******Karen's "FUSION-5" Kumihimo 8/O 4th of July Necklace with Adjustable Closure
Okay, I've said it before, but this one is my NEW FAVORITES! I call this design Karen's "Fusion-5" Kumihimo 8/O Beaded Necklace. To achieve the “fusion” of colors, the 5 colors of beads are strung in a particular sequence of colored/patterned sections to create a “fused” look.
The adjustable closure allows you to wear the necklace shorter or longer. I have designed this necklace to be worn a little longer. The finished length of the beaded portion is right around 24 1/2" (depending on beads and braider) and the braided tails are about 65′ on each end. You can wear this necklace as short as 24 1/2′′ and even longer if you like.
Finished Beaded Length: 24 1/2"
Additional length with Adjustable Closure
This bright delight is made up in a combination of Miyuki and Toho Opaque and Semiglazed seed beads.
Keep in mind, you can also finish this necklace with a 4mm clasp of your choosing. I like the 4mm Acrylic End Cap with this (does not come in kit).
