Huge Moving SALE!

I am closing my main Etsy shop and moving all of my wire wrapped and beaded jewelry to my Artfire shop. Quite frankly the constant cycle of renewal is just not worth it anymore. I will simply be letting my items expire as they come up for renewal. In the meantime I am offereing 25% OFF and FREE SHIPPING on the entire shop. This is a great deal for you lol! and will make it easier for me as I hope to have less items to move over!

Go HERE for the sale!

Jewelery Supplies-My addiction

Well I have to say that one of my favorite things to do is shop for jewelry supplies. Its one of the reasons that I make so much jewelry lol! I have a never ending fascination with beads and findings. Wether it's glass beads, silver beads, copper, gold, polymer clay and even some of the vintage lucite (plastic) beads, I love them all. And then there are the precious and semi-precious beads in all their multitude of shapes, sizes, cut and sparkle! Top drilled, side drilled, cabs half drilled I can find a use for them all. Then there are toggle clasps, chain, spacer beads in a variety of finishes and shapes. If I bought everything I liked we would be homeless lol! Any way I though I would share one of my favorite supply shops withyou and encourage you to take a look and to give her beads a try. She has excellent quality at really reasonable prices. Go check her out! But don't blame me if you end up addicted lol! Her shop is BeadAllAboutIt.
