It's Spring!

It's the first day of spring - although - in most parts of the country - you could hardly tell. Here - it's minus brrrrr and snowing. On top of the snow that it snowed last week. Or was it last year? It's all starting to brrrrrr-together.

s35328 Clasps - Hook and Eye -  Indonesian Dragon - Red Bronze (1)So what have we got for you this week to make you happy? Dragons! Dragons make me happy, s35332 Pendants -  Chinese Fire Dragon - Sterling Silver (1)anyway, and I'm sure at least some of you will agree!
This fabulous clasp, in both Red Bronze and Sterling Silver, would make any dragon-lover delirious, and if that doesn't do it, add on this pendant for the total dragony-package.

s35366 Stringing -  Regaliz Licorice Leather - Racing Green (Inch)If you are pining for spring, perhaps a quick spring-pick-me-up of a lovely s35358 Beads - Regaliz -  Wrapped Leaves - Antique Silver (1)new green Regaliz leather combined with leafy beads. Actually - quite a few new fabulous Regaliz beads!

Just slide these beads onto this fat and lucious leather, glue on a clasp, and you are good to go! The magnetic clasps, by the way, will stick to each other when you wear them, turning your bangles into more of a cuff look, which I think is pretty cool, actually.

s35367 Stringing - 10 mm Textured Flat Leather - Raven Python (Inch)As35377 Stringing - 5 mm Snakeskin Flat Leather - Dove Grey (Inch)nd if you'd like even MORE leather choices, check out the new 10 mm and 5 mm flat, textured leather. This has been pressed and printed to resemble snakeskin - although it is, in fact, cow leather.
And some new leather cord in 1.5 and 2 mm as well.
s35373 Stringing - 10 mm Studded Flat Leather - Silver / Black (Inch)Oo - and some with studs, too!

s35414 Book -  Contemporary Geometric Beadwork - by Kate McKinnon
And - for the seed beaders - you know who you are! - Kate McKinnon's new book, Contemporary Geometric Beadwork. Look for an instore event to celebrate this new orgy of seedbeadiness!

s35345 Stone Beads - 6 mm Round - New Brazilian Agate (strand)If the winter white ISN'T getting to you - and I have to admit - I rather like not having to mow the lawn or smack bugs - you might enjoy this new stone - New Brazilian Agate. It is creamy and brown and white and grey - the colour of elegance and sophistication - not old drifts of snow, if that's what you were thinking.

Alrighty - that's a wrap for this week.
