I would like to say how impressed I am from the customer support side of Halstead. You put the human element into your business and it means a lot to me as a customer. Your selection of products are exactly what I was looking for and more! I found your online store while desperately searching for 3mm bezels and larger gauge silver wire for my new product line. I was delightfully surprised at the selection and quality of goods you offer. The quality exceeded my expectations when I opened the box and saw first hand that I had made the right choice. Based on every aspect of my customer experience, Halstead has now become my primary source for my business' jewelry supply needs! Well done, Halstead! Very well done!
