Handmade Chain close-ups

Posted by Steve on April 16 at 10:11 am

Yesterday, we officially announced our exclusive line of Handmade Chain. It’s a collection of big, funky chain styles that will be available in several metals (starting with antique copper). It’s awesome in person, and we know that sometimes it’s hard to get a feel for a product when you’re just looking at pictures online. So, I wanted to tell you about 2 things that we’re doing that we hope will make this experience better and more enjoyable!

1. We’re going to start showing all chain using wide pictures that let you see the pattern better. Right now, all the Handmade Chain pictures are like this, and we’re going to be transitioning all our chain pictures shortly to this new format. We think it’s going to be a whole lot easier to get an idea of what the chain will look like in your hands (or on your neck!)

2. We’ve added a cool zoom feature that allows you to get a close-up on the chain when you’re shopping. Just move your mouse over the Handmade Chain pictures and you’ll get a close-up that moves along with your mouse. Right now, this is only available for the Handmade Chain, but will soon be available for the other chain, too!

That’s it! We hope these small things making shopping a whole lot better. Check it out, and let us know your feedback in the comments!

    Steve, these new features are VERY helpful, as is the “show rulers” feature after you click on a particular design of chain. Thanks for all the help you give us with these great tools!!! You & the LB Team continue to “rock” our beading world!!! :D

    Oh — and the new line of chain is awesome, too! 8)

    I love the zoom feature. It is so helpful. It’s better than a magnifying glass. Love the new chain too! It is beautiful! Thanks for continuing to make this site the BEST bead site in the www.

    Hey, how about a feature that automatically adds $100 a month to our bank accounts to be used as bead money only?? LOL
