texture tools!

The wait is over! We have four designs to sell at Bead Fest. These are the same tools we made a year or so ago and stopped producing due to lack of time. Greg already has so much to do: filling orders, all the business stuff, website, designing, casting and doing trade shows. So we are so pleased that these are hand cast in Ohio! We were adamant that our work be made in the U.S. from quality materials, by folks receiving a fair wage. So much of what people buy today is made somewhere else, which doesn't really help our economy. Anyway, these tools will be available this weekend for 15 dollars each. I'll make up some samples to display the designs, but if you have my book Enchanted Adornments, the tools are used on many of the pieces.
We will be donating 3 dollars from the sale of each tool to Bob Burkett's daughter, Lisa. She has just been diagnosed with breast cancer and we want to help alleviate the huge financial burden this illness creates. Other products will be available with proceeds going to this cause. Bob will be there too, (with loads of pretty turtles and swirly octopi!) to help raise money. So, if you are going to be in the area, stop by and say hello to Greg and Bob and take a look at some of our new goods.

YAY! I am so glad you have these tools again! I have some that you made a long time ago and use them all the time! Looking forward to seeing the crew at Bead Fest.

I am a huge fan of Enchanted Adornments here in California. Is there any other way to purchase them???

Will you be selling them on your website? I won't be going to Bead Fest.
Bead Happy!

Same question -- will the tools be available online? Hope so!

These won't be available online until Greg gets home from the show and catches up on some work. We don't have a huge amount of them, but I'll post when they go on the website.
