Mirage is a stunning new kumihimo necklace design by Rebecca Ann Combs.  A luxuriously rich eight-color bead soup transforms into a strong single-color focal point across three braids of graduated lengths.  We finished the necklace with subtly hammered endcaps and a matching three-strand magnetic clasp. Easy to braid with size 8 seed beads (with just a few size 11 beads hiding under the endcaps), Mirage is a project suitable for all levels. 

If this is your very first beaded kumihimo project, please review our Beaded Kumihimo Starter Guide before beginning your necklace.
