****Beaded Necklace with Boro Glass Focal - Purple Passion
This is another kit in my collection of necklaces called "Painting with Beads". This one is designed with spirals of three color. You'll learn three versatile techniques with this kit: 1) Starting in the middle, 2) Loading beads for a specific design pattern and 3) Attaching Magnetic End Caps. This necklace can be worn as short as 21" and, depending where you attach the magnetic clasp, as long as 25" (small variations possible due to beads, braider and technique). This necklace showcases a gorgeous handmade Boro Glass focal bead. The focal bead has metallic accents that give the bead alot of sizzle.
You will need: Kumihimo Disk (I like to use the Beadsmith THICK Mini), 9 Bobbins, Scissors, Tape Measure, Glue to attach end caps (I use WeldBond available at Ace Hardware and some craft stores), Needle & Thread or Cord Zapper to finish ends.
You should know: Kongoh Gumi braid structure (also called Round Braid) and how to drop beads. If you need a reminder check out Tip #14 Braiding with Beads.
