Shiny Glittery Update
What is making this update all shiny-glittery is that we have a bunch of new faceted firepolish beads for you! We don't see much "new" firepolish these days because, er, well - we already pretty much have it all. Not sure if I'm proud that our selection is so comprehensive, or slightly embarrassed that we are so overwhelmingly obsessive about getting it all!
On our Fancy Firepolish page - we have a selection of these short, fat bicones that look sort of like rivolis, but with a centre hole - like sharpened donuts. Or little flying saucers. And a few other odds 'n' ends too.
Speaking of donuts - we have more of those too. These Sea and Sand donuts are classic - I love these. I really like the stoney-look donuts! These Geology donuts would qualify too! But your taste might run to more vibrant colours - like Pele's Orange Fire!
And Daggers! All with Spots! Iridescent metallic rainbow oil-slick-on-a-puddle dots and dashes beat out a funky rhythm on a selection of beads daggers and neckties - which are sort of fattish daggers. Do not get me started on the symbolism of the dagger-shaped necktie as a standard part of the male business attire. Don't even go there - suffice it to say - when the 11th doctor of Doctor Who proclaims "bow ties are cool" - he may be onto a much bigger message. Anyway - we have these in cool colours, like this Hera's Peacock, and smokin' hot colours, like Hephaestus. (HA-fess-tus - the Greek god of fire and metal smithing. Hmmm - he'd feel right at home in our studio!) Or how about these soft blue daggers with triangles on them - flocks of doves, or just really cool pajamas?
In case all these literary references are making you glassy-eyed - we have some stoney issues to cover. Stone Pendants, as a matter of fact! These big, big Impression Jasper pendants are big, bold and decidedly beautiful! Or how about this Seafoam Lace Agate. Is that colour not sublime? We also have some one-of-a-kind pendants that are big, big, big. We have some more instore - but we put a few online because we know that for most of you - coming to the store in person maybe be something you want to do - but distance prevents.
Oh, and do you remember a translucent, soft turquoise stone we had a while back - called Angelite? Well - we have MORE! So pretty!
Don't forget - this coming Monday is Victoria Day - so the bricks and mortar store will be closed, but as always, our faithful robot computers will be standing by, ready to take your online orders! In these parts - this upcoming weekend is THE big weekend for planting and gardening - it's the first weekend that is considered to be frost-free. Everything around here is running late this year. Well-watered, but late. So - if it's too cold and wet to be in the garden - well - you know your beads are waiting patiently for you to come and keep them company!
