Beaded Jewelry Kits from Nelkin Designs July 18, 2012 – Posted in: New in Store, Project Ideas

New in the store this week – beaded jewelry kits from Laura Nelkin of Nelkin Designs! Lisa and I fell in love with these at TNNA and quickly snapped up a full inventory of each piece in every colour.  We love the combination of hand-dyed yarns (SweetGeorgia Yarns, Alpaca with a Twist, Jill Draper Makes Stuff, etc.) and thoughtfully chosen coordinating beads.  Each finished piece is beautiful and will add sparkle to any outfit whether it be casual or dressy. I’ve made up a few of the kits now and can vouch for both their ease of use and their fun factor. The beads are strung before you begin any knitting so, once they’re on, your project is totally portable and can be easily pulled out whenever you might find yourself with a few minutes of knitting time on your hands. Each of the kits I made were completed in an evening.

Kits are packaged in organza drawstring pouches that can double as packaging if you decide to gift the finished jewelry. Nice!
