Well, I have been having a wonderful time with these!
We started with a medley of beads, which one must pre-string randomly across a polyester metallic thread. Then one knits per the directions, to make a most interesting bracelet -- no two ever the same.
That is our original "random" kit.
What we are offering, basically, is a mixture, in a 35 gram container of a mix of beads, in many shapes and sizes. If you choose the "random" color choice, we can't predict what you'll get but it should be interesting.
The photos you see are simply to give you an idea of what is possible -- your kit will likely be totally different.
Each of these kits include the 100% polyester metallic thread and plenty of the Bead Soup mix. Plus a silver tone clasp or a gold tone one. We will choose your thread color for you unless you specify.
If you would like the more customized kit, read on...
We have been having a wonderful time playing with colors. I've been making finished bracelets for sale at a local boutique and have been putting together great combinations in theme colorways. We have tried out greens with a green thread, greens with a gold thread, berry colors with fuchsia thread, topaz and gold and metallics with a copper thread, etc. The possibilities are virtually endless.
We have so many ideas for other combinations and permutations --it is tremendous fun to play with colors.
If you have a particular idea for a predominant colorway or theme you'd like to try, tell us and we will see if we can do it with you. We've had requests for "blues" and for "olives and fuchsias" and for "purples and blues" .... and so on and so on.
Make sure to let us know your preferences in the Comments section on the order form if you choose a specialized kit, customized just for you. And if you choose to leave it up to us, and chose Random for your Kit, be assured we will put together one that will be pleasing.
The pattern is the same as for all of the Bead Soup and Bead Stew Bracelets -- you have the option to get it or not via the drop-down menu.
Note that the kit will not automatically include the pattern.
We offer three options.
I know some of you might already have made other bracelets from us that are made along the same lines, the only real changes being the beads and the colors. If you feel you do not need another pattern, simply choose "No Pattern Needed."
If you would like a printed copy, please make sure the "Pattern" drop-down menu is set to that.
We also can email the pattern to you, though I have to do it manually and usually send it right before I mail the kit (please be patient). Just make sure that drop-down menu is set as you would like before you check out.
And, btw, figure on size 0 needles though gauge is not an important factor here. (The needles are not included in the kit.)
These are fun, fast, and lovely...a great gift idea.
