******Karen's "FUSION-5" Kumihimo 8/O Beaded Necklace with Adjustable Closure - Semiglazed 25"
Okay, I've said it before, but this one is my NEW FAVORITE! I call this design Karen's "Fusion-5" Kumihimo 8/O Beaded Necklace. To achieve the “fusion” of colors, the 5 colors of beads are strung in a particular sequence of colored/patterned sections to create a “fused” look.
The adjustable closure allows you to wear the necklace shorter or longer. I have designed this necklace to be worn a little longer. The finished length of the beaded portion is right around 25" (depending on beads and braider) and the braided tails are about 6′′ on each end. You can wear this necklace as short as 25′′ and even longer if you like.
Finished Beaded Length: 25"
Additional length with Adjustable Closure
This necklace is made with Toho's gorgeous Semiglazed 8/o seed beads. The matte finish lends itself to a very rich look.
Keep in mind, you can also finish this necklace with a 4mm clasp of your choosing. I like the 4mm Acrylic End Cap with this (does not come in kit).
