Primitive Finds

If you get our emails then you already know that the largest shipment of the year is in! This is the first of a series of entries that I'll post over the next week to show you some of the neat things we received. I'll try to cover everything...but there's soooo much you should just come in and visit.
Check out these new primitive finds...

We've had these fossil ammonites before in set pendants, but not in beads. Ammonites, for those not familiar, are an extinct group of marine invertebrate animals that are closely related to present day squid, cuttlefish and nautilus.
Full strands are $47 each, singles are also available

Petrified wood in two styles, large organic slices and large faceted drops. Petrified wood occurs when all the organic materials in the wood are replaced by minerals (most commonly silica).
Full strands of the organic slices are $28 (only two strands left!)
Full strands of the faceted drops are $29
Singles are available in both

Shark teeth are back! We've got two varieties this time. Large pieces are $10 each and small (with wire bails) are $1 each.

Banded agate in pendants and strands. The pendants are especially striking with very defined stripes and designs. Pendants are $6 each and full strands are $31 each.

Check out the size of these! I can already see the concern in your faces but fear not, these are not beads. These gorgeous decorative spheres are made of a type of Gypsum known as Selenite and have a beautiful cats eye effect. These turned out to be an instant employee favorite. At only $10 each, I'm sure they'll be gone soon.

See you soon!
