Cozy Mountain Retreat was the theme of our Great Bead Extravaganza design kit. The kit and the beads we sold to accompany the theme have all sold out, but you can still find the Cozy Mountain Retreat Bead Strand on our site if you hurry! Kristen used a Cozy Mountain bead mix to create a lovely multi-strand necklace on her new episode of Free Spirit Beading.
Sara showed off the collection of beads and beading supplies she curated while she was shopping in Tucson. This was an adventurous kit, Sara became a personal shopper for the people that purchased the kit. Come see what she found on her travels!
Here are some of the videos we loved this week. Kirk, at Space Pickle Designs, gave us an earring demonstration using beads from our Wonderland Design Kit (Sold Out). We watched Rosanna Brafford make Boho earrings, also with our Wonderland jewelry kit. Cassandra, at Beads To Live By, showed us how to make jewelry with her one of her monthly Curated Collections, SilverSilk, and Soft Flex Beading Wire.

Cozy Mountain Necklace Made With Our Exclusive Jesse James Beads Mix
Kristen normally films her weekly installment of Free Spirit Beading on Mondays. She had to postpone a day, this week, to say goodbye to a beloved family member. Her dog, Honey, fell ill on Monday and her family made the decision to send Honey to her rest. Kristen is a trooper and still filmed her episode this week. Beading is good therapy and spending time with her friends and making jewelry was healing. Kristen made a stunning multi-strand necklace that you are definitely going to love!

Tucson Collection Featuring Viva Magenta & Unique Finds Curated By Sara Oehler
Did you grab one of our limited kits from our Tucson visit? The Tucson’s Surprise Collection Featuring Viva Magenta (Sold Out) was a pre-order kit that was made after visiting Tucson and grabbing supplies from vendors we loved. This was a fun kit and very daring. We did not know what was going to be in the kit before we left for Tucson. But we knew we wanted to load it up with beads that were amazing and a colorway that supported Pantone's radiant Color of the Year. Sara revealed the contents of this fabulous kit and made a bracelet with the beading supplies inside and a Sacred Heart Button from our TierraCast collection.
From the Pantone Color Institute:
Pantone’s Color of The Year, Viva Magenta 18-750, vibrates with vim and vigor. It is a shade rooted in nature descending from the red family and expressive of a new signal of strength. Viva Magenta is brave and fearless, a pulsating color whose exuberance promotes a joyous and optimistic celebration, writing a new narrative.
