Grand Reopening!!

Whew! Where does time go? It seems like just last week it was announced that Magpie Gemstones will be closed for the next couple of months, and here we in the final count down to the Grand Reopening!!

Due to open by August 1st, 2013, Magpie Gemstones has been working hard building a new warehouse, unpacking and stocking,  and updating the website with all the new beads, gemstones and cabochons that had been waiting to be unpacked. With plenty of room to spread out, the gemstones quickly lined the walls.

Besides the new listings which will be going in over the next month, there are still over 200 items listed as close-out in the Sale section to choose from pearls, gemstone beads, carved bone, leather cord and lacing and even copper beads and findings are left! With discounts from 20-50% off, these are a great bargain. And remember, the more you spend, the more you save! Up to 37% off on bulk orders over $1000!

New listings are going in every day. Over the next several weeks, cabochons and beads of all sorts will added to tantalize you, such as this sweet larimar. Did you know the only known source of larimar is the Dominican Republic? How fitting that its colors are such gorgeous blues like the waters of the Caribbean!

This gorgeous pale green cabochon with pale violet veining is stichtite. An uncommon stone, it was originally discovered in 1910 in a mine in Western Tasmania, Australia and named after the manager of the mine, Robert Carl Sticht. I already have an entire necklace created in my head around this stone-can you see the amethyst and green kyanite with it?

Titanium infused druzy is so beautiful with its swirling rainbow colors and sparkly centers! I have a few in my own collection that are just waiting for the perfect wire wrap inspiration to do them justice. Good titanium infused druzy is hard to come by. All too often, if it sounds too good to be true, it probably is. These amazing druzies are beads-yes, beads!

If you're enjoying this little sneak peak, know that you can head on over to Magpie Gemstones and check out the new items as they are being added, such as this amazing Baltic amber. Though the prices aren't visible in the listings until the store officially reopens, you can add items to your "Wish List" after logging in and the prices will show up there!


Sales and Super Sales will pop up periodically and unexpectedly, so make sure you are signed up for the Newsletter so you don't miss the great deals and announcements that will be coming around. And don't forget to keep an eye open to see who will be  the winner of the $200 shopping spree due to be announced in an August Newsletter!

So let the countdown begin, and get your shopping carts ready! Until next time, on behalf of Magpie Gemstones, have a great week!
