Free Tip Friday! The Many Moods of Thread...

Thanks so much for tuning in to our latest #FreeTipFriday. As promised here are some notes and photos that you might find helpful from the broadcast.

It was fun chatting about our C-Lon, Skinny Thread Collection and Chinese Knotting Cord 
(also known as CKC).

We started off by chatting about Kate & Grace's pieces that both feature our Called Pi piece from Vintage Finds. It's a great centerpiece for both of these designs.

Kate also shared one of her favorite design inspirations... The world of designer Tony Duquette

Then Kate explored the "Many Moods of Thread." She created a number of color pallets and discussed how changing up the thread in a piece can really influence the overall look.

She shared some of her favorites. The colors of Regular C-Lon she used were: (Top row from left) Navy, Indigo, Charcoal, Gunmetal, Nickel. (Bottom Row from left) Neon Yellow, Chartreuse, Lemongrass, Antique Gold Golden Olive, Lt. Magenta, Cerise, Chinese Coral, Orchid, Fluorescent Hot Pink.

She also shared a future project that she is working on using Regular C-Lon, a variety of her favorite beads and the Jewel Loom

You can see how the different thread colors influence the design.

There are so many threads to choose from. You can find them all in on our website in the Stringing Materials section.

Watch the whole broadcast here and let us know how you like to incorporate thread into your designs.
