What's New?

Watch This Page!

As new items are added, we'll add links to this page so that you can click right to the
newest in beads, books and findings.  Since we usually get shipments every week,
this should be a hoppin' page. 

Combined 11o and 15o Delicas To make your ordering easier, we have combined our 11o and 15o Delica beads onto single pages based on the DB color number assigned by the factory.  We think it will be easier for you to see whether or not there is a matching 15o Delica by doing it in this fashion. 
May 2010 - Japanese 14o/15o Hex Seed Beads Yes, customers can make a difference.  Thanks to Rachel and Ellen, we have added the Opaque section of our 14o/15o hex beads .  These 66 beads are the beginning of our Japanese 14o/15o bead section and the colors are available in standard shape also, even though the standard shape is not live yet. 
July 2008 - 7mm Flower Cups In response to a customer request, while watching "Le Tour de France" working their way through the Alps, we quickly scanned and set up a page of our smaller flower cups.  Check out both sizes, the 9mm Flower Cups and the newer 7mm Flower Cups
June 2008 - Base Metal Chain by the Foot -
     Large Links
We've had an outstanding selection of base metal chain for months, but thought that our on-line shoppers might also want to share in these.  Among the chains available is the Large/Small Round Link Yoke Chain.  This chain was used in Sandi's Swarovski crystal and chain project in Bead & Button's special "Vintage Jewelry" edition published late in 2007. 
June 2008 - 15o Delica Beads The first shipment of these wonderfully accurate and teeny-tiny beads has arrived.  Take a look, buy a few.  You'll end up being as addicted to these small wonders as we were when we first saw them.  Perfectly wonderful in the colors and finishes that you've grown to love over the years and with the quality that Miyuki always puts into their Delica beads - these little beauties will be your favorite bead before you know it.

October 2004 - 28 New Delica Colors The final shipment of Delica colors arrived and are now on both in their appropriate number pages and on our New Delicas page.  I know the New Delicas page is very graphics intensive, but wanted to show all of you the total color array released this year.  So, be patient, it's well worth the wait for the download.
