an open source architectural beadwork project from Kate McKinnon and a worldwide team of innovators
I’ve added a few more bead assortments to the CGB shop. There are now Warm and Cool options for the 9-Bead Delica Assortments ($75 each) and a curated colourway from Kathryn Shriver that lights up a room. We’re on target for our press run this Spring but aren’t likely to get the finished printed and bound books in hand until May (and of course there is no guarantee there won’t be slowdowns out of our control). If you’d rather not wait, and want to exchange a pre-order reservation for a bead kit, it’s no problem! Just use the discount code PREORDER in our shop, and receive a $74 discount on your bead order, and free shipping.
ALL proceeds from bead sales go directly to the CGB Fellowship and Scholarships Fund.
Here is a sample of typical COOL and WARM packs of the 9-bead Delica assortments. Each one comes gift-wrapped in origami paper, with a postcard and an extra bead sample.
I’ve also posted the jewel-toned Brilliant Posy assortment that Kathryn Shriver put together. It’s a stunner, and she translated it into a suite of flower petals – wordcharts included. This kit is $140, and includes several special finishes and a full box of hex-cut 24k gold-plated C501 Delicas (which are incredible to work with) and a few boxes of round join beads to connect flowers and Kaleidocycles.
I’ve got several more coming at the $140 level – two 14-bead colourways from myself and Kamryn Shawron. Thanks to all who have ordered! Shipping is current and we are grateful for your support.
If you’d like to play with Kathryn’s beautiful posy-petal design, six of them make a flower (or a Flower Cycle face). Below is a simple word chart (or click here). Substitute the colours for different effects.
