Everything's Coming Up Roses!

You guessed it! We received some lovely Rose Quartz in our most recent shipment. And, as you may have guessed by the music theme, I am still guest blogging for Jenny. Don't worry, she'll be back as soon as she's done saving the world. In the meantime, let's talk Rose Quartz!
These have the feel of Spring to me, with soft glowing pastels and subtle tones. They can be mixed with other pastels or strong jewel tones for great effects. And the price is right! 16" strands run:
4mm rounds: $8.00
6mm rounds: $9.00
8mm rounds: $18.00
10mm rounds: $11.00

I always love a bit of sparkle and these faceted rounds fit the bill perfectly! These would make great spacers and also mix well with pearls or amethyst. The options are endless!
4mm rounds: $16.00
6mm rounds: $15.00
8mm rounds: $18.00

Have I mentioned my fondness of rondelles? They are so versatile, and one of my favorite things to do is wire wrap them between lengths of chain. These slightly opaque Rose Quartz rondelles would be a natural with silver chain, and maybe even gunmetal!

So really, everything's coming up Rose Quartz! Come by any time to check it out in person, we're here every day with delicious cookies and friendly help with all your beading emergencies! And stay tuned, there's still more new beads to talk about.

Happy Beading!
