January 16 4mm Czech Fire Polished Beads
Spotlight on New Beads + Finishes
The Aqua AB/Graphite is a new addition. Shown on left made into a SQK Bracelet Trio Design 3, along with Crystal AB Argento, and Magic Vitrail.
These three bracelets put the spotlight on these amazing finishes with AB finishes over transparent beads and partial metallic luster or partial metallic coating. These beads are super luminescent as light goes through the transparent beads and reflects back from the metallic finish, reminiscent of illuminated stained glass windows.
New Year - New Beads
6mm Czech Fire Polished Beads Available in 3 finishes: Etched Vitrail, Etched Argento, and Etched Gold Ore.
Shown set in Halo Beads as charms.
The fully etched metallic finishes of these beads are amazing. I did not think I would like damaged beads... But wow, I am entranced by their raw look, especially when contrasted with the clean look of the Halo Beads.

The 2020 Neutrals
Versatile and naturally sophisticated, these neutral hues serve as singular color statements or as foundations for playful color contrasts with the other fashion colors of the year.
I am always surprised when several customers from different part of the country order the same exact colors, the same exact day... Is is serendipity or did they read a post somewhere recommending specific colors?
