New Bezel Pans for Resin, and, of course, anything else you want to get down and mix your media on, or in.
New glittery stuff to add to your Resin creations.
And we will shortly* have Molds and Templates to go with the Industrial-style bezels. The molds have a slight bevel to them, so that the shapes you make have a little facet on the edges when you drop them into the bezels. Makes for a different look from the domed or flat style of resin. The templates are useful too for getting an accurate cut out of the paper or fabric you want to include as the background. *Darn you postal delays!
I know that Anne Marie is very excited about this update!
Compacts and Minaudieres
Here is another thing to be excited about. From the secret, curious, vintage stockpile – a box of vintage compacts and Minaudieres. That’s a small, decorative handheld (clutch) purse for the fashion-accessory challenged.
Now, bear in mind, these have been banging around for a few decades in conditions that are not necessarily conducive to them remaining pristine. In fact, it is entirely possible that they are in that box in the first place because they were less than perfect. Some of them have numbers scratched into them – so they might have been sales samples. We don’t know. It’s doesn’t matter. The point is, they are a project and you are going to do something glorious. You’ll cover them or modify them or do something grand, and the surface underneath won’t matter. Read the extended description to find out what the flaws (personality quirks) are, but remember – they are old – like some of us.
Also – we are have to beat the staff off with a stick on these in order to offer them to you – they keep leaving sticky notes saying “I want this one.”
Not so one of a kind, but quirky, are these Lockets. They have a front cover, but it appears to be missing a window or glass insert or enameled piece. I don’t know, but Anne Marie has glommed onto these too – and is planning a class. It’s not on her class list yet, so keep checking to see when it is available. (That’s a hint if ever I wrote one.)
I’m thinking we should have called this the Anne Marie update! The black and white crystal clay was her idea too.
And we have a bunch more of the strands of metal beads in brushed silver. Plated fine silver over a copper base, these beads are hollow and lightweight – although stringing hollow beads is mildly annoying as the needle goes in one side and then hunts around to find the hole and come out the other side, just in time for you to get your finger in the way and stab yourself. At least the potato-chip shaped curvy disks don’t have that problem!
And these small, metal beads are always popular – they make a great accent bead.
- 3mm Faceted Cube – Brushed Silver (strand)
- 2.3mm Faceted Cube – Antiqued Silver (Hill Tribe) (strand)
- 3×1.4mm Faceted Heishi – Antiqued Brass (strand)
- 3×1.4mm Faceted Heishi – Bright Copper (strand)
And you might need some big headpins to go with that too.
We’ve also added the 18gauge coloured Aluminum wire to our online stock. This is good for providing structure to larger wire wrap, or making small armatures. Aluminum wire is very soft and easily bent, so not so good for hanging heavy weights, (i.e. don’t hang plants off it), but strong enough for jewelry applications. It has a colour-lacquer finish for vibrant colours, or various metal looks.
