What a Year It's Been!

It's hard to believe that 2012 is almost over.
And what a year it has been at beadFX!

There was THE MOVE to end all moves. All those beads and goodies that were packed up, moved over and unpacked. It was really a group effort and wild when you realize that the store was closed for less than a week!

Then there was the inventory of every single item in the store....that was quite the job and a big thank you to everyone who came out and helped with that endeavour.

The new store, for those of you who haven't been in to see it, is about three to four times bigger than the old store. There is a room full of Japanese beads - Miyuki and Toho's - and all sorts of stringing materials and needles to go with the beads. And of course the Kumihimo disks and accessories are there too.

There is another room filled to the brim with Swarovski crystal beads and pendants, pearls, hotfix and flatbacks, chatons and rivolis and oodles more. I keep thinking we need to hand out sunglasses when you enter that area.

The beautiful classroom, the metal working studio and the lampwork studio. The trifecta of learning rooms at beadFX.

So much bright light infuses the store, from the moment you step inside.

There are glass cases filled with samples of projects to be made in the many class offerings on the calendar.

There are also glass cases showcasing the latest trends in the industry and what new products beadFX has to offer.

There are many cases filled with beautiful jewellery from the Inspirations that are posted every week.

There are so many more books available in the two huge book racks that are new to the store.

There are also tables full of artisan made lampwork for you to drool over and of course, buy to make something special from.

On the social media front, we have a very active Facebook page where we are always teasing you with photos of to die for/must have/can't live without items. We hope that you will like our page and post photos of your work using items you have purchased from us. Here is the link to our page:

We also have a Pinterest page - have you been caught up in the Pinterest craze yet? You can lost for hours in this realm of virtual bulletin boards. You can follow us here ----->

We have lots planned for 2013.... lots of exciting, sparkling goodies and events. Book signings, staff appearing in magazines, "celebrity" teachers from near and far.

From our beadFX family to yours, we will you a 2013 filled with lots of sparkle, health, happiness and of course beads.
