January 30 - 3 New Colors - Kumihimo Bracelet Kits with Lily Petal Bead Edges
Miyuki Duracoat Metallic Beads Central Rib, with
100% Nylon Ribbon, C-Lon Bead Cord, & Peyote Sleeves
These kits are similar to the Copper River kits listed below, but instead of braiding with Rayon Boucle, I got a chance to play around with the 100% Nylon Ribbon. This ribbon braids beautifully, and it has a gorgeous sheen. There are other differences, but the pattern is similar, beads on the edges and top rib, with no beads right against the wrist, making this bracelet incredibly comfortable. > Kumihimo Bracelet Kits with Lily Petal Bead Edge
January 20 - 'Copper River' New Bead Edges & Bead Ridge Kumihimo Bracelet Kits
with Czech Lily Petals, Toho Hybrid Apollos, Rayon Bouclé, C-Lon Bead Cord, & Peyote Sleeves
This kit combines fabulous hand dyed rayon bouclé yarn that shift slowly from denim blue to rust, C-Lon Bead Cord, gorgeous metallic and luminous finish on the Lily Petal Czech bead edges, and brilliant copper toned Hybrid Apollo Toho beads on the top ridge. The yarn and Toho beads are no longer available, so this kit is available in limited quantities.
