(Grants Pass, Oregon)--Fire Mountain Gems and Beads®, America's Favorite Beading and Jewelry Supply Company®, introduces new cane glass beads and slicer bead mixes in exciting colors and designs.
Vibrant cane glass beads are as appealing as old-fashioned candy sticks. Handcrafted in the USA by Fire Design Beads, the colorful fine art components are equally eye-catching in both high-end and casual designs. Many feature "lattichino"--thin white, clear or colored candy cane-like stripes. The inside diameter is 4mm wide, making the glass beads ideal for stringing on chain, cord, leather and ribbon. In addition to jewelry designs, cane glass beads are great for use with home décor projects--the glass tubes are the perfect size to decorate the beadable letter opener and beadable butter knife.
Another new variety of cane glass beads is now available. Known as "slicers" since they are created from slices of cane glass, these artful glass beads contain gorgeous colors and designs that originate within the beads. Set in translucent slices of cane glass, accent colors may include black, white, purple, blue, green, pink, red, yellow, orange and brown. The beads are 3-6mm thick and most have larger holes ideal for stringing on chain, cord, leather and ribbon. Bead shapes may include oval, round, square, triangle and more. In sizes ranging from 8 to 27mm, packages are available in 1-ounce and 1-pound mixes.
Known for exceptional customer service, Fire Mountain Gems and Beads has been the one-stop shop for jewelry-making wholesalers, retailers and designer-artists for over 38 years.
