Sad news today as *redbalifrog* has discontinued a number of their current charms. The retirement is effective immediately but stores can still sell through their stock. However, since they’re not being produced anymore, once they’re sold out, they’ll be gone for good. There’s a number of charms I like on this list, including two of my favorite locks which I am disappointed to see on the chopping block.
There are more recent and older designs on this list and I’m not sure how Amanda determines what beads to retire. I would think that the locks are popular but I do find the one piece clasps more sturdy. I would highly recommend getting the charms that you have been wanting before they’re no longer available. My recommended retailers are: Redbalifrog US (US), Perlen (Denmark), Oromoda (Italy), and Macrow Exclusive Bead Store (UK) and they have most of these in stock still. How do you feel about this retirement?
