Ooo... Raku!

We are now carrying raku by Michigan artist, Duane Collins.  Due to the reflective nature of the finish on this type of pottery, the attached picture does not show how beautiful these pieces really are.  Take my word for it, they are amazing!  Come in to take a look for yourself.

Hot New Item—Silk Ribbon

Our silk, which is hand-dyed in the USA, comes in a huge variety of colors and finishes.  How do you use it?  Well…

Stephanie slid on pewter and lampwork beads (by Buckaroo Beads), wrapped it around her wrist and tied it in a knot.

Lori (Shimmery Jewelry) used them as a tie on her basic stringing necklace.

Those are just two ideas.  What will you do with them?
