I want to introduce you to Prima Bead. Have you heard of them? They are a young subsidiary of family owned Cousin Corporation of America, which has been in the jewelry supply and bead business for over 40 years. What an awesome family business! Here are a few things, in my opinion, that makes Prima Bead stand out in the jewelry supply world:
They sent me a beautiful box of jewelry making supplies to play with. It was lined in pretty purple tissue paper – their signature color. It definitely made an impression!
I created a contrasting rustic/glam necklace. The big circle chain was too fun for me not to grab right away.
Prima offers great color coordinated charm mixes. This is not something I am accustomed to seeing from other online jewelry supply stores. Having some assembled bead charms made it so easy to add some sparkle to a pendant I had in my stash. I attached the pendant with 7 ply walnut, waxed Irish linen, instead of wire, to give it a more rustic look.

I am thankful, blessed and possibly one bead strand away from Hoarders knocking on my door, so I am going to pick a random commenter from my blog to send a jewelry goodie bag to with some of the beads and findings that Prima sent to me. Hint: It includes some stretch cord! So you have two chances to win goodies. One at Prima Bead’s Facebook page and one here on my blog.
Go to Prima’s page and “Like” them now and enter to win! Don’t forget to leave a comment on this blog.
To answer my own question: I have been making the minimum amount of jewelry to get by to fill orders and obligations. I have been travelling quite a bit this month so I have not had much time to sit still and make jewelry. We just returned from my husband’s family in CA and we are headed to WI this week to spend Thanksgiving with my parents, my sister’s family and her new baby! I’m so excited.
