I used to make away chains and stuff but am running out of sources for good material like metal beads, clasps and stuff. Where do most people source these things from?

I put together native American crafts and use beads in them. I find most of my beads in crafts shops like Michael's, AC Moore, Joanne Fabrics and on like at places like Fire Mountain Gems or on EBay.I have also gotten lots at pow wows where i sell some of my crafts.Once or twice a year they have gem and mineral shows where they usually have someone selling beads.

I think you can contact some nearby shop like the gift hop where you can find many cheap things which after demolishing gives the materials you want.Peoples use to destroy some other things to get the stuffs and start a new job which is worthy of praise

Yes i totally agree re-using stuff is resourceful and creative. I wish more people would do that! Thanks for your advice.
