Gina’s Picks x Eureka Crystal Beads – December 2021

Hey beautiful! For today’s video I have partnered with Eureka Crystal Beads to bring you “Gina’s Picks” for December 2021! This month’s theme is called Cocoa Confections, which features hues of chocolate brown, pastel pink, golden caramel, and creamy white chocolate. At least three follow-up tutorials will be coming, based on the products you’ll see in the video.

While there are some similarities here to an official ECB collection launch, think of this monthly picks concept as a mini collection, of sorts, in which I select some of my favorite products to highlight for the month, which are curated around a monthly theme. These monthly picks will happen on the months where a ECB collection is not being released, and will bridge the gap between those highly anticipated events.

Neapolitan Roseta Cabochon Beaded Necklace Tutorial

Neapolitan Roseta Cabochon Beaded Necklace 

Two-hole Roseta cabochon beads are once again used as the center of each flower-like beaded component. The beaded flowers also consist of pink and cream MobyDuo beads, and 11/0 and 15/0 round seed beads. These components may be linked together to form a necklace, as show, or even used separately. How about possibly turning one into a beaded ring?!
