As I mentioned last week - Swarovski makes these lovely sample flags. They look like they would be a fun thing to make - I bet they would be way more effective if you were doing shows and wanted to show the available colours to your potential customers. A nice handmade flag of heavy silk or velvet, with short strands of the various colours stitched on - what an awesome sales tool that would be!
Here is the next flag with more new stuff.
Seven new colours join the existing two - Ivory and Mystic Black.
From the left, Red Coral, Coral, Pink Coral, Ivory, Jade, Turquoise, Lapis, Dark Lapis, Mystic Black.
And the Chessboard cut, as buttons, studs and decorative buttons. Oh, and by the way - this is hot - we will shortly have a new hand tool for applying these buttons and studs and snaps and other items so that you don't have to buy a $600 machine to apply them. (If you want a $600 machine to apply them, fine, let us know, but we're thinking that a hand tool that allows you to get started is more up your alley. If you launch into full fledged production mode - fine - we'll help you source the big machine!)
