Product Introduction - Wildly Bohemian Kit!

In the last few months we have had more and more customers asking for kits that combine both Czech glass and TOHO seed beads. Well it took us a little time, but I'm very excited to announce the launch of our new line,Wildly Bohemian Kits!

Look for our ad in the June Bead & Button!
Our kits come in 12 different color combinations and include 10 tubes of TOHO seed beads and a coordinating mix of quality Czech glass beads. This includes holiday themes, basic color palettes and some of today's most popular color combinations.

The Wildly Bohemian Kits were designed with all levels of beaders in mind. Perfect for the beginner who needs a boost to their bead collection, but also great for the advanced beader who may need a jolt of inspiration.

Speaking of inspiration, the selection of beads in each Wildly Bohemian Kit lends it's self to a wide variety of project. From basic stringing to free form peyote the possibilities are endless. I used my kit to show Lisa how to bead embroider a button.

TOHO 3/0 Rounds

I wanted to take a moment to shine a little light on the TOHO 3/0 Round category. Over the last few months we've been quietly adding to the category and now have close to 40 colors and counting.

The TOHO 3/0 Rounds measures about 5.5mm in diameter and you get about 5-6 beads per gram. Because they are a TOHO product they have the same consistency in size and shape that you have come to expect.

I've always found this size perfect for teaching beginners and kids how to use seed beads. The holes are big enough to see, and the size makes them manageable for small hands and people who are new to seed beads. But don't think that's all they are good for, I use them in both bead embroidery and stringing projects. Their jumbo size makes the different colors and finishes look stunning.

So if large seed beads are what your looking for, You'll want to give TOHO 3/0 Round a try.
