New Beads and New Classes for a New Year!

Mary Frances Seashore Purse
Greetings Beady Friends!  Poppyfield Bead Company is abuzz with activity these days.  We've been making room for new products and new ideas.  If you walk into the shop you'll notice changes right away.  We have new displays with beaded delights.  We are showcasing our upcoming classes, as well as the growing repertoire of past classes with patterns for purchase.  In addition, you will be struck by the beautiful beaded purses by Mary Frances that are for sale.  These are hand-made collectors' items, so come take a look.

 I am now carrying Czech seed beads.  We are busy getting them priced and hanging.  We've expanded our 13/0 charlottes selection and have some beautiful and unusual colors such as pink ceylon, green opaque iris, and slate blue.  I have a full array of 10/0 hanks of all the traditional opaque colors.  I've even managed to find some 11/0 one cut / charlottes.  Over time I will be adding Czech tri-cuts and more sizes, colors, and finishes.  So, if you are looking to match your beads on hanks, come on in and see what we've got.

Half Tila's are Here !!

These are 2-holed beads that look like little bricks (see the earrings pictured above).  They are half the size of regular Tila's and dare I say, very very cute.  We've got several colors including some metallics, and many more on the way.  Speaking of Tila's....more Picasso finished Tila's have arrived including a turquoise and lapis picasso.  Our Uno selection is growing and if you want to see some  in action, check out the Love Is In The Air Earring class pictured below.
