They keep inventing new shapes.
Because I think they think that we think that there aren't enough bead shapes.
What do you think they will think of next?
These are made by Preciosa-Ornela in Czech Republic, and are a bongo-drum shape with wide ends and a narrow waist (unlike - ahem - some of us!). While they look really cool strung side by side - I think the most interesting use of them will be in seedbead and small bead creations.
However, some places call them Soutache beads - which makes one think that narrow waist might lend itself very nicely to the whole soutache stitchery thing. You decide!
And we have a whole bunch of them - so Czech them out! (heh, heh.)
More Swarovski Coin PearlsGosh - these are lovely. How can you resist these? You can't - you know you can't.
Holiday ClosingWe will be closing early Christmas eve, at 3 p.m. on Dec. 24th. We will be closed over the final week of the year, between Christmas and New Year's, and re-opening on our normal schedule on Jan 2, 2014.*
As usual, our trusty computers will be standing by to take your online orders over the holidays. We hope you have a wonderful holiday season - and that you find lots of time to do the things you love!
*This does mean that there will be no new product updates for the next two weeks. However, our rotating weekly sales will continue!
Merry Christmas to all!
