October 2016 Newsletter - 15% Off New Super8 Beads & 3mm Etched Fire-Polished Beads

Now that autumn is well and truly here, it’s definitely time to begin your projects if you plan to give beaded gifts for Christmas. As usual, we’ve had a lot of new bead arrivals since our last newsletter to give you inspiration.

We’ve been begging the manufacturer of our etched range of beads to create them in 11/0 seed beads and 3mm fire-polished beads for the past couple of years, and they’ve finally come through. We received the first of the 11/0s a few weeks ago, and the 3mm fire-polished have just arrived. The manufacturer doesn’t yet have the full range of colours in stock in either of these beads, but we will be adding them as they become available.

The introductory price on the 3mm fire-polished beads is 15% off, through 31 October 2016. The new etched beads can be found in our new items section here, or in their respective bead sections (3mm fire-polished and Czech 11/0 seed beads).

Super8 Beads

We have an introductory range (which we’ll add to as time goes on) of Czech Super8 glass beads at 15% off until 31 October 2016. Super8 beads are small two-holed glass beads in the shape of a figure 8, similar to SuperDuo and Twin beads, although Super8 beads are smaller and have narrower ends. They’re already flying out the door! We’ll be getting SuperDuo beads in before the end of the year or early next year, and we think the Super8s will complement them nicely, as it gives a range of sizes to play with. Our Super8 beads can be found here.

Prices Up and Down
Miyuki recently announced price hikes, some for the first time in 20 years, and on some beads we will have to increase prices as we re-stock, although we will keep the increase to a minimum. We’re pleased to announce, however, that in spite of this we’ve lowered our prices on 11/0 Delica beads. In fact, our new Delica prices are some of the lowest you’ll find anywhere.
