Stronger in Partnership

We are excited about the possibility of partnering with your store and community. BeadforLife believes in the power of collaboration to educate and engage others. We provide promotional materials to help connect your customers with our story and the meaning behind our beads and shea products. Additionally, partners receive new product updates, ordering support, and a BeadforLife hang tag with each piece purchased. We gladly refer customers to your store if they are in the area so they can hand select items. Our goal is to build long-term and mutually beneficial partnerships with each of our Wholesale Partners.

Thank you for considering joining our international grassroots movement of people working to Eradicate Poverty One Bead at a Time®.
