Cadence features stunning lampwork beads in an eye-catching focal section and gradually transitioning from fire polished to seed beads on the sides.

Cadence is designed as a beautiful skills-building project for beginner-plus and intermediate braiders. We recommend that you are familiar with the contents of our foundational documents Beaded Kumihimo Starter Guide and Understanding the Braid and that you have completed a couple beaded kumihimo projects before starting the Cadence necklace kit.  With the Cadence kit you'll learn how to braid around a core, start and stop the braid to add focal beads, AND how to REVERSE the SPIRAL! How cool is that?
