New Czech PRONG Beads and new CzechMates: 3-hole BEAM beads & 2-hole CABOCHON beads

January is a busy month for beading. We are all trying to get ready for the next season, Tucson show starts at the end of the month and, as almost every year at this time, we are anxiously waiting for the launch of the new glass beads from the Czech Republic. It seems like there is no end to the ingenuity of the Czech bead-masters. This year we’ll soon be able to play with CzechMates 3-hole Beam Beads, CzechMates 2-hole Cabochons and Prong Beads.

hp-new-patterns

CzechMates 3-hole Beams look like stretched 2-hole Bars with a third hole added in the middle. 3-hole beams are 10×3 mm in size. They can be used as spacers or with other beads as linking components . Free patterns for all three shapes are already available on our site, so please check out free patterns.

CzechMates 2-hole Cabochons are flat at the bottom and have a domed top. These beads were first offered for a pre-sale as 6mm Cabochons and then while we were all waiting for the delivery Czech manufacturer reclassified them as 7mm. Their actual size is 6.5mm so be careful not to confuse them with 2-hole Cabochons which look identical but are smaller and measure exactly 6mm. The size difference when you compare both Cabochons is quite dramatic.

Prong Beads look like a shark’s tooth and measure 6×3 mm. They have only one hole and can be used individually as small drops or in bead-weaving patterns.

All three new Czech bead shapes are available now in a large assortment of colors on Eureka Crystal Beads website.

Swarovski Inovations Spring/Summer 2017 – The Balance of Nature

At the beginning of this year, Swarovski launched their new line of crystal colors and shapes. The main theme of this year’s release was “THE BALANCE OF NATURE”. The idea came from recognizing the fact that over the past 15 years we have witnessed radical changes in the way we meet, interact, live and even age. The influx of new technology has steadily become overwhelming and made us want to step back, to pause and seek fulfillment, satisfaction  and meaning in our busy daily lives. Well-being has become the global mantra. Our desire to reconnect with unspoiled nature, with mind, body and soul is creating a huge demand for travel to off the beaten track destinations, calming practices of meditation and yoga.

With this year’s designs, Swarovski is focusing on well-being, allowing us to reconnect with our inner selves through the eternal elements of Air, Earth, Water and Fire.

A breath of fresh air, remains a potent symbol of calm for all those wishing to retreat from the pressure of daily life. The Crystal Pearlescent White Pearl, is a new stunning Swarovski effect in the Crystal Pearl.

airTimeless romantic design embraces the natural colors of planet Earth. Graphite is a new color representing this trend, a strong, bluish grey-black which is both elegant and mysterious. It forms the perfect gradient transition between Crystal Silver Night and Jet.

fireVibrant, eye-catching colors are the mainstay of the over-the-top glamour favored equally by celebrities. The new color, Yellow Opal is finding its origins in the gemstone Citrine. Yellow Opal is a very happy color. Its bright yellow hue has been give a matte, opalescent finish giving it a genuine gemstone appeal.

Our favorite is Yellow Opal AB2X available now in 3 and 4 mm Swarovski Bicones at www.eurekacrystalbeads.com. Get it now and see for yourself how truly stunning this color is.

Chrysanthemum Bracelet with 2-hole Crescents, 2-hole Lentils and 6 mm Czech Druk Beads brightens our cold winter days

Winter has finally arrived in New England. Temperature has dipped overnight by 15 degrees and ground is covered with a layer of fresh snow. Those of you who live in the South may think that it is a real struggle to make it through the cold winter months here, but to tell you the truth at Eureka Crystal Beads we don’t get affected by the weather changes too much. We always have beading projects to do and these keep our spirits up and keep us warm on the inside. Just recently we have featured on our website a fabulous free beading project by Nichole Starman called Chrysanthemum Bracelet.

Chrisanthemum-Free-Pattern

Chrysanthemum Bracelet is made of individual beaded flowers which are joined together to form a bracelet. You can easily use leftover beads for this project, but if you don’t have them you can purchase TWO HOLE CRESCENTS, TWO HOLE LENTILS & 6 mm DRUK BEADS from Eureka at a discount (till tomorrow).

crescents-1.SALE2-hole-lentils-saletDruk-sale1MagnClaspblog

Czech Firepolish Beads are here to stay, buy them on sale now!

It seems that in the past year or so the entire focus of the beading industry has been on 2-hole beads and 4-hole beads. There is no question that this, relatively new, development of adding additional holes to the glass beads has revolutionized beading and hooked us even more on a hobby which we already liked, but it doesn’t mean that traditional one-hole beads are going away any time soon. As a matter of fact Eureka Crystal Beads now stocks and sells more Firepolish beads than ever before.

Those of you who have ever placed an order with us know that we include (in each order) a free pattern of the month. September pattern is called Bellflower Earrings, by a TrendSetter Cindy Holsclaw.

BELLFLOWER EARRINGS

Bellflower-earrings

Starting next month you will be getting a new free pattern with each order. It will be a cool  bracelet. You’ll love it!

And now going back to our sale. You all use firepolish beads, but do you know where the name comes from?

Here are some interesting facts:

FIREPOLISH BEADS are pressed out of lead free, colored glass rods, processed in large drum-shaped, semi-automatic grinding machines to eliminate lumps, or irregularities and  placed in industrial ovens for firepolishing, during which their surface is slightly melted to make them look shiny and feel smooth. This ages-old, traditional firepolishing process transforms ordinary glass beads into sparkly, vintage looking beads sought after by all beaders.

Firepolish Gemstone Doughnuts are perfect for quick and easy but attractive projects. Make an earring featured below from discontinued colors (still in stock).

New Free Beading Pattern for Victory Bangle & Your Favorite Zipper Bracelet

We have recently added free beading patterns to our website. They are all available to you in a printed form.  Not surprisingly Zipper Bracelet by Anna Lindell is one of your favorites.

Zipper

Zipper Bracelet is easy to make, looks great and is very comfortable to wear. The zig-zag texture of its design adds eye-catching contrast and flair. Main beads needed to make this bracelet are Two Hole Czech Triangles, which you can find in our Czech Glass, CzechMates section. Base is made with 1.5 mm Toho Cubes. You will also need size 11 and size 15 Toho. For a full list of supplies click here.

You can make your own variations of this bracelet. In a green bracelet pictured above we have used 3 mm Toho Bugles (on top of Triangles), the gold one we have dressed up with a 3 mm Swarovski Bicone.

Both bracelets look fabulous. Personally we like the one with 3 mm Bicones better. Swarovski adds a little bit of sparkle and interest to this already exceptional design.

And here is another free bracelet pattern which takes 2-Hole Triangles. It is called Victory Bangle. This design by Nichole Starman starts with a strong foundation of Two Hole Bricks, which quickly works up to delicate yet edgy bands of Triangles. By the end you’ll have created a solid bangle with a texture and depth that is only possible with two hole czech beads.
