Since Nov 1, we have added 28 new items and restocked 14 at Bumbershoot Supplies.  Here are some of our new items...
We have just received the third shipment of settings for our vintage cabochons and rhinestones and they are now in stock in the settings, bezels, chain section of Bumbershoot Supplies.  We continue to expand our growing collection of vintage rhinestones to fit our settings…

We’ve added some truly spectacular and uncommon vintage glass pearls, all from Japan. Did you know that the Niki Company, from which the Miriam Haskell Company purchased many glass pearls in the 1950’s and 1960’s, strung their handmade beads on wire, dipped them 7 times, and then polished them by tumbling them, on the wires, in sawdust? I learned this in Cathy Gordon’s book, Miriam Haskell Jewelry. And guess what? The 2 vintage Japanese teardrop pearls shown below came to me strung on the original wires…
