New This Week!

Shiny Glittery Update

s29043 Firepolish - 14 mm Faceted Coin - Topaz Blue Lustre (1)That's what the gals at the store packaging and processing this week's update have been calling it - "the shiny, glittery update" - so let's roll with that!

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 s29047 Firepolish - 11 mm Faceted Bicone Rondelle Rivoli - Hunter Green Celsian (strand 25)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.

s29054 Firepolish - 5 x 3 mm Faceted Donut Rondelles - Seafoam and Sand (Strand 50)Speaking of donuts - we have more of those too. These Sea and Sand donuts are classic - I love these. I really s29065 Firepolish - 5 x 3 mm Faceted Donut Rondelles - Geology (Strand 50)like the stoney-look donuts! These Geology donuts would qualify too! But your taste might run to more vibrant s29063 Firepolish - 5 x 3 mm Faceted Donut Rondelles - Pelecolours - like Pele's Orange Fire!

But - I'm going to LEAF it there - as we have other PRESSing s29026 Glass Leaves - 7 x 12 mm Leaf - Apollo (25)matters to attend to. As a matter of fact, we s29028 Glass Flowers - 20 mm Fairy Flower - Chestnut Peacock (1)have pressed glass leaves! And Flowers!

s29030 Glass Daggers - 5 x 16 mm Dagger Beads - Matte Artemis (20)And Daggers! All with Spots! Iridescent metallic rainbow oil-slick-on-s29037 Glass Daggers - 7 x 14 mm Necktie Beads - Hephaestus (15)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?

s28991 Stone Beads - 30 x 60 mm Rectangle Pendant - Mediterrean Blue II Impression Jasper (1)In case all these literary references are making you s28993 Stone Beads - 55 mm Keystone Pendant - Green Impression Jasper (1)glassy-eyed - we have some stoney issues to cover. Stone Pendants, as a matter of fact! These big, big Impression Jasper pendants are big, s28997 Stone Beads - 55 mm Keystone Pendant - Seafoam Lace Agate (1)bold and decidedly beautiful! Or how about this Seafoam Lace Agate. Is that colour s29006 Stone - 70 mm Teardrop - Black Lace Agate (1)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.

s29017 Stone Beads - 10 mm Faceted Round - Angelite (strand)s29020 Stone Beads -  Mixed Hex and Donut - Angelite (strand)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!

Firepolish, Pressed Glass, Swarovski Crystal, Seedbeads, Stone and Pearls, Preciosa Crystal, Metal Beads, Other Cool Beads, Findings, Metal Clay & Supplies or Books, Kits, Tools.

I stopped in at BeadFX today and saw the hex/donut Angelite stones. Gorgeous! I'm now trying to come up with a plan to justify another spending spree.
