So what makes the Darling Bouquet so darling? Two dozen light, airy, translucent acrylic flowers are bound together in a tidy bouquet topped with yet another flower that mimics the way fresh-cut flowers are wrapped up in paper at the florist's.
It took quite a bit of trial and error to find the right combination of flowers and just the right stringing order so that our bouquet has that lovely compact round shape. Flower arranging was a hobby of mine for many years, so I had a very specific aesthetic in mind. Of course, your bouquet will go together perfectly the first try since you'll have the benefit of the detailed step-by-step instructions I wrote for you. With photos, too, of course!

Our Darling Bouquet hangs from a petite braid of sparkling fire polished beads and Japanese seed beads. For added asymmetrical flourish, one side of the necklace features a contrast swirl. We complete the necklace with stainless steel magnetic endcaps hidden beneath coordinating peyote stitch endcaps for a bespoke look.

Darling Bouquet is a kumihimo kit for all levels, but because of the size 11 seed beads we strongly recommend that you have some previous beaded kumihimo experience before starting this kit. If this is your very first beaded kumihimo project, please review our Beaded Kumihimo Starter Guide before beginning your necklace. As for the floating beads in the focal area, you'll use basic jewelry making skills like cutting wire and crimping. 

The Darling Bouquet kit includes: detailed step-by-step written instructions, acrylic flower beads, silver-plated or copper-plated ball headpins, Preciosa crystal bicones, Soft Flex beading wire, crimp bead, Japanese seed beads, Superlon braiding cord, stainless steel magnetic endcaps, big-eye needle, binding thread, and E6000.  

Max finished length:  27"

Techniques used:  kumihimo (all levels) and basic jewelry making (beginner)

You’ll need the following tools (not included) to complete the project: foam kumihimo disk (regular 1/2″ thickness), 8 weighted bobbins (~23g each), clip-on center weight (~45g), scissors, wire cutters, mighty crimping plier, 1.5mm bail-making plier.
