In the past I have decided against black as a pallet for kits, but there are times I can't resist, and this year Abrege, The Rising Sun and Bird of Paradise all have a black option. I'm hoping to have time to kit up some of the black bird of paradise. I love the cyclamen opal loch rosen and the way the matte black bead sets off it's purple luminescent spine.

In general black is never the favorite colorway, but a recent trip to Florida proved me wrong on that, as this Rising Sun did end up being the favorite kit.

Speaking of Rising Sun's I decided at the eleventh hour to use a different, larger button. Since the orange and teal sample is up at Fusion beads, I was only able to physically re bead the center part, but through the miracle of photoshop, the new directions will have the changed button in them.



I think re beading the sample may have been easier, but I did learn a lot (thanks MIchelle!)

That's amazing how changing the button color just a bit brought the color of different beads to the forefront. Lovely design!

I was hoping you'd teach this at Fusion Beads! Unfortunately for me your class is full and the waiting list is full! Hope you'll make this a kit sometime.
