12-Strand Ridge Spiral Necklace Kit - Sienna, Coffee & Sunshine
I call this the Kumihimo 12 Strand Ridge Spiral Necklace with Beads! It’s a fun twist on the Round Braid and you will enjoy braiding this project. It goes very quickly and it’s always satisfying when you flip over your disk and look at the sweet success of your efforts! The style of this necklace is well suited for many lengths and there is plenty of satin to make this necklace shorter or longer. The instructions are written for a braid 21″ long but with the satin cord supplied in this kit you could make the necklace quite a bit longer by cutting your original lengths longer. On the other hand, if you want a shorter necklace you can adjust the size to shorter length simply by choosing where you want to finish & trim the end sections. This braid is also beautiful as a stand-alone cord without the embellishment of beads. You will need: Kumihimo Disk, 8 Bobbins, Scissors, Tape Measure, Needle and Thread, Glue (I like Weldbond). You should know: Kumihimo Round Braid Basics (Kongoh Gumi) and how to drop beads. If you need a some quick tips for threading beads on satin cord and braiding with beads, check out Kumihimo Tip #10 and Kumihimo Tip #14. While the instructions are written for a disk, they are easily adaptable to the Marudai.
