New Online Catalog and PDF

Our new products supplement is available for John Bead Corp. customers to download as PDF or view online!  The table of contents clearly highlights some of the new collections and product lines John Bead added to the catalog.  The new Leather Works line was launched in January with a new collection of leather crafting tools and a new book by Fernando DaSilva. Flat leather is new to John Bead and this line is already expanding.  We have many new beads including a vintage group.  The sew-on resin sugar stones and fashion components are gorgeous.
