Project and Sample by Kate Richbourg

Chris and Kate put their heads together to create a piece that would quickly become his favorite. Chris loved the calming turquoise blue-gray padres we imported from Ghana, with their quirky artisan appeal. Contrasting with these are the dark finishes of the other components...bringing some classic Beadshop faves in a new color. Kate built it from a simple, straightforward design that’s everyday-wearable for the guy in your life. 

*Our Chris’s Favorite Kit, and the sample you see pictured here, contained kit-exclusive tribal beads (turquoise padres, black brass cubes) and black Transitions that you see in the finished bracelet. We think you can substitute a Popcorn Padre in the color of your choice, Black Shadows, Black Evolve or another Transitions color for these if you didn’t purchase the kit…it’ll look great!
