www.mobile-boutique.com was founded around 2001, when the owner couldn't find the right style of bead to her liking. After a long search, she decided to take matters into her own hands, armed with an Engineering degree and importing skills, the beads were mass-produced to what she liked. Since, the company has grown leaps and bounds, but the customer support is still there. This company takes pride in not just offering wonderful beads, but also offering an online friend. The owner, to this day, still answers the phones and e-mails personally and continues to write an online newsletter to all that sign up, with a personality all it's own.
The 2 hole slider beads are what founded www.mobile-boutique.com, these are unique cast metal beads that typically have rhinestones, crystals, enamel and texture to them. They make wonderful focal beads, but also can be used in a variety of designs, as shown on the site's project pages. The slider beads are a great addition to any beading creation, simple to use and add just that added touch that is needed.
The fold over magnetic clasp concept came next. As a jewelry designer, the clasp is one of the most important parts of the beading masterpiece!
The fold over magnetic clasps will not pick up your fork or fall off. With the mechanical mechanism (remember, engineer?!?), there are two ways this clasp stays put, the magnet and the fold over hinge design, so no more worries. And, they are so easy to use!! Flip up the "lid" and slide over the loop and shut. Elderly love them, however, they are not safe for people with pace makers or around small children, do to the magnets.
Watch faces for beading were the next obvious, due to the 2 hole slider beads lending themselves to watch making. Watches made from the slider beads can be done in a matter of minutes! And, they turn out gorgeous. Depending on what one puts in between the slider beads, one could use a couple from a package in 2 or 3 designs and they all would have unique qualities!
Overall, www.mobile-boutique.com is a wonderful online source for beading supplies and materials. The selection of 2 hole slider beads, fold over clasps, charms and watch faces for beading cannot be matched. This company has been around for many years and sticks to the core values of the original concept, be unique and offer products that are hard to find when coming up with a beading idea.
