Time in the
September 30th, 2015
So if you are thinking of making Christmas presents this year ... you might want to get started - and we have some suggestions for you.
We added a couple more of the Swarovski Pure Drop Pendant with Cap. We now have 15 colour varieties of these elegant drops - with the lovely metal cap already attached. If you want to make something simple and elegant - one of these on a nice chain fits the bill perfectly. A pair of the smaller ones makes for a dramatic pair of earrings. Alternately - if you want to dress it up a bit, you can use a drop, or maybe 3, as the starting point, and embellish from there.
If you want to do something "charming" for a friend that loves birthstones, then these size SS 34 flatbacks, some glue, and these stepped bezels are a perfect combo. And if they don't like their birthstone (some people don't you know!) - just go with their favourite colour!
|January||Siam (Garnet)||Protects while traveling|
|April||Crystal (Diamond)||Everlasting love|
|June||Crystal AB (Pearl)||Purity|
|October||Rose (Tourmaline) or Opal||Loyalty / Fairness|
If you'd like to be a bit more adventurous - then how about the Notched Wire Wrappers? The "notches" cut into the sides let the wire grip when you wrap on to them; no sliding away. It's a good thing - Bueno Notches, in fact.
There may be flowing water on Mars - just think - we lived to see that! Might we live to see a colony on Mars? Anyway - while Nasa roves on Mars - we have our sights set on the Galaxies. The SilverSilk Knitted Galaxy wire - a 6 mm tube that you can stretch and it collapses down to a thin tube, and then, insert a pencil or wooden dowel or rod, and slide the wire tube up over it, and expand it back up to full size again! It's like magic! (SilverSilk has a couple of basic projects on their site if you need ideas.)
So - sorry to bring up the C-word (Christmas) before Thanksgiving - but we know some of us need a kick in the butt to get going - otherwise the next thing you know it's Dec 24th and you are printing out promissory notes for friends and relatives. It takes time to handcraft loving and thoughtful gifts, and sadly - time is always back-ordered. ;-)
And don't forget - if you love a bargain - more items in the Disco section - that's discontinued and discounted to move!
As ever - the new items can be viewed here, or click on a link or image and hop directly to that item! Cheers!
