Kumihimo Supplies: Your Best Source!
Petite Beaded Necklace Kit
(Color schemes may be mixed for quantity discount)
These kits have the supplies you need to complete a 16-strand necklace and matching bracelet (or a very long necklace) that is heavily beaded with size 8/0 glass seed beads--smaller beads than the "Beaded Necklace Kit" we offer.
Contains: Approx 800 size 8/0 glass seed beads, 4 skeins embroidery floss, Big Eye needle, two end cap/lobster clasp sets, loom setup instructions, end cap attachment steps.
It is assumed that you have a KumiLoom™ (or other kumihimo braiding loom) and 16 bobbins, and that you are familiar with the steps for a kumihimo round braid.
Available kits in three categories:
(1) Contrasting colors (beads a different color from cord beneath)
(2) Matching colors (beads similar color to the cord)
(3) Peacock Feather colors (4 thread colors in a peacock tail feather and blue/green beads)
Contrasting color choices:
- Amber Gloss ABgl over brick
- Light Purple ABgl beads over deep purple
- Lime frost beads over black cord
Matching color choices:
- Pale Seafoam crystal ABgl beads over soft aqua
- Rainbow Grey ABgl beads over matching soft grey
- Dusty Blue AB frost beads over denim blue
- Clear Iridescent Crystal over wedding white
Blue/Green triangle beads with gold iridescence over chartreuse/golden brown/teal/cobalt cords
