Copperhead Color Study


Color Study- Copperhead

by Janice Parsons

Copper has to be my lucky color. I decided to name this 5 wrap bracelet after a chance encounter with a Copperhead Snake I had on the Rogue River in Oregon. I was napping in my sleeping bag after lunch when I felt something very heavy move across my chest. I didn’t breathe or blink but slowly opened one eye to see this fierce, out-of-this-world snake slither away over me…I stayed perfectly still and to this day, I consider myself very lucky when I wear copper. And by pairing it with blue, it is a constant reminder of how lucky I was that day. Please visit our Skill Builders section to brush up on macramé and laddering.

Working Hard in 2015!

Well, 2014 went out with a bang at beadshop.com! Thank you for helping us make it such a success. We are all working hard to get your orders out, and we thought you might like to peek behind the curtain, so to speak.

Here, Beckie and Colette work on filling and packaging orders. We make sure to include a personal note in every order filled. Then we hand wrap the items in tissue paper before passing them to Savanna for shipping.

After that, Savanna makes sure those beautifully wrapped pieces are shipped right to your door. Some days, you can't even see her sitting at her desk behind the piles and piles of packages. 

We are so lucky to have such an amazing order fulfillment team!
