New! Sterling silver endless hoops
Endless Hoops, or Beading Hoops, are perfect for hoop earrings, chandelier earrings or wineglass charms. One end is flattened with a hole in it to hook the other end into. After sliding your beads on, bend the last quarter inch of the plain end up to make a hook. It's as simple as that! To purchase, click on the photo to the right or go to the Silver Components section of the web site and click on Hoop and Chandelier Earrings.

Silver prices holding steady
In our previous newsletter, we announced that we would be raising prices on our sterling silver products due to surging silver prices. While we did begin to raise prices on some of our lowest profit-margin items, the fact that silver prices appear to have stabilized over the past week has allowed us to slow the pace of scheduled price increases until the trend in silver prices becomes more clear.

Q. How do I use a beadtip with Soft Flex-type stringing material?

A: Beadtips are designed for use with thread and cord, and are not usually used with nylon-coated steel stringing materials. The reason is that materials like Soft Flex and Beadalon stringing wire don't knot very easily, which is why we recommend that for the most secure finish you use crimp tubes or beads with them. If you want the look of a beadtip, the best way to go about it is to string on the beadtip, and crimp the wire inside it to keep it from slipping out. Using a dab of glue, like GS-Hypo, (find in our Bead Tools & Supplies section) can also help keep it more secure. To read more FAQs go to the FAQs section of the web site or click below.
