New Natural Stone Trunk Show

We promised trunk shows when we moved into this new, BIG location, so now we’ve already got our second one set up and ready for shopping! This one is a little different than the last; this is all beautiful strands of stones and it’s a smaller show that will stay set up here for you to shop until November 24. Some of the styles were already disappearing as soon as we started to put them out today though, so come soon for the best selection!

Intermediate Class: Rag Rug Peyote Bracelet
This is called “rag rug peyote” because when the bracelet is finished it looks an awful lot like a rag rug, doesn’t it? It’s a fun, very free-form technique where you’ll use a variety of beads in various counts to create this look.
