TierraCast's $75 Giveaway of the You Too Collection

By on Monday, September 21, 2015 97 Comments

All charms are not created equally.  Well made charms make jewelry designs far, far better.  One company which makes charms and other findings exceedingly well is TierraCast which is based in California.  I received their newest line, the you too Collection (shown below) for review.  It didn't disappoint.

They've following up their original you collection which I also reviewed a while back.  The you too collection has numerical charms as well as whimsical ones such as the bird, paw print and heart in 4 different finishes.  They also introduced their ball chain and ear wires. 



But the delicate bezels are the showstoppers because Tierracast precision manufactured to fit Swarovski flat back SS34 crystals (7.1 mm i.d.). These were my absolute favorites from this new line.  The bezels and rivoli frames with pre-glued Swarovski crystals!  They come in 15 colors - 12 birthstone and 3 neutrals.



I used the smaller pre-glued Swarovski crystals in bezel charms as well as some of their new charms to make geometric inspired spiral wire bookmarks. The tutorial for this will come out later this week.


Charms come in useful for all sorts of bracelet designs - kumihimo, wire work, crochet, beading etc! I used Tierracast charms including those from earlier collections for a series thread and cord wrap bracelets designs.  I also used some of the clasps Tierracast makes too. The tutorial for making these bracelets FAST with a simple tool will also be out later this week.

  3. I love TierraCast products, but they are virtually impossible to find where I live (other than by mail order), so having this collection would be wonderful. The pre-set Swarovski crystals are my faves, & I know someone who would adore the paw print charms.

    I am a blog subscriber & follow you on FB. Thanks for everything you do fo the beading/jewelry community.

  29. What fabulous designs you have come up with Pearl!! I said 'OH!' when I came to your bookmark designs!! I sell quite a few bookmarks but they are usually to the traditional hook ones with a few angel paper clip ones on the side. I'm always thinking of different ways to make bookmarks so this is going to be a fun tutorial. PLUS - adding any type of Tierracast product always makes things special!
    I also really liked your cord and thread bracelets. How cute are those!!
    Looking forward to your tutes coming up my friend!
