A Poem About

Recently one of our customers sent us a poem about our company. The way she waxed poetic (pardon the pun) about us, you’d think we’d paid her to write it! But we didn’t. It was so clever and made us feel so proud that we had to share it.

Elegant Elephant Tea Cosie

March 26th, 2009 · 1 Comment

Designed by customer

Designed by customer Kathleen Gray

I have an unusual design, a tea cosie made from silk, in the shape of an elephant with beads adorning it. The beads help to create the illusion of the elephant. I brought the beads with me from artbeads, using mostly Tohos. druks, and lapis lazuli for the eyes. I am currently in India traveling and was inspired by the Kudamattom ritual in Southern India. The ritual celebrates the local goddesses with spectacular processions of finely decorated elephants. The elephants are painted, bejeweled, and given a beautiful satin robe. I have named this piece “Elegant Elephant Tea Cosie” in celebration of the goddess at tea time!

March 19th, 2009 · 6 Comments

I work at I wanted to add some bling to my little car, so I got a few license plate frames and some Swarovski Flatback Rhinestones. I used the colors Cobalt, Light Sapphire AB, and Light Siam for these 3 frames. I can’t decide on which one I really like–they all look great!!

LillyPilly Earrings

March 5th, 2009 · 6 Comments

Hello, My name is Megan and I work at in the Product Marketing Department. I’ve always loved the Lillypilly Shell Pendants and a couple months ago I was going through some product and came across the light olive swirling ivy pendants. As soon as I saw them I knew I wanted to make them into earrings. To dress them up a little, I added 3 freshwater pearls.
