Tropic Rain

Project Info:

Level: Beginner

Estimated time: 3-4 hours

Project and Sample by Kate Richbourg

There’s a certain glow just before a tropical rainstorm…a golden yellow hue surrounds the lush greenery of the rainforest and then…the rain comes.
Kate’s powerful necklace sends a message of strength and resilience: leather, tribal glass, and a selection of textured metal beads and components are on full display in this gorgeous piece.

Kate colors outside the lines and creates an innovative, personal necklace with amazing TierraCast components and tribal beads. She pushes the envelope on air with wonderful ideas for almost anything under the sun. Be sure to tune in!

Ingredients list is to the left and easy shopping can be done with the Shop Tab above!
*Please Note: This design uses a Tribal Glass Mix of 3.6x6.5 beads that are no longer available. We suggest using a selection of Matubo 2/0 Czech Glass Beads in their place.

Please join us as our worldwide community gathers on Facebook at 10:30am Pacific Time on May 9th, 2018. It’s so much fun to go live with us and bead together! After the live broadcast the video will be available above.
