We made it back from Tucson with 11 pallets of beads and stones! We shared a special edition just over a week ago, so you can read all about the trip there. This edition, we will be sharing some more new stock, as well as our class schedule and a bit more about Jennifer, who teaches some of our beading classes. 

As always, we hope to see you in-store this month, but if you can't make it, be sure to visit us online on Facebook, Instagram, YouTube and our website

There is so much new inventory that we can't show you all of it, but we will share some highlights. Please note that you can see a few more new items in the special edition newsletter from a few weeks ago! 
Seriously stunning stone beads 
We unearthed the beads from Tucson at last!  We're still working on getting them out, but the the first wave is in the photo above. Primarily stone, our haul of beads include lapis lazuli, moonstone, turquoise, labradorite, eagle eye agate, and much more! 
Of course, there is no shortage of stones including stone statues, druzy agate, more celestine, and amazing moldavite. Moldavite is a tektite formed in southern Germany. Moldavite is a result of meteor impact. Its green color is unique to the Nördlinger Ries Crater. We nabbed a few more mosasaur teeth and plenty of orthoceras, including a stunning showpiece. We also have an expanded array of trilobites, including some on matrices.

We've returned from Tucson, but the deals don't stop! Not only are select stones still 40% off, but we have added to the collection!
