****Beaded Colorblock Bauble & Leaf Necklace Kit with Acrylic Magnetic Clasp- Luster Turquoise

$ 47.00

The Kumihimo Beaded Colorblock Bauble & Leaf Necklace is alot of fun. 
The Kumihimo Beaded Colorblock Bauble & Leaf Necklace is designed using 4 colors in a colorblock design. The center focal is a combination of “nested” seed beads, Baubles and Czech Pressed Glass Leaves. You will have fun learning the  nested bead technique which allows the smaller 8/o seeds beads to fill in the spaces around the larger Bauble & Leaf beads. This necklace is finished with an acrylic magnetic clasp. The beaded portion of the necklace, from one end to the other, is approximately 21” long and the clasp adds about 1/2” or so if the clasp is butted adjacent to the beads with no cord showing. If you want the necklace a little longer, you can attach the clasp further out on the cord ends.

Kit includes:
- 24 Baubles (12 of each color)
- 24 Czech Pressed Glass Leaves
- 1 spool C-Lon Beadcord
- 4 colors of 8/0 Toho / Miyuki Seed Beads
- Acrylic Magnetic Clasp
- Wide Eye Needle
- Instructions with Photos
