"Beaded 8/0 FUSION-5" Kumihimo Handpainted Porcelain Pointed Flower Pendant with Adjustable Closure - Guava/Pomegranate

$ 58.00

Description:

I had alot of fun designing this series of necklaces with the Handpainted Porcelain Pendants. I am very happy with the fusion of these colors. 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 Pendant is made of porcelain and they are each handpainted. 

This kit teaches a variation of "starting in the middle" and also uses the "half-knot" method for attaching the Pendant. 

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 18" (depending on beads and braider) and the braided tails are about 6
′′ on each end. You can wear this necklace as short as 18′′ and even longer, up to 30, if you like.

This fusion of colors is made up in a combination of Miyuki and Toho 8/0 seed beads.

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). 

You will need: Kumihimo Disk (I recommend the BeadSmith Thick Mini), 9 bobbins, tape measure, scissors. 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.
