... we have more colours of TILA beads. Twenty-Seven new colours, as a matter of fact. I was just doing a little googling to see what everyone is doing with these, and found a wonderful gallery on Pinterest. Wow - what awesome creations! What creative minds!
These Opaque Metallic Bright Gold ones just scream to be made into something inspired by Egyptian tombs and mummies and Tutankhamen and royalty, yes?
And while we're on the topics of Japanese beads - because the TILA beads are made by Miyuki, which also makes the Fringe Drops, 4 mm Cubes, size 15/0 seedbeads, size 11/0 seedbeads, the Magatamas, and also thread and crochet thread, because I suppose, if you make and sell beads, it makes sense to make and sell thread to go with them.
Oops - got sidetracked there - didn't realize that we had so many diverse products from Miyuki - anyway - we are now adding another world-famous Japanese bead manufacturer to our line up. We already have an extensive selection beads from Miyuki and Toho and now we are adding Matsuno 11/0 seed beads as well. These are "compatible" with the Miyuki 11/0 seedbeads, and are on the same page.
These expand the already extensive line of colours! Especially as they have some very interesting colour-lined combos, such are Emerald Forest and Blackberry Brandy and Lime Pumpkin.
And it as it appears to be a seed-beady day - how about some new colours of the SuperDuo Twins? Some Fall colours like Orange Picasso and Yellow Picasso? (Picasso is the "earthy" finish that makes these beads look antiqued!) Or more oceany colours, like Green Turquoise Silver Picasso, or Transparent Aqua Picasso.
Oops - and almost forgot AGAIN! Last week we LOWERED the prices on our Regaliz licorice leather and beads that fit on it! And I was so excited about the Soutache that I forgot to mention it - sorry about that folks!
So, as always, wonderful, wonderful new things - all over the site. I leave you to explore at your leisure. Click on a link or an image to go straight to the item mentioned above, or go to our massive list of everything and look for the "new" tags.
