The Pittsburgh Jewelry Making Meetup Group Message Board › PUGDOG'S Rock & Bead Shop - Info, Announcements, and More › Hours this week, expanded - Tues/Weds/Thurs/Friday - Metal Beads
We should have expanded hours this week.
There are a lot of beads I need to get through.
I did some trading with the African bead vendor (even traded back some beads I had bought awhile ago, that he wanted back!) and have a nice selection of the larger metal "copper/brass" beads. They are pounded, wound, and fused metal in shapes that are very, very interesting and lend themselves to many creative possibilities. I will try to post pictures when I get in tomorrow. These are limited, as I only have one strand (as few as 9 beads) of each kind! They are $2 to $8 each
The African beads, both metal and ceramic/glass, are colorful, large, and interesting, and would make great focal pieces for ornaments and decorations, not just jewelry. Many of these would look great hanging by a window, or from a tree, or attached to a wreath. These are the kind of beads that add that bit of vintage/nostalgic charm.
So this week, I should be in, or someone will be manning the shop, during these hours.
Friday ? Afternoon.
