***Magatama Fringe Necklace Kit-Chocolate with Patina Iris
I call this the Kumihimo Magatama Fringe Necklace because the Magatama beads look like fringe! This necklace is unique because the beads on the inner edge are different from the beads on the outer edge. To achieve this design element, the beads are strung in a particular sequence. The style of this necklace is well suited for shorter lengths however, I have provided enough material in the kit to make up to a 20” necklace. The instructions are written for the longest length (20”) but you can easily adjust the size to any length simply by choosing where you want to finish & trim the end sections.You will need: Kumihimo Disk 8 Bobbins Scissors Tape Measure Needle and Thread Glue (like Weldbond). You should know: Kumihimo Round Braid (Kongoh Gumi) and how to drop beads. If you need some quick tips on threading beads on satin cord and braiding with beads check out Kumihimo Tips #10 & #14.
