I just wanted to share this with you, as I purchased these rutile rubies from your store a few months ago and finally found the right use for them. The second earring is still in progress, but it will be done in time for Christmas!
Karen, a preview; I'll bring to the store soon. The camera does not capture the beads' beauty.
I bought these beads on Sunday and thought you would like to see our creation! Beautiful beads and beautiful store!

The first day of KICK camp through Kirkwood is a success! We had a lot of fun learning the fundamentals of bracelet making. These new skills can be applied to future projects and maybe the start of a new hobby. Thank you to all the youths that joined us. Your creations were unique and beautiful.
.
We think our beads are pretty awesome too.

We've still got safety protocols in place to keep everyone safe and comfortable. We will continue to wear and require masks until Johnson County is at 80% vaccinated to best protect vulnerable populations that have not been or cannot be vaccinated. We hope everyone is getting their chance at becoming vaccinated and keeping safe.
