Latte is back. This colors has been out of stock in the standard C-Lon Bead Cord size for a very long time. This a to go color when looking for a neutral light brown with a slight warm overtone.

Popsicle Orange has been discontinued in the standard CLC size. I have 9 spools left and C-Lon is sold out, and will not be reordering it. Popsicle Orange is one of the 8 colors added in 2015. That still leave us with many other orange tones available.

March 22, 2024 | Kumihimo Kits with PIP Beads | NEW COLORS

Preciosa PIP beads

PIP beads are simply perfect for kumihimo. I fell in love with these small petal-shaped beads and designed kits with them starting in 2017. As of March 2024, I have added new colors and revisited and updated the tutorials. Many of the colorways are many limited to the PIP beads stock on hand. Czech PIP beads are hard to get and often impossible to reorder due to the high minimum ordering quantities. I hope you will love the new colors as much as I do!

Kumihimo Bracelet Kits

Make 2 bracelets with 2 different bead placements and combinations with the New Perlage Kumihimo Bracelet Duo Kit. The first bracelet has a ridge of rocailles beads on the top and Magatamas on the sides. The back of the braid, which lays against the wrist, has no beads and is very comfortable to wear. The second bracelet has beads all around the braid, and the braided fibers can be seen in peekaboo through the beads.

Large Focal Beads for Kumihimo

January 16, 2024
> New Perlage Colorway |
Kumihimo Necklace Plus Kit

This new colorway named Perlage is classic, light, and neutral, with a bit of fun pop added by the beads... So why the Perlage name? In French, perlage means strings of pearls, but in Italian, it refers to the size and distribution of bubbles in sparkling wines. So, Perlage is the perfect name for this color combination, as the beads reminded me of champagne bubbles while braiding the kit samples.

You can also wear all three bracelets stacked up, as shown in the picture on the right if you get both the Bracelet Duo and the Necklace Plus kits.

> New Colorway | Kumihimo Bracelet Kit

The bracelet made with the Ancient River Kumihimo Kit has a distinctive appearance resembling an ancient artifact discovered in an archeological dig. The colors of the fibers, the etched and matte Lily Petals, the matte finish of the Delicas, along with the seed beads' intermittent sheen all come together to create the bracelet's unique look.

Pantone Color of the Year Versus C-Lon Bead Cord Colors

January 2024
> C-Lon Colors of the Year

Coloro Color of the Year compared to C-Lon Colors

The Color of the Year? Peach Fuzz by Pantone or Apricot Crush by Coloro... Why is it important? Many items will come out this year in these colors. Both colors belong to the same apricot bisque color family. I matched Peach Fuzz with Ginger, Sea Shell, Peach Glow, Tangerine, and Light Copper. For Apricot Crush, I added Copper Rose and substituted Orange, a brighter, darker shade of orange, for the more earth-tone Light Copper.

 

January 2024 > C-Lon Bead Cord Colors compared to the NYFW Spring 2024 New Classics
"Reliable core tones infused with a contemporary edge create new visions of tradition."

In addition to the Color of the Year, Pantone puts out fashion color palettes twice a year. I have already seen an uptick in purchases of C-Lon Bead Cord colors matching the color palettes precisely, especially the New Classics. Is it on purpose or subliminal, planned or accidental, a reflection of these color trends, or do I simply notice it more because I am aware?

For larger pictures and more on these new color trends, check my latest post on the Pantone and Coloro 2024 Color of the Year HERE and on the Pantone NYFW 2024 Spring Colors HERE.
