August 2013

In Uncategorized on August 2, 2013 at 3:40 am

August, what can you say – we are half way through the summer so is the glass half full or half empty?  Well being an optimist my glass is half full and that means we still have more fun activities and beading adventures to come. 

Hear is what Bead Rock Store/Studio has in store for us ~

Orphan Beads (left over beads) are perfect for our new “Multi Bead or Stone Wire Wraps.  This is a new technique that incorporates several beads for a signature look.  Makes beautifully into pendants, earrings, rings, or focal piece for a necklace or bracelet.  This new wire wrap is versatile and fun to make.  Endless possibilities’
