Powder Horn Trading Company?

  • Lots of great strands of  glass beads in all colors and sizes. Be sure to check out the new flower and leaf beads with summer projects in mind!
  • Need more bead storage to  go? We have a great new bead tube tower that holds 69 large tubes of  beads and 138 smaller tubes... or a combination of both sizes. This is a neat zippered, folding case that goes with you when you want to travel, bead at a friend's house, or work on a project in the summer sunshine.  All of your tubes are at quick fingertip access, whether it lays flat or stands up.
  • Dapping Blocks for your  metalworking. Make 6 different domed sizes from your metal blanks with  the wooden blocks, and even more in the metal blocks. We have the  dapping punches to go along with them, too. These are a must have for  making dimensional shaped earrings, charms, and pendants.
