Light as a feather …

“I am as light as a feather,”

We have the beads that are as light as a feather. If you, like me, like big beads (I cannot lie), then the light and airy decoupage beads can let you go big, without being too heavy to leave home. We are selling them in strands this time around, which means you get more, can do more, and don’t have to wonder what you will get – you get what is on the strand. Each strand may have a slightly different combo of beads on it, or it might not. I notice a lot of the strands have the beads in pairs, multiples of two – so matching pairs for earrings are a distinct possibility. Pattern on the back is the same as on the front.

Well – not all of them are strands – these pendants of cats are singles, but even at 70mm long – they are as light as the soft downy fluffy from a Persian cat. Though possibly not when said cat launches itself at you from the top of the bookshelf.

BTW – we call these “Decoupage” because they are clearly made with printed images, but the surface is a smooth, polished resin. They are not slapped together with glue and stickers – they are professional and elegant beads!

Despite being metal – these new Cloisonne beads are fairly light too – due to being hollow inside. The leaves would make lovely earrings, don’t you think? And that hummingbird with an ice cream cone would look very nice in the middle of a bracelet. (Go ahead – tell me that does not look like an ice cream cone.) And, I can totally see you scalloping off with some shells.

Still on the topic of feathers, how about some of these laser-etched dagger beads. Literally – the beads are coated with a process similar to creating an Aurora Borealis effect, and then part of the design is removed with a laser. The end result is some amazingly patterned beads.

If you are trying to get it together, and last week’s new clasps didn’t do it for you – oh, and btw – sorry for the sold out misshap. I updated the database after everyone had gone off for the holidays – not quite putting it together that with the next update being on the first day back, the items wouldn’t have been received yet. Doh. My bad. But by end of day, it had all been sorted out.

Anyway – I love this series of clasps, so I lobbied to add these two new colors. Unfortunately – I think they are out of production, so we’re just burning through back stock. Once they are completely gone, I will have to start looking for something else.

What I love about them is that they are really clean and simple and neutral. They are strong magnets, but I have not had any have the magnet come out of the case. They are great for bracelets – they just work and don’t detract from the design. And I love stuff that just does what it is supposed to.
