I can't wait for you to check out my new stock! I had a wonderfully productive winter, creating 50 (!) new bracelet designs. I had the time to dig deep into my bead collection and to work with the gemstones, crystals and glass beads I'd been saving until I had the right inspiration and components.
I have vintage beads. . . unique cloisonne shapes. . . fun shell beads. . . three new Swarovski designs, featuring new colors--scarabaeus green, yellow opal, and pearlescent white. . . rich gemstones: blue tigereye, pink quartz, Kamsaba jasper, and others. . . natural wooden cubes and rounds. . . rose-goldish copper. . . and, of course, sparkle in pastels, vibrant shades and classic black.
Best of all, the craft show season is nearly upon us. Soon I'll get to catch up with my beadfriends from previous years and even make some new converts. Please stop by the Astrachan Artistry booth whenever you're at one of the shows listed on our 2017 schedule.
I have so much to show you!
