The Grandiose Bracelet kit includes
- detailed written instructions with stringing charts for six different finished bracelet lengths: approximately 7", 7.5", 8", 8.5", 9" and 9.5"
- 8mm x 7mm Czech glass petal beads
- size 11 Japanese seed beads
- Superlon Micro
- 1.5mm satin Rattail
- big-eye needle
- One-G beading thread (also used as binding thread)
- 6mm stainless steel magnetic endcaps
- size 11 Delica beads
- E6000 glue
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)
Three layers of mini Czech glass petals command your attention while the flat-back design allows this stunning bracelet to comfortably sit on your wrist. The Grandiose Bracelet is wonderfully supple and drapes beautifully thanks to the asymmetrical counted stringing plan.
Grandiose Bracelet is an all levels kumihimo 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 and follow a stringing chart
- how to drop beads and lock them in place in the braid
- how to bind off the ends of your braid
- how to glue on endcaps
- how to read a stringing chart
Grandiose Bracelet is not recommend for a first beaded kumihimo project. The following elements make Grandiose Bracelet more appropriate for braiders with some previous beaded kumihimo experience:
- braiding around a core
- asymmetrical counted pattern
- asymmetrical bead shape
