Lots of Pips Kumihimo Bracelet Kit - Cobalt Luster/Turquoise/Azure & Teal
About this Bracelet: This bracelet is inspired by my Edge Bead Necklace kit but with “all beads”. The bracelet is made up of a beaded rope of 8/0 seed beads, Pip beads on the edges and a “spine” of baubles. The side closest to your wrist is “flat” so the bracelet snugs up nicely on your wrist. The instructions are written to make a beaded section abut 7” long. You can add length by adding more beads or attaching the ends caps further out on the braided tails at the start and finish of the bracelet. You will need to size according to your wrist so check frequently when you are nearing the end! There are some extra beads in the kit! Read the insert for more Sizing Tips!
