According to my jeweler’s scale, this collection equals over 2500 pieces of premium vintage glass jewels and beads, not including all the tiny stones with no weight. That amounts to less than FOUR CENTS per beautiful jewel! All are absolutely vintage, most crafted in 1950's Europe. You will receive 2.5 lbs. of premium beads, stones and charms, in addition to a few larger bonus pieces. If there are items in my shop you'd like to sample, let me know and I will do my best to include them.

This premium hand-chosen collection includes many items from my shop and many more soon to be listed. On average, 15% to 20% are beads with holes but most are glass gems and rhinestones for gluing, setting, wire-wrapping or embedding into clay.

• Create jewelry, mosaics, collage, mixed-media, magnets or pushpins.
• Embellish a frame, mirror, switch plate, telephone, calculator, lampshade, box or candle jar.
• Transform a greeting card.
• Spell your child’s name out in jewels (glue to a cardboard base) and hang on the wall.
• Add sparkle to a pair of heels or a purse for a glamorous night on the town.
• Use (removable) poster putty to jewel your computer, refrigerator or anything else.
• Fill small organza bags with jewels for unique wedding or party favors.
• Embellish gift-wrap or make your own.
• Fill a centerpiece with jewels and have your guests choose their favorites.
• Host a creative jewels party. Provide a (common to all) background (tile, wood, clay, a shallow box) and have everyone create their own masterpiece. They leave with a memorable keepsake or you have an amazing collaborative art piece to showcase.

• Best all-purpose glue: E-6000. Bamboo skewers make excellent applicators. Roughen or clean the surface before gluing. Remember to use with ventilation.
• Poster putty (goes by many names) is excellent for temporarily holding jewels in place while designing your piece, even on vertical surfaces. Easily removable, re-useable, and an essential material for having around.

Average review
Without exception, this delivery from ‘ShadowMix’ is the most beautiful thing I have ever held in my possession. (Esp the glass intaglios.) The variety in the bulk ShadowMix is tremendous. The quality is exceptional. I can hardly believe my good luck to have found this seller, Susan Gould, on Etsy. She has a keen eye for a beautiful piece of treasure and here she is sharing it with me! The artist herself was a joy to correspond with and the delivery was with me here from overseas within the week. I intend to coming back again and again until I own everything she ever collected. So my fellow buyers; ‘fill your boots!’ From Lorraine, Kildare, Ireland.
