Floating Display Frames

I just want to rave on about these floating display frames. I didn’t get a lot of space to talk about them the other day when we rolled them out – so I just want to show you them in more detail – because I think these things are the bees knees. The first time I saw them was in a Swarovski promotional package – there was one of their big, honking crystal pendants, floating in space. Ok, I thought – that’s cool, but a vacuum formed package is kind of a luxury for the regular person like me. Then …

We just got these cool BeadSlide clasps for use with loomed or beadweaving pieces that have single row of beads at the end (loomed or square stitch, vs peyote, with its staggered bead pattern). To use, you slide the final row of beads into the tube – there is a gap for …

Finding Nemo – or maybe just Delicas

I got an earful the other day from a customer who was severely frustrated at trying to find a specific Delica colour on our website. She was searching for DB-541. We made a conscious effort, right back in the beginning, when we first started carrying Delicas, to preserve their original numbering. As have most of the other bead vendors online. So the names may change, but the numbers don’t – which means that if you have a pattern that calls for DB-1 – well – everywhere you go – that’s going to be gunmetal. Or Hematite. Or Dark Metallic Grey. …
