8/0 3-Color Blended Beaded Kumihimo Necklace" - 4th of July
I call this necklace kit the Kumihimo 8/0 3-Color Blended Beaded Necklace. This necklace is made up in 8/0 seed beads and instead of blending with two colors, this necklace utilizes 3 colors. This pattern is written with the adjustable closure so you can wear the necklace longer or shorter. The flexibility in length makes this a very easy necklace to wear with different necklines. To achieve the blended pattern, the beads are strung in a particular sequence of colored/patterned sections. The necklace, as pictured, is designed with 5 sections of patterns. The finished length of the beaded portion about 17″ depending on the beads and the braider. The tails on either end are 6″. This necklace can be worn as short as 17″ or as long as 29″ (give or take). You will need: Kumihimo Disk, 8 bobbins, tape measure, scissors. I suggest the THICK Mini Disk. You should know: Kumihimo Round Braid and how to “drop” beads.
