WHAT'S NEW?
 
New Satin Cord

July 6 - New Ultra Soft Satin Cord

These new ultra soft nylon satin cords are woven with multiple thin nylon cords without an inner cord or core, making them very flexible. They are incredibly soft to the touch yet very strong.

They are currently available only in soft black. As they are made out of nylon, they can be cut and melted with a thread burner making them a great choice for any uses where the cords ends need to be melted.

These new cords will make great pendants and medallion cords, or used them as center cores for braids and kumihimo projects, or use them singly or in multiples of 3 or more as centers for tubular bead crochet ropes.

They come in 3 diameters; 1.1 mm, 1.8 mm , and 2.5 mm.In black only for now.

Shambhala Bracelet Tutorial

July 1 - New Updated Tutorial

This tutorial was one of my first tutorial and it just got a complete update.

It is now an 8 page PDF tutorial available online with over 15 large diagrams and photos making this project easy.

You do not even need to print it, you can look at it on your computer or your iPad.

Two knots are used for this project, the square knot and the overhand knot. Instructions on how how to tie these knots are included in the tutorial.

Check the bead and cord kits available for this project. The kits include Swarovski Crystal Beads, and some include Swarovski Beadelle Pave Beads while they last. The Beadelle Pave Beads have been out of production now for several years, but I still have some on hand.

June 10 - Easy Access to Videos - Now videos are available right on this website without the need to go to YouTube unless you want to access to better control such as full screen, closed captions, access to French subtitles... > Videos

 

June 4 - More about videos - Last night I added close caption subtitles in English (click cc), and French (pour ceux qui ne comprennent pas l'anglais ... cliquez sur cc, puis sur le petit symbole comme une vis à droite, puis sur sous-titres / cc, puis sur French). I plan to add cc subtitles in English and French for all my future videos. Also for anyone who has a hard time hearing my voice over the music background, I uploaded a version of the Turkish Flat Bead Crochet Video called Take 2 - with no music. I appreciate everyone who took the time to leave comments! - Marion

Doing videos is a brand new venture, something I wanted to do for a long time... I had to jump over a few hurdles, mostly in my head. It took me a while to finally get started, but now I love it, so do subscribe to my channel as I have many more videos planned!

February 11 - New Kit Version
Kumihimo Copper River Bracelet

Occasionally a specific bead, a cord, yarn, ribbon or something else used in a kit is no longer available. Then the kit needs to be shelved or it needs to be remade with new material available.

Check this new version - with Halo Blue and Tangerine Lily Petal Beads, plus Czech Copper Crystal 6/0s.

The design includes two designs, one with alternating Lily Petal Beads, the other one with a transition from one bead color to the next. The latter version is shown here on the left.

January 23 - New Comfort Cushion - Perfect for the Lacis Steel Crochet Hooks - Best for Bead Crochet
Crochet HookComfort Cushion

Turn the Lacis crochet hooks handles into comfortable cushioned handles.

I really like the Lacis crochet hooks because you can use a smaller hook than other brands for the same cord size. The actual hook ends have small heads and large indentations for the cord to slide through. This profile, thin head but hook that can handle larger cords without snagging them makes this crochet brand my favorite for tubular bead crochet and bead crochet. But the handles are very thin and really need cushioning.

January 8 - Pantone Color of the Year 2019 compared to C-Lon Bead Cord and More
Living Coral is definitively bright, lively, vibrant yet mellow at the same time. And yes it matches C-Lon Chinese Coral. To lighten it up, add a bit of Pink Lemonade (PL) to the mix. Darken it and make it unforgettable with Poinsetta. Add a bit of Sea Shell or Peach Glow for the bright edges and you capture the coral and clown fish perfectly.

Pantone 2019 color of the Year

> C-Lon Bead Cord (0.5 mm)

> Tex 400 - Heavyweight (0.9 mm)
Look for Chinese Coral, Pink Coral, or Poinsetta, and Sea Shell.

Cleo, the official store mascot!

Cleo got renamed Kumihimo Cleo Cavandoli. She sits on my desk chair in the online store when I am working and keeps me company. She was born March 9th 2011, a triple rescue, we adopted January 2013. She is a 10 lb. foxy doxy with a bit of chihuahua maybe? - Marion
