Sakura Skies- March 2020
Custom Mix of Miyuki 6/0, 8/0 and Bugle Beads
Like looking up through the branches and blossoms at a clear blue sky...ahh! March is Cherry Blossom month in Japan, and Jordan found inspiration from these iconic trees for our March Monthly Mix. Most of us “think green” in March because of St. Patrick’s Day, but this point of view, looking to the Far East, is refreshing.
Each mix has been curated for beauty and ease in project development; being a collection of 6/0 and 8/0 seed beads with holes of 1.0mm and larger, you have so many options to string and design. Adding the Bugle Beads makes it a perfect place to start a Brick Stitch earring (or heart!) or add to a Color Study. Try creating something special using our Kimono Cord, which is a natural match. You can find ideas of what we’ve done with past Monthly Mixes here.
Because this is a limited-edition mix, we recommend you purchase this at the beginning of the month…they go fast! If you would like to recreate the mix, the beads Jordan used are:
- 8-132FR Matte Transparent Light Topaz AB
- 8-131FR Matte Crystal AB
- 8-4238 Duracoat Silver Lined Dyed Paris Pink
- 8-355 Hot Pink Lined Crystal AB
- 8-555 Dyed Pale Pink Silver Lined Alabaster
- 6-272 Pink Lined Crystal AB
- 6-524 Sky Blue Ceylon
- BGL2-2005 Matte Metallic Dark Raspberry
If you were to purchase all the beads separately, the cost would be more than $34! Grab your mix while it’s available and have a wonderful March!
Sold by the tube of 20-22 grams. Mix may vary slightly from the photograph.
