We love a beading party! B.Y.O.B (bring your own beads)! This week, TierraCast designer Tracy Proctor joined us for a live jewelry making jamboree. If you love jewelry, you won't want to miss our beading events. During our shows, we love to answer your questions and get inspired by your ideas. Learn a new technique with us and check out our latest beading supplies.
Join the fun, beading parties are a celebration of crafting. Sara and Tracy Proctor made some lovely jewelry this week. We love TierraCast metal components. Finish your jewelry with an extraordinary clasp that is as brilliant as the beads. Add a metal component for sparkle and shimmer. TierraCast manufactures all of their metals in U.S.A. Artisan craft at a price you can afford! Also this week, Rosanna Brafford showed us how to make a gorgeous necklace using our Parisian Couture Design Kit. Nealay Patel showed us a how to make a bracelet with Soft Flex Beading Wire and SilverSilk Pearlesque Chain. So much fun!
Magnetic clasps are the ideal finishing option for jewelry designs that are easy to put on and remove. This rectangular stitch in version is engineered for seed bead and shaped bead work - offering a flattering and convenient way to finish beadwork pieces of various widths and of a multitude of bead types and sizes. Also works great for a 3-strand bracelet strung on Soft Flex Beading Wire. A Rare Earth Neodymium N45 magnet and two part epoxy along with thorough testing ensures a hold you can count on. For easiest opening, use a "slide to the side" motion. Warning: Individuals with internal pace-makers are recommended to avoid magnet closures.
Since 1978, TierraCast has been making high-quality, lead-free cast beads, findings and components in Santa Rosa, California, USA.
Note: Not for children under the age of 12.
