"Beaded 8/0 Sunset Colorblock" Kumihimo Necklace - Sunset w/ Focal

$ 50.00

Description:

This Kumihimo Beaded Necklace is made up of a palette of soft and pleasing color. The necklace is made up of 8 colors of 8/0 seed beads. The necklace is finished with a 4mm Acrylic Magnetic End Clasp. Happy braiding!

The beaded portion of the necklace measures approximately 24 1/2” (depending on beads, braider, tension, etc) and the Acrylic Magnetic Clasp adds about 1/2" and inch.

 
You will need:
- Kumihimo Disk (I use the  Beadsmith THICK Mini and it's great). 
- 8 Bobbins (I use the Small EZ Bobbins)
- Scissors
- Tape Measure
- Cord Zapper, Fray Block or Needle & Thread (for finishing ends)
- Glue to attach end clasp (I use WeldBond Universal Glue)
 
You should know:
- Kumihimo Round Braid (Kongoh Gumi)
- How to drop beads (see Kumihimo Tip #14 if you need a refresher). It's easy.  

Kit includes:
  • 8/0 Toho/Miyuki seed bead (8 colors)
  • 1 spool of C-Lon Bead Cord (you will have plenty of extra)
  • Handpainted Porcelain Slider Focal Bead
  • 4mm Acrylic Magnetic Clasp
  • Instructions with photos

You can also braid this necklace on a Marudai, however, the instructions are written for the foam disk.
