Winter is Here! 
 
 
 
 
To celebrate the solstice, we revealed our new winter logo on December 21 and we took to social media to spread the news. Inspired by the winter dawn, this color scheme was chiefly selected by Wanda, a showroom associate who teaches all of Touchstone's wire-wrapping classes! Wanda took her inspiration from the sun meeting snowy mountainsides speckled with pine trees. She gathered freshwater pearls, shiny stone and plastic beads of all sorts! We took Wanda's direction and chose light and airy colors that mimic the winter current. New Jade, Sun Stone, Sodalite and iridescent glass and plastic rest upon icy Selenite. You'll be seeing these breezy, cool colors until spring comes to warm us up. Enjoy!
