Bead Lust

Sometimes I seriously love bling and the shinier, the better. Silver lined rocailles come to mind – sparkly and eye-catching. And sometimes, I simply adore low luster beads 💖

I am in bead lust with our new products –Miyuki Delica 11/0, especially the yummy matte colours, Chartreuse Opaque Matte AB (DB0876), Pea Green Opaque Matte (DB0754) and Maroon Opaque Matte (DB0796). But who am I kidding? The newly arrived Delica 11/0 lusters are also oh-so fine.

I have added all sorts of shades and finishes of greens and reds for those upcoming Christmas Projects. Need a fir tree shade of green or a Santa red Delica?.. Filter the color and finish to narrow down your choice.

To balance those teensy size 11/0s, we have many 5×7 cubes as well as carrier beads to facilitate your necklace and bracelet creations – perfect for holiday gifts!! Grab some cubes or carriers, faceted rounds, silver or gold (or both!) spacers, wire, and a multi-strand clasp and voila! You’ll whip up an impressive multi-strand necklace or bracelet in no time!

Speaking of bracelets and gifts, we also have a boho chic, Chakra Bracelet Kit and a charming Seashell Charm Bracelet Kit, both from Jewellery Made By Me.

Hey, what’s your favourite of the new delica colours? Or is there a colour or finish you’re dying to work with that we don’t yet stock? I’d love to hear from you – The Beading Room aims to please (and tickle your bead lust!!)

Fall beading ahead!! Cathy
