New Shapes, New Colors, New Sizes

They're finally up -- See all 15 new items in 3 great shapes! These new colors were an experiment from the glass factory and may never be produced again.

Try out the new curvy leaf shape or go abstract with the vintage styled 17/11mm flat twists. Perfect for Earrings, pendants and other dangles!

Another new addition to our catalog are our 5mm Mini Melons:
Now one of our most popular pressed bead shapes is available miniaturized! Enjoy working with the 8mm Melons? Have fun shrinking down some of your designs to a whole new level. We've got a great selection to start with plenty more to come! In stock now are some of today's most popular colors that coordinate nicely with the larger melons, which have a newly expanded selection as well.

Saturated With Color, Surrounded by Beads

We unexpectedly received our latest ocean container full of beads bright and early this morning! We usually get a heads up from the trucking company but were pleasantly surprised nevertheless. We've been busy digging through the boxes and organizing all the new styles as well as the many restock items. Be sure to watch as we add plenty of new items to our catalog including 5mm & 8mm Melon Rounds, HurriCane Glass, Polished Rectangles, Dagger beads and much much more!

Here are some of the beads I was able to photograph and activate right away. This non-facetted briolette shape is a staff favorite because of the way it amplifies and distorts the colors in the glass. The opaque colored beads are impressive as well because of their natural stone look. The beads in the pictures below are bunched together, but if you take a look at our website stock photos you can see how the colors change with more light shining through their wide surfaces.
