"Spot" Beaded Kumihimo Necklace with Turquoise Howlite Donut Pendant (B,R,K))
I just love the Kumihimo "Spot" Beaded Necklace with the Howlite Donut Pendant. Did you know that Howlite Pendant is supposed to bring good luck. So wear it and enjoy it! The beaded pattern is a simple spot pattern. This kit teaches you a great option for attaching a pendant and utilizes the adjustable closure. The shortest length is around 17” and the longest length is 26 1/2” (plus or minus).
