Poppy Picking- August 2022
Custom Mix of Miyuki 8/0 Round Rocailles
For 2022's Monthly Mixes we are focusing our inspiration on birth month flowers...for August we went with one of our faves: the Poppy.
When we thought of poppies we thought of just HOW many colors they come in...classic red, of course! Orange, yellow, creamy whites, even blue! Honestly? We couldn't decide! But while pondering the possibilities, Drea came across these stunning Wild Rose Czech Glass beads, and an idea was born: Pick Your Poppy.
Kate quickly came up with a luscious blend of greens, Drea picked a rainbow of Czech Flowers, and we have a pretty cool combo, we think!!
This mix is a blend of 8/0 Round Rocailles. We definitely want to see what you create with this mix plus the new Wild Rose beads...perhaps a Float or Dancer Earrings with a flower at the center? A Zen of Stringing would also be so cool! You can find many ideas of what we’ve done with past Monthly Mixes here.
