****Perlas de Fiesta Beaded Kumihimo Necklace Kit - Kumquat/Turquoise/Red
The Perlas de Fiesta Necklace Kit was inspired by my recent trip to San Miguel de Allende, Mexico where color is vibrant, fun and striking. In this kit you will learn two awesome kumihimo techniques; 1) Starting in the Middle and 2) the Adjustable Closure. The adjustable closure, which I have been using for several years, in alot of my kits, allows you to wear the necklace as short as you would like or as long as 27" or so (depending on braider).
