Get out your Kumihimo Rayon Gimp and Christmas Lights. This is one fun Holiday necklace. The Kumihimo Rayon Gimp has fabulous texture with a hint of color variegation. And the Silver-Lined Miyuki Green Seed Beads look like they are plugged in - they sparkle! Dress it up or dress it down. This Holiday necklace can be worn anytime.

The braid in this necklace kit is the Kusari Tsunagi. It is an 8-strand round, chained braid. This is a must do kit, however, you must be familiar with the Kusari Tsunagi braid. If you need to learn the Kusari Tsunagi braid, click here for an excellent 14-page tutorial.
I have provided enough material in the kit to make up to a 24" necklace (depending on braiders).
