Have ever been frustrated because you only needed a few beads but had to buy a package, giving you what seems like a lifetime supply?
Have you ever wished that you could buy a small amount of beads in related colors and finishes to give depth to your beading?
Sundance has come to your rescue with their Color Vibe Collections.
Available in many colors, these packages contain some, 20 or fewer, of most types of beads they carry in several related colors. In the package I used for the flower centers, I had
- Size 14 beads in three colors
- Size 11 beads in two colors
- Size 8 beads in two colors
- Size 6 beads in one color
- Two lengths of bugle beads
This color, Old Lace, has mostly white or clear with some gold, cream, and silver. There are plenty of other combinations from gold, to a lovely flaming red-orange to blue and green. There are also some assortments that have several colors.
I can see these assortments as being wonderful choices when you want not too many of one color but are willing to use an assortment.
However, if like me, you’re prone to dropping beads, these might not be the best choice. Small as these areas were,I ran out of gold beads just before I finished. If you’re not certain the amounts will be enough buy more than one packet.
Also check your project before using these beads.If you need more than a dozen of one color, gp another route.
But if you need a few beads or want to use related colors, these assortments are fantastic!
