Possibly TOO Much Fun for Mid-Winter ~ New Glass Mini Bottles and Microscope Slides!

microscopeslidependant1 We've just added 1x3" microscope slides , memory foil tape , and lovely Aanraku style pendant bails and ball chain necklaces for making cool customized altered art and photo pendant keepsake jewelry. See our "Fun with Microscope Slides " freebie project page for more inspiration.

We've also just added some really fun slightly larger mini glass bottles - they're been all over the craft channels lately with tons of different uses. Our mini bottles are available in 2pc or 10 pc packs - they're great for storing our new collection of encased glass seed beads or our Matsuno "e" beads in style. Very stable - they stand upright on their own. They're great fun to play with - Stick an eye pin through the top cork along  with beads of choice and you've got an instant place holder, desk buddy, or a just for fun arty pendant or hanging decoration.

 Our talented friends Anne Strasser and her mom Janet Hyland made these really cool beaded lady samples with some of our fimo lady heads, bottles, eye pins, jewelry maker's mix and Matsuno "e" beads. Click images for detailed view.
