Lasers! Back in the 60’s – when lasers were developed – so the story goes – the developers described them as “a solution looking for a problem.” Since then – all sorts of problems have come along that they have been solutions for – but I bet you have never thought of this one!
Laser Etched Beads! This is something new – beads that have a coating, similar to AB and the other metallic and iridescent coatings, with a pattern etched into the coating with a laser. The work is so delicate that only the coating is effected – there is no texture on the surface of the bead – in fact, it looks more like the beads have been printed with intricate silk-screened patterns! Our selection is currently heavy on the dagger beads, but I’m sure that much more will come of this exciting new idea!
You coulda put-a ring on it!
All the beady ladies (all the beady ladies) … now put your hands up! If you like ’em you should put a ring on ’em …
And how about these traditional round bezeled rings that you can put your own interesting stuff in, from resin with inclusions to epoxy clay with rhinestones to fantasy Pebeo paints to even … yes – we have the glass cabs to top them off! Woohoo!
And here’s another cool new thing – Jelly Band. This is a translucent plastic strip that you can use like leather, it cuts easily, but is strong and durable. You can punch holes in it, rivet onto it, bead over it, draw on it (oil based sharpies work great – regular sharpies never seem to dry and stay sticky). I like the translucency of it, and when you draw on it, it also looks really cool from the other side. We have the two colors right now, but more coming, and it will work with any of the 10 mm flat leather findings, but we got some nice, light metallic acrylic findings in to keep it all on the light weight side.
