New Pearls

We had a problem with our ISP and did not have access to the internet for a couple weeks.  Please accept our apologies for getting this month's newsletter out so late.

Well, try as I do to try to keep up with the anklets and watches, they池e usually sold as soon as they appear at the next craft show. Since the styles are still very popular, I致e been concentrating on having them in more sizes instead of designing new styles. I had a couple of new designs that were sold before I was able to place them on the website, so I値l work on more of those so that you can see them next month or at the next show in September.

I知 mostly caught up with the special orders except for a couple of items (you know who you are 穆till working on them) so I can now focus on the Fall and Winter line. The shell heishi and Hill Tribe silver necklaces were a big hit in July but, since the summer is nearing to an end, I知 not expecting much call for that in the upcoming months.

I went to a rock and mineral show last Friday and bought some beautiful materials that will be nice for the colder months and you値l see the stones in new designs in September. The pink opals from Peru and the malachite azurite are just beautiful 僕arge oval carved beads. There were also some faceted blue sapphires in a nice size of about a carat each that I found at the show at a very good price, so look for gemstone earrings with pearls and sapphires at a great price for the sapphires. I already made a lariat necklace with turquoise tubes and I値l have it at the Essex craft show tomorrow. When I saw those turquoise tubes, I was so impressed that I bought every strand the vendor had 釦hat will be about 10 necklaces or anklets. Too bad that particular rock and mineral show is only in the area once a year!!!

Your questions 電o you have this?, 田an you make that? continues to inspire me. Thank you so much. Keep it up!!
Stay tuned...
