The flowers in this banner were created by Lena Gillespie.  Lena is one of the first designers to be given the Cali bead to experiment with.  Clearly, she was able to incorporate the bead into many new unique designs.  If you are feeling inspired by our spring garden, we are pleased to let you know we have attached a fantastic floral earring project PDF for you to try yourself.   It should send you down your own flower making garden path!

Cali Bead – Free Project PDF

NIGHTFALL BRACELET
By Patty McCourt

This is our second post sharing a project you can make yourself with the latest bead available to the beading market – The Cali Bead!

John Bead is thrilled to introduce a new shaped bead to the DIY industry. British/Colombian designer Patty McCourt designed this new bead.  Mrs. McCourt is considered a seed bead designer extraordinaire and named her bead after her hometown.

Cali® is a 3-hole bead made of Czech glass measuring 3×8 mm. It is available in over 50 colors and special effects. This new bead will showcase seed beads spectacularly, which are the staple of designer pieces that illustrate bead-weaving techniques.

Cali® is curved on both sides boasting a double convex surface, which gives the consumer the ability to use it as a spacer or as structural pillar. The creative beader will construct complex shapes, making the possibilities endless.

Create this trendy bracelet with a supple texture using the new 3-hole Cali® beads.
