You look just like a Christmas Tree ... except for being much smaller, and with a hole, and made of glass and often not green - okay - not really much like a Christmas tree.
But we are definitely all spiked up this week - with a plethora of pointed beads.
We have the oh-so-adorable 8 mm Baby Spikes, and the 18 mm Fat Spikes! And yes, a few new of the regular 17 mm spikes too.
We also have the slightly edgier Villa - Square Spikes. These are square in cross section (instead of round) and the hole is corner to corner - so that an edge is always presented at 90 degrees to the line of stringing. If that was confusing - just think of them as edgier. ;-)
If that's not Daggerous enough for you - we have more Daggers too - Serrated Daggers with a Toothy Edge.
And if you haven't gotten the point yet - well - let us be a thorn in your side with some Thorn beads. These are a tapered spike bead, just a little thicker in the middle than at the blunt end.
Vintage German CabochonsWe also have some great "new" vintage stuff - from a warehouse in the heart of the original costume jewelry manufacturing area in the U.S. - Rhode Island. Some of these are in stunningly good condition - as good as the day they were made.
For instance - these matte cabochons rival anything currently made for luminosity. These unicorn cabochons are definitely different with an iridescent unicorn on a jet-black background, with a clear dome over all.
Or how about these imitation Persian Turquoise Cabochons? Imitation Wedgewood cameos? Or this simulated carnelian hummingbird cameo?
Check them all out in the Cabochon department!
