Blue Agave Jewelry Set

Last fall I visited the Czech Republic and was able to spend a day on a private tour visiting 3 bead-making factories.

I came home with about 22 lb. of beads!

The royal blue dagger beads were among my finds.

This set was made with Kumihimo braiding and will be part of a collection in the same style.

  • This jewelry set is just spectacular, Patt! Lovely combination of blues. Like the two different matching bracelet designs. What a wonderful trip – I’d love to hear more about it. It sounds dangerous to visit bead making factories! lol 🙂

    I don’t know when this was published but you have accomplished one of my dreams—the tour of a Czech bead factory! And Rena is right—it would be quite dangerous to visit one…hi honey, I just spent all our retirement money but look at all the beautiful beads!
    I also love Kumihimo & have been experimenting using different drops in my braids lately. So much fun to see the end result!
