The Effervescent kit includes

Due to continued supply chain issues, we send 1 binding thread and 1 glue for every four kits ordered.  If you need 1 binding thread and glue for each kit because they're gifts or you're hosting a beading party, just let us know in the order notes and we're happy to send one per kit.

Tools needed to assemble the project (not included)

  • foam kumihimo disk
  • 8 weighted bobbins (~23g each)
  • clip-on center weight (~45g)
  • scissors
  • wire cutters
  • 14 bead stoppers
  • Mighty Crimping Plier (optional)
  • jewelry pliers

A beginner friendly combination of bead stringing and kumhimo, Effervescent features a multi-strand focal section of sparkling Preciosa crystals strung on Soft Flex wire that flows smoothly into a color-changing beaded kumihimo rope. Coordinating TierraCast endcaps and a magnetic clasp finish the design.

Effervescent is a kumihimo kit for all levels. Previous experience with the basic round braid (kongoh gumi) on the foam disk is helpful, but not required. If this is your very first beaded kumihimo project, please review our Beaded Kumihimo Starter Guide before beginning your necklace. As for the crystal beads in the focal area, you'll use basic jewelry making skills like cutting wire and crimping.

Live Effervescent Beading Party May 3rd!

Come bead along with me and Sara Oehler of Soft Flex!  We'll be making an Effervescent necklace live on Facebook & Youtube Wednesday, May 3rd at 3pm Pacific time.

Can I still buy a Effervescent kit if I'm not planning to join the bead along? Absolutely! Like all of our kits, Effervescent comes with detailed step-by-step instructions. The live beading party is a fun virtual get-together, but attendance is totally optional and your kit contains all of the instructions you need to put the necklace together on your own.

Is the bead along a class? No, not really. I'll demo all the key skills, but we're not going to get to everything during our 60 minute time slot. You'll need to refer to the detailed instructions that come with your Effervescent kit (or Pattern Only PDF) for important information like the kumihimo stringing charts. If you've never tried kumihimo this a great way to learn!
