Sometimes, I feel like the beads in an update really don’t need me to say anything other than – here, have at them.
This is one of those updates.
I’m going to start with these – Terra Agate. These big barrel beads – I keep thinking they look like lampwork beads. They are so gorgeous, and so individual – they look hand-crafted.
Chrysocolla – it’s no secret I love chrysocolla, and judging from the way it flies out the door, I’m thinking a fair number of you do too!
Mind you – Lapis has been known to be my fave too. No collection of gorgeous stone beads is complete without some Lapis.
And then, for something a little different – some Iolite. This soft purple and grey stone has a quiet, classic beauty all it’s own.
Or, on a smaller scale – these star cut Sardonyx …
And the more subtlely coloured star cut Labradorite.
Mixed Colour Tourmaline – always a fave –
Although, I have to say – this Strawberry Quartz is a refreshing change too.
I also love the “ethnic”-look beads – for want of a better term, and please, if you can think of a better term, let me know! Boho-chic? Whatever you want to call them, these graphically-patterned beads are inspired by the traditional Indian and Tibetan Dzi beads.
Anyway – the stone-aholics are in deep doo-doo this week – because – this week it is all about the stones.
Oh, and for those calling Pam every every day 😉 about the supplies for the Jean Power’s Peacock Pearl Box class – she can now say the pearls are in, and some of the big Swarovski stones too. (There are spaces in the June 1 class, the June 2 class is sold out.)
We will be closed Friday, open Saturday, closed Sunday, and open Monday for Easter Monday.
Of course, you can always sit at your computer and gnaw the ears off your chocolate bunny while shopping online.
