"8/0 Beaded FUSION-6" Kumihimo Necklace" with Adjustable Closure" - B & W
Okay, I've said it before, but this one is my NEW FAVORITE! I call this design Karen's "Fusion-6" Kumihimo 8/O Beaded Necklace. To achieve the “fusion” of colors, the 6 colors of beads are strung in a particular sequence of colored/patterned sections to create a “fused” look. The Black Pottery Heart Focal comes pre-assembled (patterns on hearts may vary slightly from one to the other - they are handmade). The Heart Pendants are
3-D (not flat).
The adjustable closure allows you to wear the necklace shorter or longer. I have designed this necklace to be worn a little longer. The finished length of the beaded portion is right around 22 1/2" (depending on beads and braider) and the braided tails are about 6′′ on each end. You can wear this necklace as short as 22 1/2′′ and even longer if you like.
Finished Beaded Length: 22 1/2"
Additional length with Adjustable Closure
This bright delight is made up in a combination of Miyuki Opaque seed beads.
Keep in mind, you can also finish this necklace with a 4mm clasp of your choosing. I like the 4mm Acrylic End Cap with this (does not come in kit).
