An Affordable Alternative…

Tuesday, August 9th, 2011

Sometimes making jewelry gets expensive. Good tools, fluctuating silver prices, and the cost of classes can really add up. That’s why when we come across quality products that are more affordable we make sure and spread the word about them!

With the launch of our new website we have also added products from the new line of Tierra Cast. Tierra Cast focuses on manufacturing quality plated findings, and recently they released new designs and a new finish that we are excited about! They have added new charms and components to their silver, gold, and copper lines and they have introduced the black line, which opens up a lot of new design possibilities! Since all of Tierra Cast’s findings are plated they are much more wallet-friendly than standard sterling silver or gold products. Below you can see some of the new charms:

Here are some of the designs we created in our Tierra Cast Staff Development:


So pick up some Tierra Cast for your next weekend project, we can’t wait to see what you all come up with!
