TierraCast and Restock on Flying Stones

First the restock! Fancy Jasper (also known as Rainbow Jasper) restock – we haven’t had this in awhile. The translucency and glossiness of this stone kicks it up a notch from most jaspers. Restock on the Terra Agate that is so beautiful and was such a hit in April that it flew out the door! And restock on the Dzi beads – which also flew out the door! Are you at peace now – one with the universe now that you can get those beads you missed? Repeat after me – Ohhhm – Watt? Is meditating too shocking? Well – …

April Showers bring May … Pearls

Should your Mom be the girl with the pearl(s)? Or should it be you? With all that water out there – there might be oysters growing pearls at the bottom of my garden. I’m scared to look. I’m sure I heard the Jaws theme when I slogged out to inspect my daffodils – which are fast mutating into water lilies. If you’d prefer to stay warm and dry – we have a lovely selection of Big Hole pearls for you this week. With their 2.5mm holes – you can make leather bracelets – very handsome, put them on cord, or …

Bail Out, Itsy Bitsy Coins

Nope – we’re not changing our business model here. It’s just that this week, we have TierraCast Bails for your pendant-hanging pleasure, and 4mm Diamond Cut Faceted Stone Coins – which is a bit of a mouthful. Bails – a bail is a loop to hang something or hold it. That wire handle on a bucket – that’s the bail. These bails are for hanging pendants, from crystal pendants to whatever you want to dangle. It’s tough to quantify what a bail will fit on, and most of them are pretty flexible in terms of working for more than one …

Too Beautiful for Words

Sometimes, I feel like the beads in an update really don’t need me to say anything other than – here, have at them. This is one of those updates. I’m going to start with these – Terra Agate. These big barrel beads – I keep thinking they look like lampwork beads. They are so gorgeous, and so individual – they look hand-crafted. Chrysocolla – it’s no secret I love chrysocolla, and judging from the way it flies out the door, I’m thinking a fair number of you do too! Mind you – Lapis has been known to be my fave …

Do we have Bezels? – Yes we have Nunn

We’d give you the stars and the moon and the sun – but we have Nunn. Nunn Designs that is! Are you a fan of the lovely creations of Nunn Designs? We are – and especially our mixed-media-fiend Anne Marie, who is little bit like that kid that is always, “Mommy, mommy – can we get some of these?” Good thing she has good taste! So we have new shapes in bezels, for those of you who like to resin-ate. Fingernail Earring Findings – if you haven’t seen these, you might be a bit confused. They are designed to hold …
