Stripes + Explosion = Striplosion Beads!

striplotion group 2

I can not begin to tell you how much fun I had working on this new collection of beads. It started last week. I was messing around with trying to design a headpin with a swirly pattern. Instantly, I was hooked. One headpin led to another and that led to, of all things, stripes. These are so so incredibly fun. They kinda remind me of the infamous "Kissmyassite" we coined at Bead Fest last summer, but in the best possible ways. I make no assuptions about these beads being naturally occuring... they are very much handmade, by yours truly.

I hope you like the beads. I know I do!! There are nine items in total. Lots of headpins, hollows, sprees, nuggets, rounds, and even a KABOCHON. Oh yeah! You are going to see some new designs from me with similar beads in the coming weeks. I can't wait to share them with you. Until then, happy Bead Box browsing!

I'd love to see how you use the headpins. I see them all over the place but never how to use them.

Really love the colours on these and those headpins are to die for!
I made myself some earrings using your book! It is such an inspiring book with easy to follow steps. I posted a pic on my blog if you want to see how they turned out.
