Well - we are always about instant glam, and long slow glam that takes weeks to make, and every kind of glam in-between! However - this week - we are about Instant Glam(tm) by Fernando.
Instant Glam is an exclusive new line of bezels - custom designed and manufactured to work with the Swarovski Crystal Rock appliques.
Inspired by Tuscan architecture - these big, bold statement pieces can work as a focal piece, or an eye-catching part of an overall design.
Crystal Rocks - from Swarovski - are double-pointed chatons - attached to a clear mounting film - backed with their exclusive hot-fix adhesive.
Together - these can be combined into stunning statement pieces!
Apart - they are pretty darn cool too! The Instant Glam bezels can also be used for resin, polymer clay - or epoxy clay.
If you are feeling earthy instead of glamorous this week - we have - YAY - more Regaliz leather beads and findings in! Check out this Bypass Magnetic clasp! Kewel, eh? There is more of the 10 mm flat leather and findings too - if that is more to your taste, and a nifty leather cutter - for getting nice clean, square ends, and skullboy - in two more colours!
And - while not designed for the Regaliz (Licorice) Leather - guess what! These Hammered Tube Bails fit perfectly! Wowsers!
