Cluster Bead Kongoh Gumi Necklace Kit - Red & Turquoise
This necklace is a super fun, quick & easy to make. It is made of 8 strands of Petite Satin Cord with 6/0 Seed Beads. The style of this necklace is well suited for shorter lengths however I have provided enough material in the kit to make up to a 20″ necklace; my preference is closer to 17″. The instructions are written for the longest length (20″) but you can easily adjust the size to any length simply by choosing the length at which you want to stitch , wrap and cut your cord ends before attaching the end caps. Read carefully, cut your cord lengths accurately and you will have a fun and easy time making this attractive necklace. You can also make bracelets using the same technique. You will need: Kumihimo Disk, 8 Bobbins, Scissors, Tape Measure Needle and Thread, Glue (like Weldbond). You should know: Kumihimo Round Braid (Kongoh Gumi) and how to drop beads.
