"4th of July" Painting with Beads Necklace Kit" - 4th of July
This is an oldie but goodie. This is part of the painting with Beads Collection that is braided with 6/0 seed beads. The beaded portion of the necklace is approximately 17″ and the overall length can be lengthened or shortened either by eliminating a section of color (shorter option) and a longer option is determined by the placement of your end caps on the braided sections at the start and finish of the braid. You will need: Kumihimo Disk, 8 Bobbins, Scissors, Tape Measure, Needle and Thread, Glue (like Weldbond). You should know: Kumihimo Round Braid (Kongoh Gumi), you need to know how to “drop” beads. Check out Kumihimo Tip #14.
