Ming, A Curated Collection
Limited Edition Mix of pearl, stone, glass, and more
Using the oversized lapis disc as both the centerpiece and the source of inspiration, Janice and Kate searched far and wide to create a curated collection that showed off the luscious blues of lapis, crystal, and glass. Add creamy and delicious freshwater pearls in round, coin, and biwa and you have a striking balance of dark and light.
Janice strung a chunky 4-strand design but you can create your own Ming Dynasty-inspired creation in so many different ways. Hole sizes vary on the beads, so Janice chose .014 Softflex to meet all her stringing needs. "By using the 11/0 seed bead, the antique silver 4-strand clasp, and fire polish in silver, I was able to add a vintage, authentic look that makes it hard to place when this necklace was made. That's just what I was hoping for."
This kit is a very limited collection! In the hopes that we can make it available to everyone regardless of where you are in the world, we will be releasing a limited amount in two waves: at 12:01am and again at 9:30am on January 3rd, 2020 (all times Pacific Standard Time).
