The Grandiose Kumihimo 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 a supply list, detailed written instructions, and stringing charts for four different finished necklace lengths: approximately 18", 20", 22" and 24".  

This is not a kit.  No materials are included.  

Three layers of large Czech glass petals command your attention while the flat-back design keeps this stunning necklace comfortably in place on your chest. Grandiose is wonderfully supple and drapes beautifully thanks to a clever trick in the stringing plan.

Grandiose 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 is not recommend for a first beaded kumihimo project The following elements make Grandiose more appropriate for braiders with some previous beaded kumihimo experience:

  • asymmetrical counted pattern
  • asymmetrical bead shape

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.  Please allow your own creativity to guide you to your own unique color palette.

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 quantities are listed as a range because the instructions include stringing charts for multiple sizes.
