Aren't these "unbearably" cute? These new "big-hole" beads have a super-sized 4 mm hole - which means that you can add them to the Euro-style charm-bracelets. Course - you can go way beyond too - adding them to leather, rattail cord, Silversilk knitted wire cable, and all sorts of other things where the stringing stuff is part of the design - where the medium is part of the message - so to speak!
For instance, check out Rae's inspiration this week - it was inspired by helping someone in the store who was interested in the Euro-style charm bracelets!
Other items with a big hole this week - although not actually big enough for the Euro-style bracelets - but still - pretty big - are Big Hole Pearls and Stone rondelles. These both have a 2.5 mm hole - still plenty large enough for 2 mm satin rattail, leather or whathaveyou. (As they are spread over different pages, here's a list with links!)

Other new stuff around the site - just look for the "new" tags. Oh, and you should check out this new book by Sherri Haab if you are at all interested in the Ice Resin and the things you can do with it. Not just cabs with images embedded, but full-blown casting and molds and stuff. I just got mine and I am so excited by the possibilities! Woohoo!
