New Bundles and Studio Sunday Tour Links

After returning from Bead & Button I collected some beads and pendants before returning them to stock and made up some new Wholesale Bundles.  The Bundles are carefully selected assortments of both regular stock and one of a kind/unusual items that co-ordinate in theme and colorway and are priced at wholesale in $100 bundles. I have eight of them listed in my special Etsy Wholesale shop now, including this red and black and bone white bundle that is a little romantic and a little dark.

That's a little bit of news from my studio... here are some things my bead blogger friends have been up to this week:

  1. I love love love these! I put them in my favorites on etsy. I don't have the money this month because my cat has to go back to the vet, but I will be sure to keep an eye on them and hopefully they will still be there when my finances allow. Thanks for posting about them!

    Have a fantastic day :)

  2. I love this idea of wholesale bundles. I haven't sold a thing this month so my budget--well there is none. But I hope you keep offering these. Love the sage/green group.
