Cherry Blossom Beading Design Challenge Kit Reveal

Current Sale

Every month, we create a new beading kit with a new theme. The newest kit is available now at We reveal our kits on the last Wednesday of the following month. Then, it is your turn to design and share your projects into our Very Important Beading Studio Facebook Group.

If you'd like to join us in the design challenge next month, buy our latest kit and challenge yourself to try something new and unexpected. If you are new to beading, this kit comes with findings, beads, wire, and surprises.

Our kits are great for skill building. We want our kits to feel challenging. We want them to be accessible for beginners and advanced designers alike, but we love to throw in elements that may seem difficult to test our beaders skills and make them think out of the box. We think jewelry is great when it is easy. But when you really have to engage your mind and process your materials and tools, we think that your jewelry has the potential to be life changing.

Our kits may be inspired by a colorway or theme, but they are meant to be creative interpretations. Imagination and innovation do not follow the rules. Expect the unexpected.

Supplies are very limited. Don’t miss out!
