Pendant Swap

In addition to our website here, we also sell on Artfire.  Recently there was a pendant swap that was organized by cctexan that we participated in.  Basically a bunch or artists sent her pendants, she swapped them around and sent the pendants back out.  For every one you sent in, you got one back.  We received our pendants today, and I have to say there is some great work here.  Here is what we got.

From Rocky Creek Gems

White marble cabochon with seed beads

A wonderful piece that obviously has a lot of time involved in it.  That’s a lot of beads!

From Trinkets & Treasures

Silver art clay leaf pendant with stone

I love the stone that is in this.  I don’t know what it is, but it is a beautiful shade of dark blue.  One day I will get to play with art clay.

From Jewelry by Joy

Purple crazy lace agate wrapped with copper

The purple in this stone is wonderful, and the lines just really pop.  Good thing I got some new copper wire in today so I can make a matching chain.

Now I just have to figure out how to use these in one of our designs.

We’d like to thank cctexan for putting this together, and all the wonderful artists who participated and made this a great experience.

If you are looking for a wonderful handmade pendant, I highly suggest you take a look at these wonderful artists.

C&T Designs now at the Bead Corner

We are happy to announce that not only will we be now teaching at the Bead Corner in Monument, but they will be carrying a full line of our jump rings.

Our class schedule will be posted later today, and they already have a full line of rings just waiting to feed your muse.  Bronze, brass, copper, niobium, silver, aluminum, if you need it, they probably have it.

C&T Now teaching at the US Air Force Academy

If you remember back in Sept of last year we posted about teaching at the US Air Force Academy.  Well, it took a bit of time, but we are now official military contractors.

Our first 2 classes have been scheduled and will be added to our calender shortly.  They will also be announced through the USAFA publications.  After our first class, they will also be doing an article on what we do.  It should also have some photographs since chainmaille is very visual.

So, for those that have been asking us the last couple of months when we would be there, the answer is now.

We will see you soon!
