Back to Business
We are BACK - back to business as (more or less) usual. The new store is open - the showroom is ... dazzling - and it's not even finished yet!
Check this out! Check out this fabulous new fancy chain that we found when we were in New York last month!
Actually - a whole whack of cool chains! We have Leafy, in Copper and Gunmetal, or if the stars aren't out tonight - you can wear your own with this Celestian Star Charm Chain (ok - say THAT three times fast.)
Or how about this 3 in 1 - three fine chains joined by a bead every inch or so. Or this Foxtail chain - (note - the grooves on the wire on this chain make it a little rough in your hand.)
Or this Loopy Charm chain (if you love our Sterling Frothy Chain, but need CPR everytime you look at the price - you can get really excited about the Loopy Charm chain!)
This heavy, matte-finished Rolo Chain is my personal fave of this lot - it has weight, substance, and drama. I'm really looking forward to using this!
Now HERE'S something you don't see every day - shoe clips.This nifty little finding is sort of like a clip-on earring on steroids. It has a much stronger spring, and teeth for gripping (if you put in on an ear - you would damage yourself!) The idea is that you make your decoration, bow, rhinestone, wired whathaveyou, and clip into onto the front of your shoes. It can be clipped off for casual, swapped to different shoes, and salvaged when you wear the shoes out. You can make your toes twinkle, wear bells on your toes, or even toe the line. ;-)
Other cool stuffs - When Jen was hunting for inspiration for her partridge-in-a-pear-tree earrings - she could have used these! It's a pendant or earring (large, but very light!) - with a pastoral scene of a tree on a farm! Dangle crystals or beads off the 5 loops on the bottom. We have them in goldtone, silvertone, and copper. She's getting all Valentiney - so check out her new inspiration!
Or, picture this - the Three Stooges. (bear with me). The mean dude asks the third dude to pass him a snake. He reaches into a barrel and pulls one out and says - in the weird squeaky accent with the giggle on the end of every sentence - "Soipently, nyuk nyuk nyuk."I present, for your enjoyment - the Soipently clasp.
And if you conclude from that, that I am a basket case (not an altogether invalid conclusion) - you can celebrate that discovery with these knitted basket-like big hole beads! (Just call me the queen of the segue.)
Other assorted goodies, like magnetic bayonet clasps for leather, chain, or ribbon. Or a Bezeled flower - fill with epoxy clay and encrust with rhinestones. Or this key charm - also with a bezel for a stone, or not, if you just want to go with the plain key.
And a whole whack of new magazines, so you have lots of ideas for new projects.
