The Rise of the Mutants!

Giant mutant creatures are sweeping a path of destruction across the country – pack the station wagon and head for the hills! No – wait – it’s Toho Hybrid ColorTrends size 8/0 and 11/0 seedbeads. My bad. Mutants, Hybrids. Nevermind. We’re good.

Actually – the Hybrid colors are the result of an alliance between the technical expertise of the Japanese beadmakers – Toho, and the 300 year tradition of color innovation from the Czech glass bead makers. These beads are manufactured in Japan, and then shipped to the Czech republic for multiple processes that are producing unique and never-before-seen colors. And then shipped here to us, and hence to you. So, in terms of frequent flyer miles – these beads are packing them on! If you can’t travel – at least your beads can!

We’ve already got these in the Triangles and Demi-Rounds and a few bugles, so now we are expanding into the size 8/0 and 11/0 seedbeads.

That Manager Is At It Again

I read a recent article by Tim McCreight – renowned metalsmith and jewelry maker, author and instructor about clasps. He says we want four things from clasps – they must be secure, easy to use, enhance the jewelry, and oh yeah, be affordable. To which, I would generally add – “Yes – pick 3 of those 4.” However, thanks to our crazy, special-sticker wielding manager – you can now have all four! Secure, easy to use, beautiful and affordable! A big bunch of these beautiful box clasps – sterling silver, set with Swarovski stones or fancy glass cabochons at 50% off!!!! These clasps are beauties – and will either perfect that necklace you’ve been planning, or inspire you to new heights of creativity. Don’t feel you have to have an immediate use either – they will keep – but the deals won’t! Once they are gone, as the saying goes – they are gone!

And if you are feeling more angular – how about some cubes, or cubists? Do they make an impression? or am I being too post-modern?
