This is not a kit. No materials are included.
Effervescent 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
- how to read a stringing chart for counted patterns
Please download our free foundational documents Beaded Kumihimo Starter Guide and Understanding the Braid as a reference for these basic skills.
The following supplies and tools are needed to make an Effervescent Necklace (not included):
- 6ft Soft Flex medium beading wire
- 210 4mm crystal bicones
- crimp beads
- size 18 Superlon
- big-eye needle

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.)
