A Rosebud bead, by any other name, would bead as sweet. Although, in my humble opinion, these are too round and snowglobe-shaped to be rosebuds and really look more like ... cabbages. Cabbage Roses, perhaps? Anyhoo - perhaps they will remind you of happier days?
Or perhaps your beady garden needs butterflies instead? We have the new etched Farfalle. Farfalle means butterfly - just in case you missed that connection. Variously called farfalle, peanut or dumbell beads, these etched variations have significant texture to them.
More of the two-hole shaped beads - in this case - the 2-hole Czechmate Chexx squares - these new two-hole shapes really lend themselves to being used in some very clever designs.
We'll be at the Creativ Festival this Friday, Saturday, Sunday, but our regular location will be open as well. If you are going to the show, be sure and drop by and say hi! We have picked up a lot of new kits for the show, and we'll be having a draw, and make and takes at the booth, so be sure to visit us. And if you are not going, come on by the store, where the parking is free and easy. ;-)
All sorts of other new goodies too, so as always - you can click on a link or image above, or get started with the new items here. Happy Shopping!
Trunk Show - Nov 15
We're also organizing a Lampworkers/Metal Smith/Hand made Trunk Show (on Nov 15). We do this to support artists that would like to try selling but are intimidated by making enough inventory for a full show. If you would like to participate and be a vendor, contact us for details. Vendors - the postcards are ready - you can pick them up for distributing.
