"***8-strand Kusari Tsunagi Soutache Necklace with Handpainted Sunflower Folk Art Pendant- NEW"

$ 32.00


I love this new necklace kit. The Kusari Tsunagi Braid is absolutely gorgeous and it is a great braid structure to show off the beauty of the Luxury Italian Soutache. The combination of the rich matte Soutache with the bashful glimmer of the Satin cord is a perfect pairing and the Handpainted Sunfower Folk Art Pendant is a sure compliment. The Sunflower Folk Art Pendant is easily strung onto the Soutache braidl. 

The instructions are written for a 24" to 25" necklace (depending on braider differences). You can easily make the neck several inches shorter depending where you attach the end caps . It’s your choice. Some people like a longer necklace and some like their necklaces shorter. There is flexibility.

Kit Includes:
  • Luxury Italian Soutache (6 yards)
  • Kumihimo Nylin Satin Cord (6 yards)
  • Handpainted Sunflower Folk Art Pendant
  • 6mm All-in-one Magnetic Clasp 
  • Instructions with Photos
You will need: Kumihimo Disk (I recommend the BeadSmith Mini), 8 bobbins, tape measure, 1 1/2 oz counterweight, Fray Block (available at craft and fabric stores), sharp scissors and glue to attach magnetic clasp. I use WeldBond Universal Glue but you may use whatever you like. I get WeldBond at Michaels Craft Stores or Ace Hardware (try online). I use teh standard thickness disk. I think a thick disk has too much "grab" on the Soutache. 

You should know: This kit assumes you that you are familiar with and can successfully braid the Kusari Tsunagi Braid. If you aren't sure, I have a great Kusari Tsunagi Instant Download Tutorial on my website. 

While the instructions are written for a disk, they are easily adaptable to the Marudai.
