I got my kits in the mail so fast! I was so excited I made my first bracelet the day I received them: Moonrise on Neptune. GORGEOUS!! I have of course placed another order for more bracelet kits and can't wait to make them and give them out as gifts. You are the best! – Laurie Evans
I made my first bead stew bracelet in two hours on the plane. It was so gratifying and lovely. I can't wait to make more. – ANnabelle Sargent

We are having such fun with these!
This newest version of our knitted Bead Stew Bracelets (somewhat chunkier version of our Bead Soup Bracelets -- no tiny beads and slightly heavier thread plus lots more daggers and drops and the like) is basically Purples.
We have large tear drops, small tear drops, cubes, triangles, round beads (nothing smaller than 8/0) and drop beads as well as some of the Moon Faces in Crystal AB for contrast. The whole is done on the Amethyst or Silver or Periwinkle thread by Kreinik and polished off with a silver tone "Aztec" toggle clasp.
Every time we put this mix together it changes but always with the same overall "feel."
The pattern is the same as the basic Bead Soup Bracelet -- if you already have it, just choose the option of the kit without the pattern.
Everything is included except the needles -- we like to use size 0s (available on our Hooks and Needles webpage). Some of our more recent clasps are just slightly different but still with the same overall look.
We love it! And (as you can imagine) had great fun coming up for a name for it...
