No Stamping on the Dragon Toes

For thou art crunchy and taste good with ketchup.
s38673 Glass -  Dragons Claws - Matte Hot Chili Pepper (25)We just can't emphasize enough, what a bad idea stamping on dragon toes would be. Mostly s38677 Glass -  Dragon Toes - Lapis Blue (30)because our dragon toes are made of glass - and it would get crunchy indeed, pretty fast.
Aren't these just the coolest? The dragon Claws are a little pointier, and the dragon Toes are a little more rounded at the end.
s38671 Pressed Glass - 13 x 18 mm Phases of the Moon Oval - Toasted Nut (10)Someone has, however, been stamping on the glass, and we do have some very nice pressed glass s38664 Pressed Glass - 20 mm Flame Coins - Old Lava (1)with patterns pressed into the glass - when it is still hot and molten. We have these 3 dot phases of the moon (looks more like traffic light to me!) shape, and a wild and funky flame-lke pattern, and these yummy dragonfly coins, and these fun flower starburst beads! They are all collected here on our Carved Glass page.
s38659 Flat Cut Tablet - 11 x 14 mm Starburst Oval - Blue Epoch (10)
s38666 Pressed Glass - 23 mm Dragonfly Coin - Green Grape Mist (1)













Lots of fun new glass beads this week - but I also want to show you that if you are determined to go stamping around on something - how about some metal stamps?

s39267 ImpressArt Stamps - 4 mm Stamp/Punch Collection - Jeanie - UPPERCASE Letters (Set)We've brought in a new line of stamps from ImpressArt. These are top quality steel stamps, in a nice case with a clear top for easy viewing and the letter that is on the stamp on the side as well - so you s39278 ImpressArt Stamps - 6 mm Design Stamp/Punch - Paw Print (1)know what you have picked up and which way to hold it! We have some fun new fonts, number series as well - and some other fun embellishments.








s38791 Stone Beads - 5 x 7 mm Tumbled Nuggets - Garnet (strand)Wow - so much new good stuff this week! Garnet - if you love this sultry red stone with it's slightly metallic lustre - we have a bunch of it that we scooped in Tucson (we just don't see nice garnet from suppliers up here.) This stone is rich and dark and looks killer with black or gunmetal for a totally kick-butt goth look. Garnet was big in Victorian and Bohemian jewelry too.






 
s38801 Glass Beads - 5 x 16 mm Thorns - Cobalt (strand 25)
And - around and back to the glass beads for a moment, if I may - these are another new shape - these are Thorns - more rounded than dagger beads. These are from Preciosa-Ornela and they have some fun patterns for using them.



 



s38814 Metallic Hematite - 4 mm Square Washer - Matte Metallic Purple IrisSo much good stuff - I'm sure you're TL; DR by now - but check these out, Square Washers - 4 mm square - made of metallic Hematite! I think these would look awesome integrated into a bead weaving project!


Ok - I'll shut up now so you can go check it all out! As always - you can click on a link or image above, or get started with all the new items here. Happy Shopping!
