It's been a couple of years since there has been a StinkyDog Beads giveaway. Since then, Kitty Bozzini has expanded her inventory to include many gorgeous items. She started out as a lampwork artisan but now offers unique one of a kind findings as well as the uncommon ones. She has an uncanny eye for the sort of sumptuous beads, charms, clasps that can add that something extra to any jewelry design.
It was incredibly hard to pick my favorites to feature here! Her animal clasps were wonderful. She also stocks Super New Glue (not the usual Super Glue which can become brittle with time) which I have found to be excellent for the Regaliz style bracelets. It's the only glue I use for that kind of application.
There are many types of cast metal beads. The sea theme ones are lovely. What's more, she also offers some with different finishes. Kitty also caters to those who love the beautiful patina colors but not so much the patination process.
Sea glass is getting harder to find. So if you just like the look of frosted glass, check out the faux sea glass which Kitty calls cultured recycled "sea glass". The sea horse ones are so cool!
Great selection of Czech beads, too!
Kitty also supports other handmade artisans. These lovely ceramic bird beads are by Gaea Cannaday.
The ethnic cotton cords are unusual and with lovely bright colors.
Some of the more unusual items in the store are real preserved wood beads.
Have a look around this wonderful store. StinkyDog Beads has a number of incentives including 15% off your first order and newsletter signup. There is also a rewards program as well as a discount incentive if you share a design.
