And Ultra Orange, and Ultra Lime! And Ultra Purple! Together - these Four Caped Crusaders of colour battle boring combos, dull designs and the Blahs.
Blammo! Zap! Caaaa-runch. Another evil villain from Dullsville is defeated and sent to Design School - where they will be rehabilitated and released - never more to menace society with somber greys and sedate designs!
And - let's not forget the faithful sidekick - without who, nothing gets done! In this case - Best Supporting Actor goes to these open channel Rivoli Mounts.
Because, as absolutely awesome as these Rivoli stones are - and they truly put the "I-want-some" in Awesome - you then think to yourself - how do I use them?
You can, of course, seedbead around them to make stunning bezels - I admire those who can do that! But some of you are more of the instant-gratification sort (me too!) and can only dream of having enough time and patience to bead around a rivoli!
And just for you, my friends, we have these new channel mounts! If you want to see them in action (of course you do!) - check out this week's inspiration: Pink Cotton Candy!
And that's not all that is new and innovative this week. Because, we have the start of the Revolving or Swivel Findings! These are hook and eye clasps with a swivel base, so that they will always lay flat, always rotate into the best position, and always be more comfortable and convenient for you! In three colours so far, Brass, Copper, and Silver.
Lots more to come in these too - they are currently being photo'd and processed - but there will be swivel end-caps and more to come in the weeks ahead - so stay tuned! Ooo - the products I've seen! You would not believe the wonderful things coming this summer!
And don't forget - this is a new month - so a new Stone of the Month! This month is Green Aventurine! This misty, translucent green stone is such a soft, calm green - it might almost make up for the crispy brown that your lawn is turning!
Lots more to explore - and more wonderful stuff in the weeks ahead! Don't delay! Click on a link (or a picture) above, or start with the Main Page and look for the "New" tags.
