A Custom Mix of Beads
A native New Englander, Drea grew up visiting the mountains of New Hampshire often, where the Presidential Range of the White Mountains looms large over curving highways through lush and wild woods. Cold, clear rivers and creeks crisscross the terrain, making a fun spot to cool down on a hot summer’s day or for a family of moose or bear to pause for a drink. One spot in particular has captured Drea’s heart, a place she still visits annually along with family and friends: rustic cabins sit in a semi-circle near the main roadway, set between two rocky and cheerful babbling brooks. Follow a path through a meadow behind the cabins and into the woods and you’ll find the real treasure: the woods open up to reveal a hidden waterfall, with giant granite rocks in shades of grey, brown, and pink, surrounded by a canopy of evergreens and birch.
This mix, Mountain Glow, is a blend of shapes and colors that conjure up memories of campfires, swimming holes, and tree climbing. Every bead was chosen with care for its color, size, and shape. Because this is a limited-edition mix, we recommend that you purchase it early in July as they go fast! If you were to purchase the beads separately, the cost would be more than $55!
