Cherry Blossom Festival Bead Box – Orchid and Opal X BeadingSchool

Watch the Video

Hey beautiful! Today’s video has been several months in the making, so I am really excited to finally be able to share it with you! I’ve had the privilege of partnering with BeadingSchool AGAIN to curate my very own box of high-quality beading materials from their shop.

The theme of the box is called Cherry Blossom Festival. Expect to see a combination of light and airy shades of pink, peach, and aqua, which are balanced with earthy shades of green, bronze, and cream. Make sure you watch until the end of the video to see four finished pieces which may be made from the contents, and get excited for some new tutorials to come!

Then, we will surround the bezel with layers of lush Mini Dagger beads, and additional seed beads, to produce the look of petals.
