The Opening Night bracelet balances symmetry and negative space in this dramatic, eye-catching design.  The braid is a straight forward counted pattern suitable for braiders of all-levels.  The bead stitching embellishment that joins the two braids has an easy-to-follow thread path making this a great first "embellished braid" project.

Following the detailed, step-by-step instructions in the kit, you'll step up your jewelry-making game by learning the fundamentals of braid embellishment:  how to anchor beading thread to the braid, how to sew two braids together, how to embellish the edge of the braid, and how to make custom peyote stitch endcap covers.
The kit includes top-quality Japanese seed beads and Czech glass beads... all the materials you need to make one bracelet. The kit includes three stringing charts to fit a variety of wrist sizes (up to 8").

Opening Night is a kumihimo kit for beginners and all levels of braidersPrevious experience with the basic round braid (kongoh gumi) on the foam disk is helpful, but not required.  If this is your very first beaded kumihimo project, please consult our Beaded Kumihimo Starter Guide before beginning.  

Techniques used:  kumihimo, general bead stitching, and peyote stitch

The Opening Night kit includes printed instructions, big-eye needle, Czech glass fire polished beads, Japanese seed beads, size 11 Delica beads, stainless steel magnetic endcaps, superlon braiding cord, beading thread, binding thread, and E6000 glue. 

You’ll need the following tools (not included) to complete the project: foam kumihimo disk (regular 1/2″ thickness), 8 weighted bobbins (~23g each), clip-on center weight (~45g), and scissors.
