You can buy a range of Peanut beads in 10g packs. Please select your colour using the drop-down menu above. You can view the colours I have available, in the gallery images.
We have all come across that same problem. You see a bead colour on your screen and think it looks great. So, you order the beads. Then, your pack arrives and the colour is totally different from what you were expecting. You even wonder if the shop just packed the wrong beads by accident…!
The fact is, between camera settings, lighting and different computer screens, it is very hard to convey the true colour of beads in an online setting. So, if you are trying to colour match and you’re not sure what will work, you can order a sample.
I will send you 3 peanut beads (enough to check the colour). Your sample also includes a discount code. So, if you come back here and buy some beads from me, use the discount code, then the cost of your free sample will be refunded against your order.
Terms and Conditions
You can redeem your coupon against any beads, so it does not have to be the same as your sample. For example, if you ordered a sample of pearls, but decided they weren’t right. You could still come back and redeem your sample coupon as you buy some seed beads.
The coupon has no expiry date, but you can only use it once. If you have multiple coupons, you can use them all, but you must add each coupon code separately in your basket.
Coupons cannot be used to get a refund against a pattern or kit.
About Peanut Beads
If you have never used Peanut beads before, they are made in Japan by the Matsuno company. They are similar in size to size 8 seed beads, but are like a peanut shape.
If you want to find out more about peanut beads and how to use them, then this blog is a great place to start.
Patterns using Peanut Beads
I started using these beads a few years ago, so I have now developed a good range of patterns. You can find something to suit all levels. So, I want to offer just a few suggestions here.
They work just like ordinary seed beads, but the shaping makes them sit a little awkwardly. However, it also gives a lovely textured effect to your work.
So, give them a try in all the basic bead-weaving techniques.
Colours and Stock
Just one final piece of admin to deal with before you go! I have very limited colours at the moment, but I will be adding more. So, if there is a colour you particularly want, then please email me and let me know.
You will also see, you can place back orders. So, if a colour is out of stock, I will get it for you as soon as possible. If you have a time limit on this, please also contact me to find out how long the back order will take. I will do all I can to help make sure you have what you need when you need it!
