New at Bumbershoot Supplies. 27 Gorgeous Additions, Vintage Metal, Glass Cabochons, Beads, Millinery

Here's an update on new items at Bumbershoot Supplies.
Since September 1, we have added 27 new and restocked 13 items!
We have been working to expand our offerings of vintage metal, so you'll see a lot of new metals at Bumbershoot Supplies. I've also reorganized the store categories once more, as we begin to stock settings to match our rhinestones and cabochons.
We'll stock as many vintage settings as we can find. In addition, we have also ordered settings for both pointed and flat back rhinestones and cabochons in an antiqued brass finish. We expect a selection to be available by the end of the month, along with some new and spectacular rhinestones. These high quality antiqued brass settings are made in the United States, antiqued for us, using no lead or nickel in either the settings or the antiquing process. Stay tuned! Now, onto a selection of our new items...

Here are some of the new settings we have available. I'm showing these with cabochons, actions shots, if you will :) The filigree is not really a setting, but I was inspired by our featured artist Jeanne van Etten, who has made some lovely necklaces using these cabochons and similar filigrees. The antiqued silver is an example of the new settings en route to us, the filigree and fancy bezel are vintage...

We have some new and lovely vintage glass, including yet another vintage Japanese glass pearl, this one a twisted leaf with an embedded wire loop. I was really excited to find these amethyst sew ons, dating to 1939-1945, with the most wonderful original packaging from the "Czecho-Protectorate-Germany". You'll find a photo of the packaging included in the listing. The robin's egg blue cabochons are vintage Japanese, just gorgeous...
