New Additions: Pewter, Gems & Artist LampworkPosted by Kevin on July 05 at 10:32 pm
I’m excited about the great selection of stuff we’re adding today! We have pewter beads that start at just 20 cents each, some very beautiful gemstone strands, and a ton of new artist lampwork glass.
This line of lead-free pewter beads is fantastic! They come in everything from small spacer beads to larger focal beads, they’re lightweight, and they won’t tarnish over time. Most are available by the piece, so you can buy exactly what you need. Large hole beads are available, which is good because these look fantastic with leather cord. I love the color of this pewter. It’s lighter than the other pewter beads we sell. It almost looks more like silver than pewter. See the entire line now!
If you’re looking to add some WOW factor to your summer designs, you’ll want to check out these gemstones. We’re adding the good stuff — stones like: apatite, kunzite, kyanite, the nicest lapis I’ve ever seen, malachite, pink opal, and more. These are all high-grade strands and the value is great.
Grace Lampwork Glass
We’re doubling the size of our Grace Lampwork selection. Self-taught lampworker Grace Ma made her first lampwork glass beads in October 2002. She insists on high-quality materials and consistency in her line of glass beads, and considers learning a “life-term job.” Grace Lampwork glass beads are annealed overnight for increased strength, and have wonderful character in the smallest details. Check out the new additions!
For all of our US based customers, I hope you had a wonderful 4th of July. It was over 100 degrees here in Michigan yesterday. Ali and I, for some reason, decided to take the kids to the zoo. It was a recipe for disaster, but turned out to be a great time!
