I have to admit when I got the mail this evening, I was happy to see the Fire Mountain Gems Catalog live and in person.
When I lifted it out of the box, I will also admit that I had a good chuckle because it must weigh at least 5 pounds!
My first thought was, Wow-not only is this a great resource, but it could also be used as an exercise weight!
I know they have struggled with making the decision about continuing to print the full catalog all at once, but I believe their customers have spoken and said they want it!
I thought it would be good timing to mention Fire Mountain Gems here because I have received a few questions about the colorful rubber tubing that was used in the Dandelion Bracelet and the Button Necklace in my book, A Bead in Time.
I am not aware of other companies who carry the assorted colors so here is a link to the tubing in their online catalog that I used.
If you are interested in the hard copy catalog, here is a link to request one.
