We introduced you to some bead findings not too long ago – fun stuff for making into earrings, using as structure for pendants, etc. Well – we have more of them today, plus we are filling in the color gap with silver versions of the gold ones from last time.
So – you might remember these – now in silver color!
So that’s cool.
But we have even more choices now, with more shapes, and mostly, in both colors this time around. Look – gramma’s lacy doilies.
And these starburst sun-themed pieces!
Can’t get away from those cats! (ok – my brain just fired off a random electron and I now see the negative spaces first and this looks like a very satisfied frog instead of two cats. And I can’t un-see it. Argh. )
And finally – this rather surprised looking flowers and leaf pendant. 😉
Clasps – always useful – multi-strand sliding tube clasps
Restock on the Fairy Ribbon – and two stunning new colors. The fairy ribbon is an silk organza ribbon – approx. 42 inches long, and about 2 cm wide if stretched out but it is rolled into a sort of tube. Use by itself to hang a pendant, or weave through a large link chain, or twist with other fibers or strands of beads for a boho look in a bracelet or necklace. Hand-stitched finished edge. You can gather the ends into a bead cone, finish the ends with a fold over crimp, or simply tie in a bow. The colors are gorgeous.
Don’t forget about the C-Lon as a stringing option either. Two new colors in the Tex 135 weight – with is .411 mm size – right in the middle of the sizes. Do note – these are the bigger spools – with 136 yards or 124 meters on them. It’s not that there has been an enormous price jump – it’s just more stuff on the spool.
And a new color in the UltraSuede – Scoundrel Red. Apparently, they have been attending my school of creative naming. This is a great foundation for your beaded embroidery.
As always, all the newest stuff is here!
