8-strand Christmas - Holiday Kusari Tsunagi Edge Bead Necklace Kit
This is a new holiday project for you! A Red and White Petite Satin Braid flanked with Holiday Green seed bead edges is a perfect for the holidays.
The braid in this necklace kit is the Kusari
Tsunagi. It is an 8-strand round, chained braid. This is a must do kit, however, you must be familiar with the Kusari Tsunagi braid. If you need to learn the Kusari Tsunagi braid, click here for an excellent 14-page tutorial.
I have provided enough material in the kit to make up to a 22" necklace (depending on braiders). This is a fantastic technique to use for bracelets as well.
You will need: Kumihimo Disk (I use the standard thickness), 8 Bobbins, Scissors, Tape Measure, Fray Block, Glue (I like Weldbond), Counterweight (I use about 40 grams).
