New This Week

On fire for you, baby

Oh - we're on fire for you, baby! Fabulous new firepolished beads!
I tell you - it's getting harder and harder to even FIND new firepolish beads because, well - we have them all! All the regular production stuff, and most of the limited edition stuff too!
Well - there's some really UGLY stuff out there that we DON'T carry - hope you don't mind about that!
s31641 Firepolish - 8 mm Faceted Windows - Bronzed Ruby (strand 25)Anyway - some new firepolish beads - some faceted window beads. Thess31640 Firepolish - 8 mm Faceted Windows - Green Turquoise Picasso (strand 25)e have a flat "window" cut on each side - giving the transparent ones an almost cathedral stained glass look. The opaque ones have an air of mystery - with the hint of alternate colour on the side - like they have been freshly mined and polished.
Pressed Glass too!
Our qus31648 Glass Daggers - 5 x 16 mm Dagger Beads - Aqua Moonglow (25)est for daggers s31653 Glass Daggers - 5 x 16 mm Dagger Beads - Earth Picasso (25)continues - and we have added new daggers in each of the three colour categories, Warm colours, Cool colours,s31649 Glass Daggers - 5 x 16 mm Dagger Beads - Matte Cafe au Lait Rainbow (25) and Neutrals.

Speaking of the slightly dangerous-looking dagger beads - (really - s31665 Glass Beads - 17 mm Spikes - Matte Russian Blue (6)they are silky smooth and not at all sharp!) - we now have "Spikes." These new beads are pretty interesting, especially if you have been following Laura McCabe's work and using her patterns. She uses gemstone spike beads, and these look like a very good and reasonably priced alternate.
And even if you haven't - they still look like pretty interesting beads!
s31669 Czech Seedbeads - 2 Hole Twins - SapphireOh, and a few more twins - the two-hole seedbeads. We're starting to get these in colours now!

Update on the Lampworking Studio!
We have a functioning lampworking studio now! The first Happy Hour will be next Thursday - February 23 - barring unforeseen complications. If you will be coming in for this - please call ahead to schedule. The studio may be available before that - we'll keep you posted.
Next project will be the unpacking and setting up of the Metal Smithing Studio - but that will be Rosemary's project - She says she has it all planned out in her head!
