Karen’s Kumihimo “Painting with Beads” Necklace Kits

April 26, 2012 at 2:18 pm 2 comments

I call this PAINTING WITH BEADS and I love working this way. This is a playful approach to KUMIHIMO and opens all kinds of doors for endless creativity. The necklaces pictured are the first two in a Series of PAINTING WTH BEADS patterns that I am publishing and including in kits. The KUMIHIMO PAINTING WITH BEADS KITS include just the right amount of Toho and Miyuki beeds in just the right colors, magnetic end cap closures, C-Lon Tex 400 and instructions with photographs. The beaded portion of the necklace is approximately 17″ and the overall length can be lengthened or shortened either by eliminating a section of color (shorter option) and a longer option is determined by the placement of your end caps on the braided sections at the start and finish of the braid.
