New Beads and Bridal Charms

When you think of spring your thoughts also turn to brides. If there is a wedding in your spring or summer plans, there are new charms in house to enhance the bridal party's jewelry.
There's a beautiful heart in sterling silver for the Bride, Bride's Mom, Groom's Mom, Maid of Honor and Flower Girl. Use them on a charm bracelet or as a hang tag on the back of a necklace. However you choose to use them, they will be a wonderful keepsake from your special day. These pieces will need to be special ordered, so come in early to check them out.

Do you have a special someone in the armed forces? Here is a wonderful way to keep them close to your heart. This is a sterling silver Dog Tag Locket and is available for each branch of the military. Stop in to see them and to order one for yourself or someone you love.

Last week I told you that the beautiful multi-colored crystal was back. Well I now have it in three more sizes. There is the original 12x10 and now 10x8, 8x6 and 6x4. One of each size will give you a fabulous graduated necklace, bracelet and earring set.

Come on in and see the cool new beads and colors. It will help chase the end of winter blahs away.
