******Kumihimo Beaded Swirl Necklace with Black Pottery Crescent Pendant - Brick/Turquoise
About this Necklace: I had alot of fun creating this necklace kit. There are five solid swirls and one “dotted” swirl. Each side of the necklace is braided separately starting at the pendant and working out to the ends. From one end of the beaded braid to the other (including the crescent pendant) is about 18 1/2” inches. The braided cords at either end are each 6” plus beaded tassel. The necklace features the adjustable closure & can be worn as short as 18 1/2” or as long as 30” (give or take). It is imperative that every single bead is threaded per the pattern & make sure to pay attention to the starting position of the bobbins before braiding with beads. Take your time.
The Black Pottery Crescent Pendants are very special. I worked with an artist in Oaxaca, Mexico and had him make them for my Kumihimo necklaces. Each piece was wrapped with care and carefully tucked in my luggage for the trip home with me and eventually to you. Enjoy!
