Today, I want to talk about what's got me all excited.  As many of you may know, I have been a designer for about a dozen years now, but I bet a lot of you didn't know that I was actually a purchasing/product manager for quite some time as well.  I am going to let you in on a little bit of a secret: TierraCast has always been - and will always be - one of my favorite product lines.  Not only are their products lead safe and nickel free and made in the USA and all that good stuff, but they are also trendy, versatile, super high quality, and amazingly beautiful.  So... with that being said... We are proud and excited to be launching their newest lines.  One features ethnic and tribal products, such as lotus charms and pendants, while the other incorporates flora and fauna into stamped metal charms and components.

Of course, you know we would never just throw product out there without giving you some projects for instruction and inspiration... The Dulce Vida bracelet embodies what the collection is all about: earthy gemstones paired with leather cording and a TierraCast button to make a bracelet that rocks on its own, but is also super cool when stacked with other pieces. 

Want a pair of super sassy earrings? Want to make them with some homemade tassel dangles? Well, look no further. The Lotus Blossom earrings are a very versatile project you can create using the new lotus charms and pendants. Create these trendy earrings with either antique brass or antique silver charms and any color of thread your heart desires.

Last but not least, we have the Vertebrae bracelet.  This one uses round leather with size 6/0 seed beads and a new TierraCast button in a smaller size.  The use of jump rings to create a zig zag effect between the beads is brilliant!  And just as with the Dulce Vida bracelet, this piece can be worn layered with other bracelets or on its own.
