Bill's Favorite Things
Bill B., Customer Service Representative
If you've spoken with Bill on the phone, you know that you just never know what to expect -- and that even though he doesn't make jewelry, he has a ton of experience helping people find just the right supplies to bring their visions to reality. Without further ado, here is Bill's list of 47(ish) favorite jewelry-making supplies.
Comments about a few of Bill's favorites:
#49-950-99-08-5 Crying Emoticon Charm
For some reason, this teary-eyed emoticon makes me laugh.
#40-099-10-1 5.2mm Flattened Curb Chain, White
I like the size, feel, and shape of this particular connected series of metal links. I can barely curb chain my enthusiasm!
#06-730-34-03 Radiolarian Pendant, Bermuda blue
I love that Swarovski was inspired by tiny protozoa in the making of these fascinating pendants. Plus I like saying "radiolarian".
49-958-67-AB Skull charm, antique brass
These skull charms are part of TierraCast’s "It’s all about you" collection. I’m beginning to believe them.
#49-958-60-AG Earth Drop charm, antique gold
This charm always makes me feel like an astronaut peering down from a porthole in space.
#27-398-22 Stargazer Mirage Beads
These remind me a little bit of the last image I vaguely remember just before exiting the birth canal into my latest physical incarnation so many long years ago. Shimmery, miraculous, unpredictable!
#06-228-18-03 Heart Pendant, 18mm Bermuda Blue
I like this heart pendant because it reminds me of my favorite movie, “Titanic”. Plus now that I’m on high blood pressure medicine, I sing “My Heart Will Go On” with a new fervor.
#44-550 Sterling Silver 20mm Pineapple Charm
My innate desire for gentleness is easily met with this shiny tropical treasure.
