New Stuff

Mo’ Spikes, Mo’ Twins, Mo’ Chatons

I love saying “Chaton” – what a wonderful word.
Chaton, Chaton, Chaton. Excuse me, Chaton, please bring me another glass
of Chatonagne. 
96710123553243 Swarovski Elements - Rhinestones - PP 32 Chaton (Article 1028) (Foiled) - Capri Blue (144)A very sparklying Chatonagne that would be. Chatons are pointed-back
rhinestones – and you can embed them in epoxy
clay
(Apoxie Sculpt or Crystal
Clay). Or in polymer clay. You can use them in metal clay too – but you can’t
fire them – they would melt before you got up to temperature – so you have
to leave a little divot for them, and add them afterwards. Or you could go
mixed-media – combining Metal Clay and Epoxy clay. 
s32159 Glass Beads - 17 mm Spikes - Jet Apollo (6)Well
– if rhinestones don’t cause your heartbeat to spike, how about more colours
in the Spike beads?
You can really make a point with these. Talk about your statement jewelry!
s32164 Czech Seedbeads - 2 Hole Twins - Amethyst ApolloAnd
speaking of new beads, if the new seedbead shape – the
two-hole “twin” bead
– has fired your imagination – then you’ll be happy to see we have more colours
in these now too! 
s32171 Czech Seedbeads - Tiny Farfalle - Black Diamond AB (1 strand)And
by extension – if unusual shapes of small beads are what floats your boat
– we just got some nice Farfalle
mixes
. Farfalle are also known as peanut
beads – although Farfalle translates to butterfly. The reason is that the
manufacturer named them Farfalle for their shape like Farfalle (butterfly)
pasta – and beaders renamed them “peanut” beads – because that is also what
they are shaped like. I think these Black
Diamond AB
ones are really stunning
– regardless of the name. 
s32194 Stringing -  Silk Strings - Adriatic Blue (1)Hmmm
– what else is new this week? Well – more colours of
Silk Strings.
Silk is so delightful – the colours are so rich, the texture is so – well
– silky.
s32174 Firepolish - 8 x 12 mm Faceted Olive - Olivine Cream Givre Lustre (1)And
some new fancy firepolish beads
too. Like these olive-green
coloured olive-shaped
beads! 
s32176 Firepolish - 5 x 9 mm Olive Chevron Nugget - Aqua Celsian (strand 25)Or
these, which are also olivish in shape, and have some green too. 
More fiery and less olive-like, these Ruby
Bronze
s32178 Firepolish - 4 x 6 mm Faceted Columnar - Ruby Bronze (25)beads
are very striking. 
Also red – but a different kind of red – a fun and funky
s32175 Firepolish - 7 x 10 mm Faceted Oval - Cherry Cordial (25)red instead of a formal and serious red, are these Cherry
Cordial
beads.
