Capturing Your Attention
And now that we have your attention, how about some Capture Chain? Two more additions to our Capture Chain selection, actually – Urban, which is a silver wire knit tube over a gunmetal ball chain – very chic, and Khaki, which is a bronze over a black chain, for a more earthy look.
If you prefer – there is also the new Knitted Wire tubes – well – flat tubes, and if that doesn’t grab you – you can always make your own knitted wire tubes, as we now have the Lazee Daizee Viking Knit wire weaving tool in two sizes!
The stones that we brought out two weeks ago just cried out for some metal settings. However, finding settings that fit the stones, or vice versa, seems to be more of a challenge than you might think. We found these mounts – but they don’t fit many of the stones. But – we’ve found other things to do with them – check out this week’s Inspiration!
Some of these mounts are unfinished, and come looking almost black with patina – but you can remove it if you want, or part of it, or leave it – depending on your preference!
If you are itching for some more stone stuff, how about these Red Creek Jasper matching pairs of stone pendants. Small enough that you could make some killer earrings with these – and it’s not often that we find stone pendants this small and thin and actually useable for earrings.
And in the new to us stone department – Sonora Dendritic Rhyolite. Browns, greys and caramel colours form crazy-ass map-like images.
And, if wire wrapping is your thing, but the thought of practicing with the silver wire is making you choke, we have more of the Square Copper Wire in 20 and 22 gauge. Practice makes perfect!
We’ve done some serious re-organizing of our Findings and Metal Beads pages. We now have such an extensive selection of Copper and Brass findings – we just can’t keep them all on one page any more – it makes it too hard to find what you are looking for, and takes too long for the page to load.
- Brass – Vintage Look – Not just Vintaj anymore – as we have found some new sources of some great looking vintagey brass pieces – coming soon!
- Copper Findings – mostly crimps, leather crimps, crimp covers, filigree, other assorted items.
- Copper Clasps
- Copper Bails
- Copper Head/Eyepins
- Copper Jumprings
- Copper Chain
- Copper Earrings
- Copper Sep/Conn/Link – all those linky-connectory-separatory things.
- Copper Caps/Cones Bead cap and end cones – and some that really blur the distinction between them.
and for even more copper, added to our Metal Beads section.
And we had to do some re-org’ing in the Brass section too.
Somebody stop me before I reorganize everything and you can’t find ANYTHING!
