Blended Beaded Necklace Kits with Adjustable Closure 8/0

$ 25.00


I call this the Kumihimo 8/0 Blended Beaded Necklace. It is similar to the 6/0 Blended Beaded Necklace but the beads are smaller and this necklace utilizes the adjustable closure. The necklace, as pictured, is designed with 5 sections of patterns that start with one color and gradually blend into a second color until the second color is the only color. The finished length of the beaded portion about 17″ depending on the beads and the braider.  The tails on either end are 6″. This necklace can be worn as short as 17″ or as long as 29″ (give or take). You will need: Kumihimo Disk (I recommend a new or newer disk with tight slots or the BeadSmith Thick Mini), 8 bobbins, tape measure, scissors. You should know: Kumihimo Round Braid (Kongoh-Gumi) and how to “drop” beads. If you need a braiding with beaded refresher check out Kumihimo Tip #14.  While the instructions are written for a disk, they are easily adaptable to the Marudai.

  • C-Lon Bead Cord
