The back strap features comfortable, size 8 seed beads braided into a beaded rope. The front and back are connected with super strong magnetic endcaps and the joins are hidden under color-coordinated peyote stitch endcap covers.

Mermaid's Tale is a kumihimo kit for intermediate braidersPrevious experience with the basic round braid (kongoh gumi) on the foam disk is required.
