Project by Kate Richbourg
Sample by Emily Miller

When Kate got her hands on the latest tribal and trade beads brought to us from one of our African traders this project started turning those creative gears in her head! This earthy mix of greens and browns is sure to inspire, and will look lovely paired with your favorite sweater at a holiday party or wrapped for a friend under their tree!

Check out our Recipe Page for the basics and make your own colorways. Enjoy!

Ingredients list is to the left and easy shopping can be done with the Shop Tab above!

Please join us as our worldwide community gathers on Facebook at 10:30am Pacific Time on December 12th, 2018. It’s so much fun to go live with us and bead together! After the live broadcast the video will be available above.
