40% off Swarovski – continues!!

In case you missed it – Swarovski continues on with it’s plan to stop selling to re-sellers as of October 1, 2021. It will sell to businesses that use Swarovski – in production.

Out, damned 2020! Out, I say!

As years go – it’s time this one went. All the perfumes of Arabia will not sweeten this past year. But it has not been an idle year for us. We bravely leapt into the world of online classes – we learned lots of good stuff about doing that. The big take-away was – a cable provides better connectivity than wi-fi.;-) We found that now we can take our classes to everyone, regardless of geography! Some of our instructors took to it like ducks to water – happily offering classes from where ever they are in the world, without the …

The Scoop on Swarovski

Is it true that Swarovski is discontinuing their line of crystal beads? If so, how long do you think they will be available? We’ve been asked some variation of that question a lot recently. It didn’t help that the rumors were flying thick and fast, making it hard to figure out what is actually going on. Swarovski themselves finally made their announcement last week. Here it is: Swarovski has embarked on an extensive business overhaul program. More than ever, Swarovski wishes to protect its individual brand character and avoid confusion in the marketplace as to the nature and branding of …

Let’s Talk Sparkle: and a few other things!

Let’s talk sparkle, seems to be a funny phrase for me to use! I’ve never been a girly girl, so have always shied away from an overload of sparkle. Is that something that I need to overcome? But, that doesn’t mean that I don’t appreciate it! Because I do!! Just yesterday, I was re-stocking some of the Swarovski Rivolis, and Fancy Stones, but took extra time, because I had to fondle, and admire the lusciousness of them all!! There are obvious benefits to working in a bead store, because staff are encouraged to fondle the merchandise, and we let customers …
