The Picturesque 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 twelve step-by-step photos and diagrams for making the necklace and endcap covers.
Finished length options approximately: 20", 12", 24", 26"
This is not a kit. No materials are included.
Picturesque is an all-levels 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 following a stringing chart
- how drop beads and lock them in place in the braid
The following supplies and tools (not included) are needed to make a Picturesque Necklace (the PDF includes a detailed supply list with quantities):
- 1 pendant with 6mm bail (We use pendants from Two Charming Chix.)
- size 11 Delica beads (make a "bead soup" mix or use a solid color)
- 3mm fire polished beads
- TierraCast silver colored spacer beads
- micro Superlon braiding cord
- jewelry tube
- beading thread
- big-eye needle
- 5mm stainless steel magnetic endcaps
- binding thread
- E6000 glue
- foam kumihimo disk
- weighted bobbins (~23g each)
- clip-on center weight (~45g)
- bead spinner (optional)
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. 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 quantity may be listed as a range if the instructions include stringing charts for multiple sizes. If you would prefer to purchase a complete kit that includes both the instructions and all the materials needed to make a project, please reach out. Depending on stock availability we may be able to make you a kit even if that project isn't currently listed as a kit on our website. (There is a "Contact Us" link at the bottom of this page.)
