Think about how many online jewelry stores exist! It is staggering. The big guys, like Fire Mountain, has everything you can imagine.......just like the other big online stores have, the same things with the exception of a few exclusive items.
Do you want to be REALLY different?
Do you like rustic style?
Do you like the look and feel of soft buckskin and wood?
There is a need for high quality jewelry with diamonds and gold. I have always preferred silver and turquoise.
I am more attracted to copper, leather, lace, and wood. They team up pretty well together.
Rustic Beads.com will not be selling ear wires, jump rings, glue, or any of the basics you need to finish a product. We will be selling very unique items for you to work with on your own. The wood blanks can be shaped easily with a Dremel. You could do an inlay, a resin pendant, or whatever you can imagine. You can stain wood, dye it, easily drill and shape it, and people love it.
From wood, birch bark, agates, and etched copper beads, to hand cut deer hide from deer that I personally processed, we are going to keep adding more items.
I just finished creating some spreadsheets so that I can keep things organized. I still have a lot of photography and editing to do.
Plus I have to learn how to work the shopping cart and get everything up there.
It is exciting. I hope you all will hang-in there and check back soon.
Merry Christmas to you!!!!!!!
