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.
