- Big Ol’ Big Hole Stone Beads January 23, 2020
Big Hole Stone Beads
Yes – big hole beads – takes up to 2mm leather or other type cord. More design possibilities. Shamballa bracelets, wrapped, wire, cord – yep – there are times when you need a bigger hole.
Big spools baby – 300 yards – 274 meters. That’s three times the length of a football field.
Gimp – not a condition that describes legs after that ill-fated plan to hike up the mountain – but the tightly coiled wire – also called French Wire – that you slip over the thread at the end of the necklace, before you add the clasp. It protects the thread from abrasion, and makes for a nice looking finish.
Hearts – Santa & the Valentines
Once upon a time, there was a lovely couple who met and fell in love at a chocolate-making class. However, their affection for each other was so passionate that the chocolate kept melting in their hands as they tried to make dark-chocolate ganache-filled truffles with a hint of Grand Marnier. Frustrated with their attempts – they took a vacation to the Arctic to see the northern lights. As they stood, holding hands under the flaming green and red sky – they realized – their hands were cold.
So they packed up their chocolate, their collection of garden gnomes, and their assorted cats, and moved to the north pole. Sam and Anita Valentine now live next door to the Clauses. Their cats chase the reindeer, the garden gnomes confuse the heck out of the elves, and they drop off their chocolate samples to Mr and Mrs Claus – which is why they are so jolly and … truffle-shaped. 😉
25% off – from now until Valentines day.
True love never melts. We have stunning Swarovski Crystal Heart Pendants, scintillating Swarovski Crystal Heart Beads, and just delightful glass beads. All of which are guaranteed to not melt in your hands.
Speaking of meeting people – we will be playing host to Bloom’s “Taste of Lampworking” class. Bloom is for 50+ folks that want to meet others and get out and do things. They host events where you can get out and meet others, chat, do something new, and generally fulfill your promise to yourself to get out more. If this sounds like something for you – check out their website!

- Be a Creative Light
“Don’t be afraid of the dark. Shine!”
― Vera Nazarian, The Perpetual Calendar of Inspiration
Have you noticed how many celebrations and cultures use candles and lamps? The common reason is to bring light into darkness.
Creativity is light and is especially needed in January – what seems to be the darkest period of the year. While we want to stay cozy and warm in our homes, sometimes we just need to get out and shine. A class is a perfect time to get your creativity burning and connect with others. Our late-January classes will do just that! Metalworkers of all skill levels will love Darija Radic‘s or Christine Woollacott‘s classes. How about a beadwork class with Catherine Sequalino Poitier or Pamela Kearns? Expand your chainmaille skills with Gillian Clarke! And, of course, you can always connect with friends at our open sessions as you work on your projects.

Our Latest Inspiration
- InspirationFX: Falling Leaves
Get your creative juices flowing
by: Rosemary Beasley
When I saw the two strands of the “freeform” tiger iron, I was inspired by their “leafy” shape to make a necklace inspired by the fall season. The tiger iron is streaked with slate, rust and little hits of mustard yellow making me think of November skies and falling leaves. The glass leaves and 2mm pearls add a lightness contrasting with the darkness of the tiger iron.
