Just in time for Cinco de Mayo! Sterling silver and cubic zirconia cocktail charms are in. Visit the Ideas section in our Learning Center for several quick and easy earring examples. They also make great wineglass charms or invitation charms; add them to scrapbooks or necklaces. These charms are colorful, versatile, and fun! To check them out, click on the photo to the right or go to Cocktail Charms in Sterling Silver Charms.

Our new Swarovski crystal bicone color is light olivine. This color is a beautiful addition to those spring green pieces everyone is so busy making! The Miyuki Delica section is still growing; we added ten more colors this week, and we are just getting started. For those people who can’t get enough of the Paula Radke dichroic glass beads, we have added the 15mm round cased color beads. The color in these beads is in the center with a clear glass coating on the outside. They are dazzling and iridescent, our favorite of the dichroic line yet! As if this isn’t enough, we also added five new Hill Tribe silver designs this week. The variety and quality is unmatched.

Q: I love the dichroic donut pendants that Artbeads.com sells, but can’t figure out how to attach them to a necklace. Can you give me any suggestions?

A: This week our staff designer made two quick and easy examples of how to attach a dichroic donut. For the small flecked donuts, our new oval jump rings will do the trick. For the larger ripple donuts, a simple loop in a satin or leather necklace is a great way to attach the pendant. If you are in need of an alternative, you can always use a wire-wrapped loop to connect the donuts to any type of chain or beading wire. Please visit the Ideas section of the Learning Center for detailed instructions on all of these ideas.
