The Caravan Necklace Instructions is a downloadable PDF.  Nothing will be shipped to you.  If you want to print out the instructions, you'll need to have a printer.  You'll have access to the download after you checkout.  You'll need Adobe Acrobat Reader in order to open the file.  The PDF is three pages long and includes nine step-by-step photos for making the necklace.  

Finished length options:  17.5", 20.5", 23.75", 28"

This is not a kit.  No materials are included.  

Caravan is an all-levels project, and assumes you already know the basic kumihimo skills:

  • how to thread a needle
  • how to tie an overhand knot
  • how to set up the disk for braiding
  • how to string beads
  • how drop beads and lock them in place in the braid

Please download our free Beaded Kumihimo Starter Guide as a reference for these basic skills.   

The following supplies and tools are needed to make a Caravan Necklace (not included): 

  • 1ft Soft Flex medium beading wire
  • 14pc 10mm x 11mm engraved Czech bicones
  • 6mm crystal bicones
  • crimp beads
  • cones
  • size 18 Superlon
  • big-eye needle
  • size 8⁰ Japanese seed beads (solid color or bead soup)
  • 8mm TierraCast Palace endcaps
  • TierraCast Starburst magnetic clasp with 4mm jump rings
  • E6000
  • binding threa
  • kumihimo disk
  • 8 weighted bobbins
  • scissors
  • wire cutters
  • chain nose pliers
  • crimping pliers (optional)
  • bent nose pliers
  • bead stopper (optional)
  • bead spinner & bead spinner needle (optional)

The "Pattern Only" option is best for independent beaders either working from their own stash or willing/able to search for their own materials because we do not provide vendor recommendations nor color names/numbers. The supply list is on the first page of each project PDF and includes the type/size of each required component as well as the required quantity. The quantity may be listed as a range if the instructions include stringing charts for multiple sizes. If you would prefer to purchase a complete kit that includes both the instructions and all the materials needed to make a project, please reach out. Depending on stock availability we may be able to make you a kit even if that project isn't currently listed as a kit on our website. (There is a "Contact Us" link at the bottom of this page.)
