Shaking up the store with new items.

We took some time this weekend and made some changes in the store.  We used to have a “supply” section that was everything tool and supply related that was not jump rings.  Well, we added a number of new products and to hopefully make it easier for you, we seperated the old supply section into instructional, findings, and tools.

Instructional is books for now, but will eventually get our own tutorials.

Findings is, well, findings.  From our own niobium earwires, to toggles and lobster claws.  We have 2 new handmade niobium clasps that will be put up in the next day, with at least one more to come next week, so stay tuned to this area!

Tools, is tools.  My favorite section!  We have added a few more tools here, with more in the comming days.

As we continue to grow we will be expanding all of these sections.  If there is something specific you would like to see us carry, feel free to let us know and we will do our best to find it.

And remember, It’s in the Maille!

We are very excited to announce that C&T Designs jump rings can now be found at Aussie Maille.  Aussie Maille is an Australian business run by one of the nicest people I have had  the pleasure to deal with and they specialize in chainmaille jump rings.  A perfect fit for us!

We have just sent them their first package which included niobium and stainless steel jump rings.  Stay tuned to their website to see thier new products.

Double Vision

We are very happy to announce our new product line, Double Vision.  Products in the Double Vision line will

be Argentium silver based with either niobium or gold mixed in. We chose these metals because we think they look stunning together, and with the Argentium silver, you won’t have to worry about tarnishing for a very long time.

This product line will only be available from us either through our store or our Etsy shop.  They will not be available in any retail location that carries our product.

We have already added Double Vision earrings and a necklace to our online shop, and will be adding more over the next few weeks.

Palmer High School craft show

Saturday and Sunday, November 15 and 16th, we will be at the Palmer High School craft show.  The show runs 9-4 on the 15th, and 10-3 on the 16th.  This years show will feature about 80 vendors of all sorts and food will be available.  Admission is free.  Fair will be held in the main gym, downtown Colorado Springs.  Come on out and see all of our designs, or just to say hi.  Mention this post and get 10% off your purchase.

We would also like to thank all our wonderful customers, new and returning alike, who came out to see us last weekend at Pine Creek.

18g SWG niobium back in stock

We received our wire shipment today and have been feverishly making rings.  All are marked back in stock and are ready to be shipped.  For those that ordered while they were out, will be shipping orders tomorrow.  You will receive your shipping confirmation once your order has been packed.

We have new sized rings planned, as well as more color options for our current ring sizes.  All of these should be added to the store next week.

Kits now available

When we teach a class locally we always make sure we have kits available for our students.  Recently we have been asked about putting some online.  Today we added  a “kit” section to our store, and added our first kit.  This kit is a Full Persian bracelet kit in argentium silver.  It features almost 1.25 ozT of argentium silver and a lobster claw clasp to finish it off.  It will make a bracelet to fit up to an 8.5 inch wrist.  We will be adding a few more over the next few weeks.  All of our kits will be silver (either argentium or sterling) or niobium based.  Some will be strictly one metal, some will be a mix of silver, gold or niobium.  All of the rings will be cut by us in what we feel is the perfect size for the particular weave.  If you have a kit you would like to see us offer, don’t hesitate to contact us.  We love to hear from you!

It’s in the Maille!
