Dear customer, friend and colleague,

What's new?

New Post on Barefoot Sandals - a perfect summer project.

Merging Silks - Bringing the Kanagawa and Fujix Tire Silk all on the same page has been on my personal to do list for a while. It will make it so much easier to pick just the right shade. My personal silk drawers are now organized this way. I love it!

A new ongoing project comparing C-Lon Bead Cord colors with Kanagawa and Fujix Tire Silk, and with Chinese Knotting Cord Size E.

Over July 4th weekend I designed these out of existing bracelet kits. I wore the top ones made with Miyuki Baroque Pearls and White C-Lon Tex 400 Bead Cord.

Merging Kanagawa & Fujix Tire Silks

Ever since I brought in the Fujix Tire Silk, I have been working with two separate drawers, one with the Kanagawa 1000 Denier Embroidery Silk, and the other with the Fujix Tire #16 Buttonhole Twist. Since the quality of the two brands is equivalent, merging the two brands has been on my wish list for a long time.


But of course a major change like this necessitated reshuffling colors, and updating the jpegs to match the current dye lots.

The silks are now on in several pages, starting with Black & White and ending with Blues > KNK-FJX Silks
