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

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

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)
  • scissors
  • 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.)
