I'm thrilled to introduce you to my two new jewelry kits... both of these designs are familiar to you, but I've put a new twist on them!
First off, Mudra Cuff in Cotton! I realized it was time to introduce some plant fibers in my jewelry line and spent time this summer testing different cotton and tencel yarns to find the perfect one. The one I chose in the end was one of my favorite weaving yarns back when I did that sort of thing. The mercerized perle cotton wears like iron and has a wonderful sheen so the colors just glisten in it!
Next there is Soutache Set. Soutache, originally released in Creative Knitting Jan 2012, is constructed with 4 strands of beaded I-cord that have been braided together and attached with snap clasps. I wore the set at TNNA last June and was asked constantly if it was available as a kit... it was pretty obvious that it would be the next release! Soutache lends itself well to a kit as it uses 4 different colors of size 8 beads.
Shibui Staccato, a lovely wool/silk fingering yarn. I LOVE the colors that Staccato is available in and I felt like a hand-dye would distract from the rest of the design. There is enough yarn, bead and clasps included in the kit to make up both the necklace and the cuff.
These new kits are shipping to LYS's this week, and are available in my Etsy shop now!
