Rivoli or ravioli?

often, we recieve phone calls asking if we carry ravioli stones.... so we ask ravioli?? isn't that pasta? do you mean rivoli ? and the answer to that is YES!

rivoli is a fancy stone cut made by swarovski it is one of the most multi purpose of all stones and is available in many sizes and colors ..
another unknown fact is: it is one of the least expensive of the fancy stone line for how much effect it gives off...

I have to also say.. when you purchase a rivoli stone, make sure that it is Swarovski crystallized Elements... not czech or china made... how can you tell? simply hold the piece in between your pointer and thumb fingers and gently spin the rivoli. you will see the facets dance.. other manufactures of this shape cannot reproduce the amazing facets that swarovski crystallized elements does.
FYI... thes little beauties are available in standard colors along with aftermarket coatings like chili pepper , verde, vitrail medium etc.. we stock a lovely assortment of colors and sizes.. come in and see the collection.

Welcome to the new and hopefully improved Creations By You information superhighway
way back in April, I started playing around with blogspot but as you can see, just 2 posts since... ( I am still practicing ! ) time is always a factor... there is only 24 hours in a day.. I need a minimim of 30!
first of all we have an addition to the Creations By You family, I now have the cutest one month old grandson his name is Ryan.. he and my daughter live with me so that means I am a full time grandma and when he wakes up at 3:30 am to drink a bottle... I wake up to make sure his mother doesn't fall asleep feeding him... so I have a broken sleep pattern. by the time I have a chance to do some writing... I am much too sleepy I suppose God created coffee for the very reason of helping us keep awake when we need to or even just to use as a personality adjustment...for those of us who are ADD which coffee helps also. my coffee intake is now 3-5 cups :( I save it to survive the day...
enough of me... you must come to the shop and meet Sabrina who is a very sassy kitty she loves sparkly goodies .. she even has a rhinestone collar and eyes! she only eats Crystal I promise and no litter box ... she is our newest bead charm kit.
