Sunday classes for July posted

Check out the Sunday classes page for upcoming July projects. We have some really cool stuff going, including a Saturday Heidi Kummli class. Several of these are filling up rapidly, so call in soon if you wish to attend!

Note that there will be no free class on Saturday, 7/20, as we will be setting up the table for Heidi’s students.

Nomad will be closed on Thursday, July 4th, for a day of well-deserved rest, bad summer movies and barbecue. We will be open for the entire following weekend.


Wow!  this is pretty exciting, having our own blog and all.  Summer is finally here – we are enjoying the sunlight through the windows and all the visitors from out of town stopping by to check out our beads.

We have lots of great colors for summer in glass,  gemstones, pearls and semi-precious stones.  It’s a wonderful time to put together mixed strands to wear with casual clothes and your tan (if you’ve got one).  Ask us if you’re not sure how to combine textures and colors.

Just arrived:  the summer copy of Jewelry Affaire – chock full of interesting and innovative ideas for jewelry making.  Why just string beads when you can try all this other stuff?  Always an inspiration to me.

Also new in the store:  lampwork beads from our own Phyllis Kenyon, a Boulder resident who makes exquisite beads using borosilicate glass.  Also, we have lampwork beads from Casey Schell of Castle Rock.  The girls will not be doing any shows until the fall and have agreed to let us have their beads for the summer.  Make something completely unique using these fabulous hand-made beads.


This coming weekend, June 29th & 30th, 2013, Sat. 10a-7p, Sun. 11a-5p , don’t miss Firefly Handmade at the Twenty-Ninth Street Mall.  There will be 90+ indie-craft artisans, make & take and children’s craft tent, food trucks & more!  Visit their site for more details.
