Project Map

Project by Janice Parsons
Sample by Kate Richbourg

Originally a kit, Kate created each sample with the beauty of Tahoe in mind. California Poppy is a collection of weathered reds, butternut orange, soft yellows, and gold tones reminiscent of the unmistakable poppy flower! Leather, beads, and crimps...such a simple recipe with such outstanding results! Tahoe, one of our classic designs, gets a makeover today with Kate's curated tribal mixes (a kit-exclusive) in three limited-edition kit colorways.

Taking cues from the scenery around the beloved Lake Tahoe that inspired this project so many years ago, Kate hand-selected three colorways for us. This warm and inviting palette, California Poppy, takes its name from the California state flower. Fields of red and gold tones take over when the poppies are in bloom, an incredible sight to see. A blend of Gooseberry and Asana beads from Ghana make up this curated bead mix, which will look stunning strung on and surrounded by the Natural Red leather Kate hand-picked especially for this kit.
