Goth grows up, and grunge goes glamorous. These are handmade (in India) - limited quantity pendants set with genuine diamonds - mostly cognac and chocolate diamonds. You will note that the diamonds are "mine-cut" - informally cut and do not necessarily dazzle, and those of you are students of cut stones will know that the warm brown and yellow hues are amongst the most common of diamonds. However - when is the last time you bought yourself a diamond pendant? These have a quiet sophistication that is very elegant - and whether you make something simple or elaborate - a gift, or for yourself - these are timeless.
And they look freakin' awesome paired with pearls.
Speaking of pearls - to go with your Glam Zombie look, we have some Cornflake Keishi and some big hole pearls. The funky and non-traditional shapes of the pearls and their connotations of tradition and elegance create a dynamic tension that lets you tell a story in your creations - about the old and the new - tradition and change, respect and rebellion - all tied together and in balance and opposition at the same time.
Continuing this theme of the marriage of grunge and glamour, goth and glitz, elegance and eeeeek!, we have hugely expanded our selection of the Swarovski patina effect. This coating effect (like AB - Aurora Borealis) is a permanent coating, and has a pattern reminiscent of torn, vintage lace. We have a wide variety of shapes, but to make it easy for you to find them, we have put them onto one page - Patina Vintage Lace - as well as distributing them into their various homes, hearts, pear drops, etc. These pendants are quietly elegant and surprisingly lovely when made up into jewelry.
Also new this week - more selection in the Pellet beads. These vertebraic-shaped beads snug into each other, or act as wonderful pivot points in fabulous soutache creations - their narrow waists creating a place for the soutache to sit.
Also new this week - custom and exclusive mixes! A dazzling selection of mixed beads - Firepolish and Pressed glass in eight more exciting colourways. This Victorian Story will fill you with Blue Desire. While you climb over the Sand Dunes in the Hawaii Heat, to get to Fire Mountain to visit the Fairy Queen and deliver her Ginger Snaps - you will think, "I want it All."
