Pearls and Parawire!
Feel like making something wonderful with wire and pearls? Then – this update is for you!
But even if you haven’t spent the last week making sketches of pearl encrusted fairy tiaras sculpted of wire – well – we invite you to have a look at these new freshwater pearls to see what they inspire you to do.
If your taste runs to the traditional – you’ll probably like the Silver Grey round pearls, these Oval cream pearls, or these Natural Mix pearls.
If you like a bit more of a modern twist – then these Coin Pearls or these Light Bronze pearls are really pretty and make very elegant necklaces, earrings, and bracelets!
If your taste runs more to the cutting edge of fashion, where every creation is a super-statement of individuality (me! me! me! – my inner voice is yelling – ooh – that’s me!) – then check out these Storm Ocean Green Stick Pearls or these Ivory Slender Stick Pearls.
And, if your taste runs to the Go-Big-or-Go-Home school of thought – check out these 12 mm Moonlight Silver pearls!
We’ve sorted the pearls by colour, so look for traditional creams, whites, ivories, here: Pearls – White/ Cream, the peacock, greys and blacks are here: Pearls – Grey/ Black and the peaches, golds, bronzes, along with some of the more obviously fashion-inspired colours are here (like greens, blues, etc.): Pearls – Colours
WireNeed wire for wire wrapping? Which means you want square profile wire, and half-round? Here we go – Square and Half-Round wire from Parawire! We have 18 and 21 gauge square and half-round wire in Non-Tarnish Copper, Vintage Bronze, Antique Copper, and of course, Silver and Gold (plated, obviously not solid!)
We’ve also added other gauges of round wire in the Vintage Bronze because it is an excellent match for the Vintaj findings, and in the Gunmetal, again, because it is an excellent match for our gunmetal beads and findings! Check it all out!
Update on the Gilders’ Paste. Wow – the Gilders’ Paste flew out of here so fast, it left multicoloured skid marks! Those of you who were disappointed because it was sold out – good news – it is being restocked (colours as available!) as I write this and will be available online by the time you read this!!
