! Just stumbled across your blog. I have the same question as above regarding where I can buy those metal studs? The one for clothes or for leather accents? Preferably somewhere I can purchase it online. I dropped by at our local Gaisano (textile/crafts dept.), figuring that they might have it, but when I mentioned studs, all of the salesladies just gave me a blank look. They had no idea what a stud was and it was so frustrating to have to explain to them.

    Please let me know if you have any idea where I can buy these in packs. Thanks!
