From the owner of 1 Stop bead Shop, Lisa Busch

Hello Bead Friend!

I'm so excited to finally be back in the store after nearly 3 weeks of travel with only a week off in between. Travel is wonderful, and I'm go grateful to be able to do it, but it's so nice to come back to family, friends, my own bed, bath and kitchen, and get back to the work I love. Part of my excitement is also for all the cool stuff we found for you!

Join us for our

Bead & Button Show
(and a touch of the Czech Republic)
Trunk Show
Kick off - this Saturday, June 13

(get the best selection of limited quantity items, AND get a coupon good for the rest of June - coupon given on Saturday, June 13 ONLY. Don't forget to use your June come back coupon given out at Robin's Cat's Away Sale.)
Trunk Show runs through Sat, June 20

Here are a few of the goodies you can expect to find:

From the Bead & Button Show

Joella's Lampwork Tantrum Beads - we don't know how many more of these we will be able to get, as she is no longer doing shows. Quantities limited.
1 Andrea Guarino-Slemmons Enameled Heart Bead - Hannah told me I had to get these for you, as she is one of America's premier lampwork artists and her beads are as collectible as they are amazing! (Sorry, no extra discount on this bead)
Czech Glass Button Clasps set in Sterling & Gold Filled
New line of Art Deco style clasps in Sterling & Antique Brass - will go beautifully with Vintaj.
New removable clasp for beadwoven cuffs - very nifty - One of the hottest items for beadweavers at this year's show - we bought out the last she had of the smalls in silver & copper. Everyone was talking about them. Once you see it in action, everyone will want one. Available in limited quantities of silver & copper. (Sorry, no discounts on these beads.)
A whole new wall of Czech Glass beads
An entire line of Wood Beads - painted & natural - large, lightweight, and very current - great colors with pearlized matte metallic finishes.
New selection of Stewart Abelman Lampwork Beads including his newest color releases and some furnace glass cabochons he's begun making! Quantities limited
Going quickly - More Sher Berman Lampwork Beads. Her style and artistry gets better every year. Come see why we sell out of her beads every year!
Introducing perlAmore - You saw the large hole sterling core Venetian glass beads previewed during the Venetian Trunk. Now we have the ENTIRE line. perlAmore is a BRAND NEW line of sterling core bracelets similar to Pandora and Troll, but being introduced at a better price. All sterling, Venetian, & Swarovski, but made by a company who specializes in Venetian glass. Designed to fit all brands of large core bracelets.
Introducing Hand Painted Russian Art Beads & Hand Painted Ceramic Beads. These beauties are something brand new to Columbus. Each bead is a work of art, with the Russian Art Beads all signed by the artist! Stunning!
New lampwork artitst - Melissa Rediger - Thanks to Cindy who asked us to look for her at the show. Beautiful, colorful sets of bracelet sized lampwork beads at a reasonable price.
New line of fancy Venetian Blown Glass - Come see how cool they are to fill with seed beads, or let a Tierra Cast rod show through.
From the Czech Republic:

Collectable Buttons in box sets - Lisa purchased these in living room of the 4th generation artist who make them. Also see an authentic button press.
Czech Lampwork Focals w/ Copper Dichro. Also brought back in Lisa's luggage from the Czech Republic. The Czech specialize in pressed glass and firepolish, so Czech lampwork is much more rare. These come in match colors of large and medium focals so you can make a complete jewelry set.
Vintage Czech Crystal - Pre-WWII - Gorgeous cut crystal buttons and beads. These were released from the private stash of a Czech crystal vendor who has been holding on to them for years. The cuts and colors are amazing! Very limited quantities of beads I may never see again.
Hannah Lampwork Trunk Show

Congratulations again to Hannah who made it into the juried Bead & Button Bead Dreams competition with her lampwork Irises. Now you can own one like the ones she had in the show. She has also brought a new line of PDF tutorials for her intermediate and advanced projects on CD. Hannah's Trunk Show ends this Saturday, June 13, when she heads home to Taos.
