Oh - the weather outside is frightful, but my beads are so delightful, and since there's no place to go, let it snow, let it snow let it snow.My beads are brightly gleaming, with ideas, my head is teeming; my Ott lite has a merry glow, so let it snow, let it snow let it snow.My family is hungry and whining, but beads are still a'shining, so as long as there are beads to go, let it snow, let it snow let it snow.
Have you Buttoned up your Christmas list yet? Well - a little bit of snow should help get you in the mood - and these buttons could finish the job! Sure, you can use them as clasps on bracelets, or as a decorative cabochon, or wire them up into a handsome ring - but hey - you could always use them as BUTTONS! You know, for fastening clothing? How awesome would these be on a hand-knitted sweater, hmmm?
Jaded about stones? Of course not - stone beads are too awesome. But Nephrite Jade from B.C. is our featured stone of the month for December! Tough, durable jade has a rich history as a good luck talisman - just the thing for the new year! It is said to bring on feelings of calm and well being - and increases enjoyment of life - which is certainly true of any piece of well-made, attractive jewelry!
Limited Time - Amethyst and Aqua Hearts!
Swarovski has brought out these designer heart shapes in two new colours - well - not NEW new, but new for the hearts - they are now available in Amethyst and Aqua, and just for the next year.
More flatbacks in the store too - if you are looking to bling up your cellphone or something for the season. In sizes from small to extra-beefy!
