New Beads on the Website and Beads 2010

Guess what! Beads 2010 came out and I have beads in it, YAY!  Looking back at the due date, I saw that it was between Christmas and New Years and the Bead Cruise, so it is no wonder I forgot what I even sent in.  So today I am scrambling to get a few things up on the website that made it to print, because I didn't have them up yet.  Some of the updates are color options, like the new Rusty Engine option on the Castle Keyhole pendant.  Others are items that I have never had up, including new versions, like the Long Keys above.  The oval version of the Long Key made it to Beads 2010, but I have a new rectangular one too, so I added both options to one item.  Another new item is the Lock and Key Heart Pair shown below. The magazine had them in Red and Seafoam, but I am making more to have a few more options soon.

 If you get a chance to head to the bookstore or craft store, look for Beads 2010!  It is a beautiful issue, just like it is every year!  So many fun shopping choices!
