Instant Download Tutorial - Kumihimo Teardrop Focal Beaded Necklace
The Teardrop Focal Beaded Necklace has been a long time favorite. The beaded focal portion consists of 8/0 & 6/0 seed beads and Lampworked Teardrop Beads. The braided tails, on either end, are made up of C-Lon Tex 400 which has ample weight for a “stand-alone” braid as well as braiding with beads. The finished necklace can be worn as long as 24” or shorter depending on where you end the braided sections and attach the end caps. There are guidelines for making this necklace anywhere from 16” long to 24” long. The longer the braided lengths on either side of the Teardrop focal portion, the longer the necklace.
Since this is a pattern only, it is up to the maker to choose colors for all components. Following are links to the items I have used to create my samples:
C-Lon Tex 400
6/0 Seed Beads
8/0 Seed Beads
4mm Magnetic Clasp
Unicorne Beads (Lampworked Teardrop Beads)
