The cupchain is half-full ... at BeadFX

s46721 Findings - SS 39 Empty Cupchain Bracelet - Bright Silver (1)
Half-full of sparkling ideas! Woohoo! Choose your own colour combos and make your own fabulous crystal rhinestone bracelet! Cupchain in 3 colours and 2 sizes, and earrings too! The two sizes are for size SS 29 stones, or SS 39 stones - and we have both of those too!
To assemble, just place the rhinestone s46622 Swarovski - Rhinestones - SS 39 Xirius Chaton (Article 1088) - Crystal Mahogany (1)in the cup, and fold over the prongs to hold it in place.

Use a flat metal tool, like a butter-knife or the handle of your tweezers to press the prong down into position! Easy peasy!
s46621 Swarovski - Rhinestones - SS 39 Xirius Chaton (Article 1088) - Sapphire Glacier Blue (1)And then pick your stones! You'll need 18 of the SS 29s for the SS 29 bracelet, or just 16 of the SS 39s for the SS 39 bracelet.

 
I had to restrain myself from making a whole bunch of these!
s26880 Stone Pendant - 40 x 50 mm Dancing Monks - Carved Lapis Lazuli (1)






Something else I had to exercise some restraint on this week ... Carved Stone Pendants! Serene Dancing Monks in Lapis, Dragon with World Pearl in Black Onyx (just to avoid confusion - there is no pearl - the image is of an Asian dragon holding up a round object, referred to as s46653 Stone Pendant - 30 x 40 mm Carved Dragon with Pearl - Black Onyx (1)a pearl - which represents the world. It's a very traditional image.) And how about this Coiled Dragon in Serpentine, which we have only one of, s46652 Stone Pendant - 30 x 40 mm Coiled Dragon - Serpentine (1)because I didn't resist. Not feeling dragony? How about this wonderful leaping hare carved in Golden Obsidian? Is that not s46651 Stone Pendant - 30 x 40 mm Carved Rabbit - Golden Obsidian (1)something else?







Or how about some Druzy s46656 Stone Beads - 12 mm Druzy Window - Blue (6)(or Drusy) beads! Druzys, (Druzies? - beats me) are naturally occurring crystals, like quartz or agate, that form in isolated pockets in the ground. They can be plain, or "jazzed up" by fuming precious metals onto them to produce s46657 Stone Beads -  Freeform Oval - Blue Druzy (1)rainbows of exquisite colours. We have some cabochons, and some beads - with druzy windows. Such fun! I really s46661 Stone Beads -  Free Form Oval - Natural Druzy (with Silver Plated Sides) (1)like these Natural Druzy beads with silver plated sides!
Lots of other cool new stone beads this week too - these - these amethyst rough chunks are particularly drool-worthy. s19570 Stone Beads -  Rough Chunks - Amethyst (1)















And these copper plated Hematite Skulls are just the thing for a skelly-ton-inspired pair of earrings - s46664 Stone Beads - 8 x 12 mm Skull - Copper Plated Hematite (1)just in time for the hollow-weenies!


I could blather on about the cool new stones all day, but you can check out all the new items here, or click on a link or image and hop directly to that item! Go forth and Bead Happy!
