How do you follow a tough act like a sale? I’m betting you are thinking you are all stocked up for the season and we can’t possibly entice you with anything else.
We love a challenge. 😉
How about Gem Silica, a little more Larimar, that Griffin Silk you all have been asking for, also Limited Edition Druzy Pendants, and Gita Findings?
Are you ready? Hang on.
As hinted at a couple of weeks ago, we have a few choice pieces of Gem Silica – the rarest and most coveted member of the quartz family. Like chunks of turquoise trapped in liquid emerald – these rough slabs are stunning pendants – combining the beauty of turquoise and chrysocolla in a much tougher material. These are one of a kind pieces, for your one of a kind creations.
Larimar. Also mentioned briefly a couple of weeks ago – we have some one-of-a-kind Larimar cabochons. If you are not familiar with Larimar, it comes exclusively from the Caribbean and is the colour of a warm ocean breeze. It is rare, and getting rarer by the minute. Primarily because I screwed up and accidentally messed up the release date, so that some of it sold before it was supposed to. So we are down to just these 3 pieces left. Maybe don’t wait if they strike your fancy?
Griffin natural silk thread for beading. You’ve been wanting it, and here it is! On cards, and with the needle already installed. Necklaces made with natural silk drape naturally along the contours of the body and always project a look of elegance and beauty. This sleek thread has the characteristic lustre and the irresistible natural beauty of pure natural silk. In three different thicknesses (Size 2 = .45 mm, Size 3 = .5 mm, Size 4 = .6 mm)
Heck – you might want to go check out the pearls too! They can be traditional, or avant-garde!
Druzy, Peach Moonstone, Jasper Pyrite, and more. Limited Edition means we do have more than one, but not a lot, and once they are gone, that’s it. They are all a little different – that’s the nature of handmade and natural stones. The nice thing about these is that they are mounted in settings, so all you need to do is put them on a chain to wear them. Or you can gussy them up with matching or contrasting beads. Or wear them as a simple pendant now, and fancy them up later when you get the inspiration. It’s all up to you!
But wait, that’s not all!
Gita Findings – which, if you have not heard, are metal findings designed to take Swarovski pointed back rhinestones. They have metal prongs that you fold down over the stone to hold the stone in place – no gluing or soldering required! Make a pendant to slip on a chain by itself, create dangles for earrings, or use it as the focal and inspiration for a more elaborate creation. Possibly not instant gratification – but pretty-darn-quick-gratification. 😉
Still hunting for gift ideas?
So, whatever your beady needs or questions – we’re here to help. Just ask!
In previous years, we have been closed between Christmas and New Year’s. This year, for the first time ever, we will be open Dec 27 – 28 – 29 until 6 pm. (Including the lampwork and metal studio.)
