Summertime, and the beading is easy
Butterfly beads, slide onto leather so fine
Rich new colours, in flat and round leather
So hush, little darlin' - you'll make a great design!
It's summer - the weather is what you were wishing for in February - time to relax and Be Creative!
If your taste is currently running to "instant gratification" - then you are in luck - as we got you more of the leather and findings and beads to go with it!
For instance - these butterfly beads are a design tour de force - super attractive from either side, and the "open" side can certainly leave you wondering - how does it stay on there?
Also in the "that's so cool" category are these Simulated Buckle clasps. They are all metal but designed to look like
buckled leather when fastened.
These Double Wide clasps take two pieces of 10 mm flat leather, or four pieces of 5 mm, or one 10 and two fives, so now you don't have to choose just a single colour! Speaking of colour - this new turquoise is simply delish!
So check out the Leather Supplies and see what speaks to you! Oh, and btw, did you notice we added little icons on the site so you could find the new stuff more easily? ;-)
If your idea of summertime beading involves long slow projects that last for weeks, then you will be happy that we have still more choices in Japanese seedbeads! Delica 8/0s - for instance, or, if you prefer, Toho 8/0 Hexagons!
Also Toho 8/0s and 11/0 round seedbeads! And a couple of Toho 15/0 seedbeads in nice metallics!
So - instant gratification or detailed anticipation - the choice is yours!
Don't forget - on sale this week - beading cable (wire) - Softflex, Econoflex, or Beadalon. Stock up on your favourite or make this an opportunity to try something new!
