We suddenly realized that we had no options on our webpages for you to choose your own Bead Stew custom color combinations. So here is a remedy for that....
For those new to these web pages, you might want to know what are Bead Stew bracelets. We have taken many different sizes and shapes and finishes of the larger beads in a particular theme or colorway, mixed them together, added the Tapestry Braid thread and a special clasp and, together with our own pattern, put it all together for you to knit and wear as a "bouquet" on your wrist.
These bracelets have drops and daggers and megatamas and triangles and round beads (none smaller than 8/0s) and the like -- and often fire polish crystals for extra "bling" --- some with leaves and some without but all enough to create a dense and superbly interesting "fabric" of beads on your thread.
Simple yet oh-so-lovely.
Size 0 needles are suggested, though not included in the kit.
And here is your opportunity to choose whatever custom mix you would like your bracelet to be.
The pictures here are of our versions that you can find elsewhere on our Jewelry Creations pages -- MoonFlowers, Rock Candy, Moonrise on Neptune, and Raspberry Fields Forever. And these are certainly very very very available for you (email me if you have any trouble finding them). We are showing them here simply to give you an idea of what is possible -- let your creative juices flow!
Suppose you would like (as one person did) a Bead Stew Mix with reds and garnets mixed with whites and crystal and blues of all shapes and hues. A lovely combination and her own. Or perhaps a mix of Autumn colors? Or a special mix to match that special dress? Or maybe you would like the darkest blacks interspersed with silvery crystals, for the sophisticated look. We could go on and on. But this page is for you and your ideas.
Let us know your ideas via the "Comments" section as you check out -- this is vital! -- and we will do our best to create per your needs and wants. If we have questions, we'll be in touch.
If you don't specify, we will choose for you.
Every kit contains the beads, the thread, and the clasp.
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.
For the clasp, we will pick one which we feel will go best with your creation -- we have a lot of real beauties to choose from, some simple and some intricate, some gold and some silver. If you have a personal preference, let us know -- otherwise we will allow our imaginations full play here.
Fun fun fun fun! And absolutely lovely...
