Project and Sample by Kate Richbourg

Stormy silvers, powerful purples, handmade glass…a storm is brewing…
Kate’s bold necklaces send a message of strength and resilience: leather, tribal glass, and a selection of brand new textured metal beads and components are on full display in this recipe for the Storm Series Necklace.

Kate curated this palette as a third colorway after being inspired by our new silver beads…love it!

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.
