Bead Scoop: Microfiber Faux Suede Lace

While searching online for some black faux suede lace, I found the lace in a total of ten colors at Fire Mountain Beads and Gems. The beautiful blues and greens brought to mind this month's Art Bead Scene challenge theme. Here are two shades that caught my eye and just seem to be calling out to be strung with mermaids and other colorful sea life.

These and other colors can be found online at the Fire Mountain online catalog. If you haven't worked with this cord yet it's worth giving a try. You will be pleasantly surprised at how soft and supple it is and how nicely it drapes. It comes in a consistent width of 3mm, is hand washable, and looks great with crimped cord ends.
