SPECIAL ANNOUNCEMENT: BeadFX is thrilled and delighted to be the first in Canada to be able to bring you the new fall line of Swarovski beads and pendants and the new colour effects - Scarabaeus Green and Light Chrome.
KAPUTT DESIGNED BY JEAN PAUL GAULTIER
Design Story: While the whole world strives for perfection, Swarovski discovers the beauty of imperfection, guided and inspired by none other than design legend Jean Paul Gaultier. Together with Swarovski's own trend, design and product management experts, Gaultier developed the spectacular Kaputt Collection exclusively for Swarovski. Like its name, the German word for "broken," already suggests, the collection presents a technological innovation that deliberately breaks with convention. It celebrates the appeal of being different and unpredictable, which, according to the designer, is much more exciting than the precise and perfect.
Description: Broken and raw, but elegant at the same time, the Kaputt design captivates with distinctively irregular, partly unpolished, or frosted surfaces that give it an all natural, almost meteoritic appearance. It comes in rich, shimmering metallic colors as well as classics, such as Crystal and Crystal AB. Look: In a world of flawless, artificial beauty, Kaputt mirrors the attractiveness of irregular, natural surfaces for a down-to-earth look that is both rock and chic.
CRYSTAL SCARABAEUS GREEN DESIGNED BY JEAN PAUL GAULTIER
Design Story: Expressing his desire for an exclusive effect that would match his Kaputt Collection, haute couture icon Jean Paul Gaultier developed Crystal Scarabaeus Green together with a team of experts from Swarovski. For his effect he wanted this precise scintillating shade of green, combined with the mythological shimmer of the Egyptian scarab. Description: Aptly named, Crystal Scarabaeus Green evokes the magic glow of the scarab, shimmering in green, blue, and purple with a metallic luster that combines bright and shadowy facets to create a stunningly graphic surface. Look: With its beetle-like glow, Crystal Scarabaeus Green lends itself perfectly to nature-inspired and bold eco-designs. It powerfully mimics nature and sets a rebellious statement for any eco-warrior. However, its shiny surface also evokes an otherworldly appearance that echoes futuristic, stellar avant-garde looks. The metallic rainbow hue caters to the sporty sci-fi appeal that celebrates state-of-the-art technology and transports us into other dimensions.
Accompanying the Scarabaeus Green - the glittering and otherworldly Light Chrome - a silver metallic symphony of cold, reflected light. Designed to hold a mirror to the world - Light Chrome is both a powerful neutral and a reflection of the world around it, harmonizing and echoing the dazzling dance of light!
As of today - Sept 1 - we are taking pre-orders for these new, dazzling items. If you want to be the first to play with these pretties - incorporating them into your personal designs or first to market with your exclusive creations - then pre-order them now. We expect delivery in approximately 10 days, and will begin shipping as soon as possible thereafter.

Look out - its the low profile quad-copter beads! Well - no - it's Quadra Tiles - another multi-hole shaped bead for your beading delight! This is a low profile (that part is true), fairly thin square bead that you can use to link and stabilize your multi-shape-bead-creations. 19 new colours, and, I'm sure, more on the way.
More colours in Pips too - Pastel Pips and Matte Pips. More of the soft, pretty colours that we are seeing in the rest of the shaped beads, so you can work in the same colour palette all the way.
I'm keeping it short and sweet this week, as we are gearing up for some new sparklies. You want to keep an eye on this space for Sep 1 when we will be rolling out ... well - no, if I told you, they'd have to shoot me. Just make a big shiny X on the calendar for September 1 ...
We're still doing some consolidating and re-org'ing in the store, so we have some deep, deep discounts on some stuff that we'd like to move out to make room for other goodies, (like so don't forget to stock up on these, as they are going for rock-bottom prices! Click on an image or link, or see all the new stuff in right here. Cheers!
