Super COLORFUL lampwork bead and finding sets and more WING DINGS!

Hello friends!

If you havn't already snuk over to the shop while I was updating(since you may have noticed a pattern of me listing on Thursdays ;) now is your chance to see all of the fun new things I have added to the shop! I have just ONE set of glass headpins to offer(they won't be there long!) as the other was snatched up the second it was created. I am SUPER excited about my mixed bead and finding sets and some fun varieties of wing ding sets. You all have really been scooping up the wing dings so I wanted to make sure there were some more for your designing fun! One bright set, and a few fallish/earthy/jewely sets. This time around I have some shiny transparents for ya!

NEW IN THE SHOP....
"Wildberry"- lampwork glass droplet headpins on 24ga copper wire. As you can see there is a fantastic selection of pink and purple headpins for your designing. I try to leave the wires as long as I can so you all have lots of room to wrap, wrap WRAP those wires! Wire has been untreated to give it that antiqued tortured look.

I would suggest double wrapping the loop and doing a messy wire wrap for the most stability like the image below.
If you aren't sure how to do this wrap let me know if you would like a tutorial on it. I just borrowed my friends web cam and wondered if I could get a quick video clip tutorial going to demonstrate this.

Also if you would like suggestions to change the metal color of the headpin wire let me know and I will give you a break down for different colors(really shiny or black).
SPICE-"Raspberry Ink"- a super fun variety of some of my favorite beads and findings in pink, purple and lime green. Set includes: wing dings, glass head pins, flower button, ruffle flower focal, swirly spacers, rubber o's, aluminum jump rings, colored leather, and colored nylon cording!

Lots of fun shapes and findings to create something AMAZING!

Variety IS the "spice" of life, you know!

SPICE-"Cantelope Zest"-a super fun variety of some of my favorite beads and findings in coral, aqua, and lime green. Set includes: wing dings, glass head pins, flower button, ruffle flower focal, swirly spacers, rubber o's, aluminum jump rings, colored leather, and colored nylon cording!

I can't wait to see what you all come up with these fun sets and beads from your stash!
Another delicious close-up :D
Wing Dings- "Prism"- a delightful BRIGHT transparent and glitter selection of paddle beads! Yellow and orange are glittery(which isn't apparent in the picture)! Rainbowy goodness!

Wing Dings- "Sandy Bayou"- a lovely sampling of earthy greens and browns. Transparent, translucent and opaque.Wing Dings- "Jewels"- rich transparent jewel tones perfect for fall! Much darker than my normal bright color palette. Perfect for those of you that love this fantastic time of year with it's darker color palette :)

OMG! So were you as excited as me?! I am super stoked about today's offerings. I can't wait to see what you all create!

Speaking of creating, my package just arrived from My ELEMENTS so off I go to create myself! I am working on some more AMAZING jewelry designs for you all!

Stay tuned!

Have a fantastic fall day!

Much love,

Genea

I hear ya sista! I waited to sell something before I allowed myself to buy more beads ;)

I justified for it for a few reasons 1. It's a purchase for my business 2. I could finish 4 projects to sell :D
Sweet how you can justify a bead purchase right?! lol
