****Karen's "FUSION-3" Kumihimo Beaded Leaf Fringe Necklace with Magnetic Clasp - Hematite
The Kumihimo Beaded Petal Fringe Necklace has been redesigned. I call this design Karen's "Fusion-3" Kumihimo Beaded Leaf Fringe Necklace. To achieve the “fusion” of colors, the 3 colors of beads are strung in a particular sequence of colored/patterned sections to create a “fused” look. There are 17 Czech Pressed Glass Leaves.
The finished length of the beaded portion is right around 19" to 19 1/2" (depending on beads and braider) including the magnetic clasp. You can make the necklace a little longer.
You will need: Kumihimo Disk (I recommend the BeadSmith Thick Mini), 8 bobbins, tape measure, scissors, Glue (I use Weldbond Universal). You should know: Kumihimo Round Braid (Kongoh-Gumi) and how to “drop” beads. If you need a braiding with beads refresher check out Kumihimo Tip #14. While the instructions are written for a disk, they are easily adaptable to the Marudai.
