We're back from Tuscan
Its that time of year again and Maria just got back from a fun filled trip of treasure hunting in Tuscon.
Stop by soon to check out all of our new treasures. We have a great selection of beautiful czech glass, lots of georgeous gemstones, cinnabar, large handcarved jade focal beads, a huge selection of fun ceramic beads (including animals, angels and devils, rainbows, peace signs and more.) large cloisonne focal beads, funky hammered copper chain as well as copper beads and bali silver.

***********************Introducing The Itty Bitty Smithy
The Itty Bitty Smithy is a metal and glass studio coming soon. Local artist and blacksmith Robert Noelke (also my better half) will be doing some small scale metal working classes.Robert, along with Photographer Jay Shoots, recently won a design competition for the cities of Atlantic and Neptune Beach. Robert designed a 29 foot stainless steel gyroscope which spins with the wind and has seating around the base.When approved by the city council, the large sculpture will stand at the end of Atlantic Blvd in the roundabout by the Seaturtle and Ragtime in the town center..
We are opening a small studio in a space we've been hiding out in the back of the building. In addition to Roberts classes, I will be teaching some hammered copper classes, local glass artist Bryon Nobles will be teaching some fun glass pendant classes and Catina Jane will be doing hammered wire classes..
We are hoping to have the Itty Bitty Smithy up and running full time in the next couple of months, but we will be doing some introductory classes in the mean time.We will keep you posted.
