The Kismet 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 four pages long and includes a supply list, detailed written instructions, and stringing charts for two different finished necklace lengths: approximately 54" measured end-to-end including endcaps, clasp, and tassels (max inner circumference 25 - 28" depending on how/where you tie the knot)

This is not a kit.  No materials are included.  

Kismet is a long lariat necklace featuring intriguingly engraved Czech bicones paired with sparkling crystal bicones to form beaded tassels that flow smoothly from a color-changing beaded kumihimo rope. Coordinating TierraCast endcaps and a magnetic clasp hide behind the neck to simplify putting your necklace on. 

Kismet is a beginner project, but 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 attach a clasp using jump rings

Please download our free Beaded Kumihimo Starter Guide as a reference for these basic skills.  

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.
