Czmate Diamonds, GemDuos & Beetle Wings

This week – we’re adding the Czechmate Diamonds to the shaped bead buffet. Unlike the GemDuos (and we have more of those too!) – these are a diamond shape with the hole running through the short axis – top to bottom if you like, although, once you turn them on their side to use them, it’s isn’t top to bottom any more. These have the same hole spacing as the other Czechmate 2 hole beads, although the hole (!) fun of these is seeing how you can make them fit together and create interesting patterns and textures.

As I mentioned – we have more colours of the GemDuos too, these are also a diamond-shape, but with a raised top, and the hole running from side to side.

If you’ve been waiting for the Permanent Finish Galvanized Toho’s – then today is your lucky day! Both size 11/0s and 8/0s – these are the shiny metallic look that you love in the galvanized finish, but in a more permanent and durable version. They come in a rainbow of glorious colours, in both sizes.

However, when it comes to a rainbow of glorious colours, it’s hard to beat these iridescent Beetle Wings! Actually not wings, but the “elytra” – the forewing that is the covering for the actual wing. These wing cases are part of tradition Asian hand crafts – used in embroidery and embellishment. The art was on the decline, but is enjoying a revival, thanks to the support of some prominent members of the royal family in Thailand. The beetles have a short life-span, and the wing cases are collected after the beetle has lived out it’s natural 4-week life span, making these a sustainable resource. They are surprisingly durable, and have been known to retain their colour and shine even after 100 years!
