Sideways Cross- Here to stay or nay?

Monday, November 26th, 2012

Ever since the debut of the sideways cross, we have included a wide variety of sideways crosses in our store selection. Many of you had requested special colors and designs, some of which we obliged. Is this going to be one of those passing trends, or is it something that’s here to stay? What do you think? Yay or nay?

Think outside the box

Thursday, November 1st, 2012

We see many artisans coming in and out of the store daily. As they checkout their basket of glistening jewels, I like to guess what their finished product may look like. Sometimes, I have absolutely no idea and it makes me really curious to find out. Once, our beading instructor bought an odd collection of materials and random pieces. She later brought in a stunning piece of necklace that belongs in an art museum! Here’s one of her pendant. If you would like to learn how to make it, join us in our beading class!
