Instant Download Tutorial Beaded - Kumihimo Bauble & Leaf Necklace with Adjustable Closure
The Kumihimo Beaded Bauble & Leaf Necklace is alot of fun. I created this necklace with three different areas of design. First, look at the "fiber only" braided lengths. I chose C-Lon colors to enhance the colors of the beads and a pattern, I call the "Double Wide Zig Zag", that adds some flair without being distracting. Next, there are sections with all 8/0 seed beads and in the middle there is the Bauble & Leaf Focal detail. Within the Bauble & Leaf focal detail, I have used my nested bead technique which allows the small seed beads to fill all the spots around the larger Bauble & Leaf Beads. The adjustable closure, which I have been using for several years in alot of my kits, allows you to wear the necklace as short as you would like or as long as 28" or so (depending on braider).
Since this is a pattern only, it is up to the maker to choose colors for all components. Following are links to some of the items I have used to create my sample:
C-Lon Bead Cord
8/0 Seed Beads
Barrel Bead for Adjustable Closure
Czech Pressed Glass Leaves
Kumihimo Thick Foam Disk
