Faux Suede Lace

We have a very large new collection of Faux Suede lace.

Every colour is so pleasing!

They are available in spools or retail ready packages.

The Faux Suede tassels match perfectly!

Fernando Dasilva made this gorgeous set to showcase the tassels.

Bead Style also featured this necklace by Fernando in the March 2014 issue.

Day of The Dead Ornament

Okay, not every ornament has to have a traditional white, green and red Christmas theme.  Many people use ornaments at different times of the year and I could not help but think that this one would be a fun one for anyone celebrating Day of the Dead…or perhaps you just has a good sense of humour.

What makes these ornaments so easy to craft are the snowflake frames in the John Bead catalog.  I used our semi precious skull beads 10mm with some brightly coloured wood beads.  The yellow tassel was just the perfect finishing touch!

All you have to do is load your beads in a pleasing arrangement and twist the end of your wire frame to keep them in place.

It looks just beautiful on my tree!

Wondering What To Do With a Tassel?

Our Dazzle-it product line has a special blog hop today featuring the work of many fabulous jewelers, crafters and designers!

Our new Faux Suede Tassels are the stars of this blog hop!

All the designer/artists in this blog hop received a “Dazzle-it Blog Hop Kit.” Each of the individual Dazzle-it colours was sent to one designer so they may have had white, yellow, green or even hot pink.  They did not get to choose their main colour, it was randomly shipped.  They were given an assortment of tassels, but I asked them to try and focus on using the one special colour set in their kit.

  

We could not resist sending the matching Faux Suede Lace cording when we planned this hop. The colour options are just wonderful!   The designers also received several different new closures and clasps which I will be featuring in additional posts next month!

You’ll find a huge collection of inspired projects by heading over to the Dazzle-it blog!
