"Beaded 8/0 Colorblock Necklace with Ceramic Focal Beads "- THB - Terracotta
This is another kit in my collection of necklaces called "Painting with Beads". This one is designed with colorblocking and spots. You'll learn three versatile techniques with this kit: 1) Starting in the middle, 2) Loading beads for a specific design pattern and 3) Attaching Magnetic End Caps. This necklace is designed with 18 "sections" of colorblocking with a contrasting spots. The finished necklace is about 24 1/2" or as short as you like (just use less beads). This necklace showcases 3 Ceramic Beads spaced with 2 Ceramic Spacer Beads.
You will need: Kumihimo Disk (I like to use the Beadsmith THICK Mini), 9 Bobbins, Scissors, Tape Measure, Glue to attach end caps (I use WeldBond available at Ace Hardware and some craft stores), Needle & Thread, Cord Zapper or Fray Black to finish ends.
You should know: Kongoh Gumi braid structure (also called Round Braid) and how to drop beads. If you need a reminder check out Tip #14 Braiding with Beads.
