Snake Wind and Snake Berry

We’re not above the occasional fart joke around here – and I have to admit, when I saw that these beads were called Snake Wind, well – I’ll just let you imagine what streets my mind wandered down. Snake, however, is actually the name for the finish that gives it the darkened edges to the facets, giving the beads a distinctive scaled look. The Berry mix is obvious – and Wind, well, why not?

They are part of the new 4mm fire polish beads this week, including the Nebula finish,

and these metallics.

And this Fuchsia! I have to admit – when I saw these – I thought – “these have to be coated” – their colour coming from an added layer over the core glass. And in fact, it is, but I had to take a hammer to them to get it to damage the coating – so I would say that it is pretty durable!

In other beads, we have some more colours in the waxed wood beads, which are light, and fun, and casual Boho Chic.

If Boho Chic is absolutely not your thing, then check out two more of the growing line of Growing Pendants from Swarovski. These pendants, with over 500 handset interior crystals, are inspired by new-crystal-formation and druzies, and are one of the more beautiful and spectacular items to come from Swarovski in a while.

Holiday Closing

We will close for the holidays at end of day Saturday, Dec 23, be closed on the 24th, Christmas Eve, and on over the week between Christmas and New Year’s, reopening on Jan 2. Our trusty computers will, of course, be standing by to take your orders, so you may still shop when the need arises. We will ship when we get back – next year!

Shipping Deadlines

Shipping depends a lot on where you are. We can tell you that the warehouse closes on the 22nd – so anything ordered after the 21st that has to come from the warehouse, won’t ship until the new year. We will try to get everything out the door before we take the week off – but anything ordered after noon Dec 22 won’t make it into the mail until Jan 2.

Last Call to Redeem Frequent Beader Points

We wrapped up the online Frequent Beader Points program in July – with a grace period to redeem outstanding points by the end of the year. We just want to remind you that you have until Dec 31 to redeem those points. You can place your order using the “call-back” option and note in the comments that you would like to apply any frequent beader points that you have to that order, and we will call you back with the total adjusted price.

If you shop online and in-store, you may convert existing online points to in-store points. Please email to request point conversion. Please email your request by Dec 31.
