Be that Girl with the Pearl

Or the lady with the pearl. The gal with the pearl. The dude with the pearl. The sexually-ambiguous, don’t-force me-into-a-pigeon-hole, free-spirit with a pearl. Pearls aren’t just for royalty anymore – they are for everyone!

I think our pearls pretty much speak for themselves – from nuggets to near round, from classic to modern – pearls make a timeless statement.

And – last, but certainly not least – we are thrilled to offer “Your Beading Mentor” – a collaboration with Sandy Paluzzi and our own in-house photographer, designer and not-just-a-pretty-jewelry-maker, Dwyn Tomlinson. This book has been a long time in the works, and is a personal guide to the ins and outs of bead stringing. For many years, Sandra ran her own bead store and online bead-zine – The Beading Times. But before she started, she too knew nothing about beading!

Sandra says, “I still remember my earliest beading days. I spent a lot of money on tools I still haven’t used, made jewelry that quickly fell apart, tried desperately to make a pair of earrings with comparable loops, and otherwise cost myself a lot of frustration, money and time. Then along came Kathy Hrycej, my best beading buddy and mentor.” But time marches on – and on the eve of retiring, Sandra has decided to gather all the tips, hints, suggestions from friends, customers and beading pals from over the years – in one place – so that you don’t have to spend years struggling to learn. And it is illustrated by our own in-house photographer, Dwyn Tomlinson – which contains, as one reviewer said – the best picture of a clam-shell tip I have ever seen. This is a concentrated collection of information! All in black and white.
