I’ve never seen anything like the color in these breath-taking sets of crystals.  It is hard to do them justice with the pictures.  You can see the nice selection of strands in the Beads category and we have some of the finished necklaces in the Jewelry category.  The necklaces shown above were so easy to make.  Simply string, clasp, and wear!  They don’t need anything else to make them into a piece of jewelry that will get many ooohs and aaaahs.  They also feel so nice on your neck.

 

Looking for Hill Tribe Silver?

If you weren’t looking for Hill Tribe before now, better run fast in the other direction! I recently became a huge fan of Hill Tribe silver, so you guessed it! Had to have some! But I can’t keep it ALL to myself, so have a look. It’s listed under the “Beads” category on the left side of the home page.

 

Ooooh, Swarovski Crystals!

Whoa, having a store is so much fun! I found these Swarovski crystal mixes and couldn’t wait to put them in the store (look under the “Beads” category). I have been making some crocheted wire necklaces with them and they really add the sparkle. I have the same beautiful mixes in faceted round 4mm Czech glass, but I will have to add them to the store another night.

Back on the subject of the crocheted wire necklaces, I should have these kits ready to add to the store soon. The tutorial is finished and many of the kits are already put together. However, each kit is different, so it may take some time to figure out how to list them. I love a challenge, so this will keep my brain happily problem-solving for awhile.
