Metapolies™ Banner & Icon Update

Etsy will be reformatting the layout of our stores effective April 5. To get ready for that event, I've redone my banner and store icon. You'll notice I didn't part with my colorful dots! All my current packaging and displays use this dot theme--and besides, I love it!

New banner.

What does "Metapolies™" mean?

It's a made-up word focusing on the two main types of beads and components I make:

METAl + POLymer clay = METAPOLIES!

I pronounce it:  "Meh-TOP-oh-leez." 

The ™ after the name means I've claimed the Trademark for the name.  Please do not use for your own store or products. Thank you!
