Since you asked:

"Therefore, to be possess'd with double pomp, to guard a title that was rich before, to gild refined gold, to paint the lily,
to throw a perfume on the violet, to smooth the ice, or add another hue unto the rainbow, or with taper-light
to seek the beauteous eye of heaven to garnish, is wasteful and ridiculous excess."

~William Shakespeare,
ca. 1595

Yup, that's us.

It's almost Tinsel Time!

With all the packing and shipping, there's hardly been any time for posting. It's been ages since I've gotten on a plane to go anywhere, and the thought of packing up a microcosm of my store and the kits got a little bit much for me, so the kits were all boxed up and are on their way to Iva as of this morning. I managed to get many of our favorite designs ready, and some new ones, too. Here are just a few of the GTL Make&Takes that will be putting in an appearance...

The Paris Necklace...

Chartres Earrings...

Ascension Necklace...

All Saints Rosary Necklace...

The Catharine Pendant...

The all new Immaculate Necklace...

Immaculate Ring...

Immaculate Earrings...

...and the all new Fall Leaves Bracelet!

We did our best to load these up with new findings, medals and beads, including new crosses, the beautiful acorns and oak leaves you see above, beautiful mother of pearl beads, nuggets and faceted rondelles. There are also new kits inspired by African trade beads (look for the Cape Verde kits), and more.

This week, I'll be packing up ribbons, trims, flowers, feathers, and other wonderful little things for inspiring creativity this fall and holiday season. I'll be bringing many of the new things I found on my last buying trip with Dede, and some of my old favorites, too. I've got two suitcases to fill, and one little carry on for me. I'll cram in as much as I can, girls!

We are looking forward to seeing some of you who don't often make it down to the store in Southern California. Both Dede and I will be there, and you can check in on the Tinsel and Treasures web site and blog for all the details and a complete list of artists.


Hope to see you there!

Hi, I LOVE those brass acorn charms in the last kit. Is there any chance you might make them available in your online shop?
