      Hi Kevin, The CZ stones are almost ready to go up (as each and every single stone had to be individually photographed) as well as photos of jewelry pieces made with them for your ‘inspiration’. I can tell you that the CZ stone prices are extremely affordable (which, in today’s economy, is going to help us to be able to sell our work).

      The beads will be a while yet, but it’s going to be so nice to have a consistent source of CZ ‘beads’ (rather than briolettes, charms & drops) that (in my opinion) rival more expensive crystals, have the nice weight of hematite, and shine like crazy! (Obviously, I’m excited as my students and I have been seeking these beads at every gemshow for the past several years, often having had to buy whatever we could find.)

    I am estatic to hear about the CZ beads with the larger holes!!!!! I have been a snob about using “real” gem stone beads, however, the holes make it very challenging!

    Yes, in the video you mentioned CZ Beads. I would be interested in these as, I have never set faceted stones and prefer beads to string for use with my wire projects.

      Then you will love these Mush, but as I have mentioned, it will be a while longer before we have the CZ beads in stock.
