Who gives a hoot?
Don't let folks bug you. ;-)
You don't need to give a flying ... eagle-headed, body and tail of a lion - wait - that's a GRIFFIN. Or a Griffon. Attach this to your entrance and it would be - wait for it - a Griffin-door.
Some great new metal components this week - I swear the bicycle charm looks like someone is laying on their back with their feet in the air balancing another tire on their chest.
I'm really looking forward to what I can do with this Lace Doily Ring. It's adjustable, so one size fits many. I don't believe in "one-size-fits-all" - but it will adjust to fit at least one finger on most humans. If you're shopping and you're on an alien planet - well - all I can say is ... shipping is going to take awhile. ;-)
I'm eyeing this stacked flowers component and thinking about it with a nice flat bead in the center, and then the whole thing glued or wired onto the lacy doily ring. Just trying to thing of what the perfect bead to put in the middle would be.
Anyway - check out the new brass and copper components on the Vintage-Look page.
And the new metals charms on the Metal Charms page. Like this Snowflake Charm/Pendant - which - at this rate, might be the only snow we see for the season here.
New in the Findings department - for multi-strand bracelets - Check out these D-Rings and toggle bars. Also available in a slotted D-Ring - great for small loomed or bead-weaving projects - anything strap-like.
