The Best of FB Live...Across Cultures

It's Wednesday! And it's our final Wednesday of the FB Live Hiatus! As you know, we've taken a break with our FB Lives and have been re-posting some oldies-but-goodies instead, along with our usual special sale and some new ideas for the project. 

This week, let's take a peek back at Across Cultures. This is a classic project originally created by Janice using trade beads, antique buttons, and charms galore...unfortunately, as is the nature of the products, we can't get our hands on many of the ingredients anymore. Grace swooped in last year to update the project, using 6/0 Miyukis in place of the hard-to-get Padres, and using other contemporary components as well. I loved the update, but I miss the Tribal I'm bringing it back with three new colorways to inspire, using our new Popcorn Padres and some of our newer tribal and trade pieces alongside the more contemporary looks that Grace brought in: Czech Rollers, charms, and new TierraCast beads and components.

Happy beading!
