I combined as many seed bead sizes as I possibly could, and chose colors that I’m not likely to use ever again, like hot pink 11/o’s and canary yellow Delicas. There are also lots of destash hex cuts, cubes, some leftover pinch bicones from the Sunrise Collar, and magenta lined E beads (though I barely made a dent in those).
Although this started as a bit of a ‘just do it’ kind of project, I was really excited about all that color, and I’m actually thrilled with how it turned out. The colors are so vibrant and cheerful in their rows, and the rope itself has a great flow. I seriously considered keeping this one for myself, but I thought it would be even more fun to give it away on my ArtFire blog.
Have you had any great design surprises lately?
