New Products
Last Friday was a huge day for new product at Artbeads.com. In addition to the Paula Radke donut, we introduced 14 new styles of semi-precious gemstones! We added a whole new line of rhodonite, as well as expanded our red poppy jasper, garnet, orange aventurine, mookaite and yellow aragonite. We also added to our freshwater pearl line with seven new pearl styles. Both our pearls and gemstones are sold by the strand at extremely reasonable prices. We brought on five new sterling silver bead frames in fun styles. To help take care of your silver we are introducing anti-tarnish carbon strips. Simply slip these strips into your bags and drawers where you store your silver and they will absorb excess moisture and other harmful elements, to slow the tarnishing of your silver. Finally, we added a trendy, fun leather-encased metal cuff bracelet. This bracelet can be easily embellished with Swarovski flatbacks. For an example, see the Fun and Funky Leather Cuff in the Ideas section of the Learning Center. The Swarovski company recommends the use of a two-part epoxy glue, so we added that in two dry times as well. Be sure to visit the New Products section of the web site to check out all of these wonderful products.

Q: What is the best epoxy for my project?

A: Artbeads.com currently offers two different two-part epoxy adhesives. One has a one-hour dry time, the other is five minutes. Both glues come in a syringe pack that squeezes out two even lines at the same time. We recommend placing a small amount on an index card and then mixing just a bit with a toothpick as needed. The glue is not activated until it is mixed, and will not start drying until activated. The five minute and one-hour titles refer to drying times. While the five-minute may be more inviting, we only recommend this for small, simple projects, or more advanced designers. The biggest concern with a fast dry time is that if you need to move something you may not be able to. The one-hour is fairly versatile and most designers find it adequate for their projects. Remember, all epoxies have extremely strong fumes. Always use in a well ventilated area. You can find epoxy in the Adhesives section of Tools and Supplies on our web site.
