Beaded Barcode "LOVE" Kumihimo Necklace- Multi Reds

$ 30.00


Barcode for Love...
This Kumihimo Necklace kit is 100% inspired by my mom and her creation of Jonny's Barcode "Love" Blanket. I love all of the possibilities. Barcoding provides another way to come up with striped patterns. I used a barcode generator to get the barcode for "Love" and then interpreted the barcode into a beaded pattern. Fun & easy!

For the Red Barcode "LOVE" necklace, I took a little creative liberty and added color to the barcoding. I changed the Black barcode stripes all to Red and then chose 5 additional colors that filled in the white barcode stripes. There is no end to the experimenting. 
Th necklace is made up of all 8/0 seed beads. The beaded portion of the necklace measures approximately 19" (depending on beads, braider, tension, etc). You can attach the end caps right next the beads or you can leave some braid showing on either end to make the necklace longer. You could also order an extra package of the main color and add extra beads to each end of the necklace. 
You will need:
- Kumihimo Disk (I use the  Beadsmith THICK Mini and it's great)
- 8 Bobbins (I use the Small EZ Bobbins)
- Scissors
- Tape Measure
- Cord Zapper, Fray Block or Needle & Thread (for finishing ends)
You should know:
- Kumihimo Round Braid (Kongoh Gumi)
- How to drop beads (see Kumihimo Tip #14 if you need a refresher). It's easy.

  • 6 pgks. 8/0 Toho/Miyuki seed bead
  • 1 spool of C-Lon Bead Cord (you will have plenty of extra)
