Oops, I did it again!

Oops, I did it again!

Just when you thought it was safe to go back into the bead store …

I found some more stone pendants

I know, I know. You have all these good intentions, resolutions to use the beads you have, resurrect projects, …

but then I go and show you

s64887 OOAK Stone Pendant -  Circle - Labradorite

Holy Aphrodite of Labradorite-y! Is that yummy or what?

Because this one, meh … heh heh heh. Not!

No?

How about … ?

s64893 OOAK Stone Pendant -  Rectangle - Shattuckite

This is Shattuckite. Shattuckite is a melange of Chrysocolla, Azurite and Malachite, with a soupçon of copper-bearing Cuprite. For those of us who can’t decide which of those stones they like the best. Why not have them all?

Feeling Earthy? Maybe a warmer color palette?

Or perhaps, you’d like this portrait by Mother Nature of the Loch Ness Monster, rendered in Moss Agate. I guess that makes it the Loch Ness Mosster.

All these are one of a kind items, and you know what happens to those! While you think about it, they go to someone else and then you are sad. 🙁

So check out all the stone pendants!

And I promise – next week we will have some glass beads. Pretty radical, eh?


Bead shopping in the time of COVID-19 – This Week – June 25

Our first week open was a success. Everyone who came in was sooo happy to get out of the house, and see the pretty beads.

Hours:

Open for in-store Shopping – Wednesday – Saturday 11-6. Reservations preferred.

Wear a mask | Social distance | Hand sanitizer at the door.

Closed Sunday.

Monday – Tuesday, we will be in-store picking and shipping. Curbside pick up available 11-6. No in-store access.

We are about back up to speed in picking and shipping. Canada Post states on their website: “Customers should anticipate delays as important safety measures, including physical distancing, means it takes longer to process heavy parcel volumes.” So it’s not completely back to normal – whatever normal is.

Online orders, pre-paid only, can be picked up curbside 11-6, Monday – Friday.

  • If you are local – you should see an option to select “Store Pick-up/Walk in” in the shopping cart as the shipping method. You will not be charged for shipping, even if you are under the free shipping limit.
  • If, for some reason, you do not see the option for “Store Pick-up/Walk in” – say, your address on file falls outside the computer’s definition of “local,” but you still want to come and get it, then you can choose “call-back” as an option, and tell us you want to pick it up in the comment box, and we will remove the shipping, and call you for payment info.
  • We will call when it is ready and arrange a pick-up window of time. Pick-ups will be on Mondays to Fridays, 11-6 pm.

Phones are being answered Monday through Saturday (11 am – 6 pm). If you need answers about does “this” go with “that,” just ask and we will try to help.

You have all been so amazing – we are profoundly grateful for your support and happy to be part of creative process, or coping strategy, as the case may be!

We love your little notes of appreciation – we savour every one of them.

Stay Safe!

Summer school

Well, 2020 has been one doozy of a year so far! COVID-19 has turned the world upside down and everyone – businesses and individuals – have needed to rejig their lives.

Don’t worry, though. That light at the end of the social distancing tunnel isn’t a train – IT IS A COMPUTER MONITOR! Starting in July, BeadFX’s Virtual Summer School will be open to all! Whether you are in Toronto, further afield in Canada, the United Sates or the somewhere in rest of the World, our virtual classes are open to you.

These classes are an easy and relaxing way to learn basic skills or up your game with more advanced techniques. Most classes will feature materials you may already have a home; you can always order from BeadFX to supplement your stash. Other classes may require a kit that will be mailed by the instructor directly to you.

Virtual classes will be brought to you through ZOOM. All you’ll need is a computer monitor (with a speaker/microphone), IPad or tablet. Classes will be interactive and instructors will be able to answer your questions and provide demonstrations. Once you’ve registered, about 10 days prior to the class, you will be sent the class instructors and the electronic link to the virtual class. We have made changes to our class cancellation policy, so be sure to review it.

More information will be coming soon about the classes being offered. If there is a class you would like to take, please let Pam, our Class Coordinator, know at pam@beadfx.com. She’ll do her best to see what can be done.
