Rhapsody is a delightful skill-building project designed to take beginner-plus and intermediate braiders to the next level. You'll be amazed at how effortlessly your necklace fades from size 11 seed beads to a focal section of 3mm fire polished beads. TierraCast Temple endcaps paired with a Lotus magnetic clasp complete the look.
With the Rhapsody kit, you'll learn how to braid around a core and drop multiple beads in one move. Previous experience with the basic round braid (kongoh gumi) on the foam disk is required. We recommend that you are familiar with the contents of our foundational documents, Beaded Kumihimo Starter Guide and Understanding the Braid, and that you have completed a couple beaded kumihimo projects before starting the Rhapsody necklace kit.
