Kristen finished her summer suncatcher series this week. She wrapped up her amazing craft wire creation with a colorful beaded mushroom. This beautiful beaded suncatcher project is a great introduction to wire work. You can create any shape you like and use leftover beads from other projects. Share the fun with a friend or give your suncatcher to a loved one as a gift! Sara unboxed our Czech Republic Surprise Collection (Sold Out). This collection was hand curated with our friend Jon. We visited his studio in the Czech Republic during a live show and selected the beads our viewers voted for. We added beading wire and surprises. See the finished jewelry Sara made with her collection on her Wednesday video.

Czech Republic Surprise Collection Reveal - Featuring Czech Glass Beads!

In early May of this year, Sara took us on a virtual visit to the Czech Republic. During her live show, we caught up with Jon Kubricht. He joined us from a warehouse in a small town near Železný Brod. Jon helped us put together a stunning mix of Czech Glass Beads. Sara had her live viewers help select the beads that would be in the collection. It was fun watching the collection build itself during the show. Check out the final results as Sara unboxes her collection and creates jewelry with the beads inside!
