Inspiration: Bead and Button

One of Stash's 'every other Friday' regulars is Donna Glaze. She always brings her latest bead project to share. Today she wowed us with her version of Bead and Button's (October 2012) Marjan by Riana Olckers. Thanks to Donna for some big inspiration today!! (love those 457s!)

Rustic Russian Class

At the end of this morning's Rustic Russian class, we got most of the students' little 'blobs' together for a starter portrait. I hope to see all of these when they are completed. Each one is a delightful reflection of the person who made it. One pattern: endless color combinations. Great work, everyone!


Today Stash hosted a birthday party of six girls. They chose the jump ring bracelet as their project and look what a wonderful job they did! Happy birthday, Ariel!

Juicies: 2/0 Magic Beads

Our Bead of the Month is a sweet collection of size 2/0 Rocailles that are perfect for making this quick and easy Jump Ring Bracelet. These beads are plump with color and ripe for picking! Come in and choose your favorite: Lime, Flame, Raspberry or Amber.

We also have more jump rings, including some new 4mm that are great for making some 'baby' versions of the jump ring bracelet.
