The Soirée Kumihimo Necklace Video Class is a set of video tutorials and a downloadable PDF.  Nothing will be shipped to you.  If you want to print out the written instructions, you'll need to have a printer.  This is a pre-order.  You'll have access to the video class and PDF in February.  You'll need Adobe Acrobat Reader in order to open the PDF file.  

Because of the time-consuming nature of the Soirée necklace, we're going with a video-on-demand format for the class. This way you can work at your own pace and not worry about trying to get your homework done in time for a live zoom class that may not fit your schedule.

Each step of the project will be a separate video to make it easy for you to follow along with whatever stage of the necklace you're currently working on. As always, we're available for trouble-shooting via email.

This is not a kit.  No materials are included.  

Early Bird Pre-Order Pricing is available if you purchase the class before December.

$69 video class alone.

If you are also buying a kit, then the class can be added on for just $49.  (This is an automatic discount.  Just put both the kit and the class in your cart and you'll see a $20 discount on the class making it $49.


Type of project:  embellished kumihimo necklace
Max finished length:  approximately 26" (not counting the tassel)
Techniques: beaded kumihimo (all levels), bead stitching (all levels), bead stringing (beginner)

Soirée should not be your first beaded kumihimo project. Soirée is a kumihimo necklace for competent braiders.  No previous bead stitching or braid embellishing experience is required. Soirée is not difficult, but it does require working with very small beads and paying very close attention to details.

Previous experience with the basic round braid (kongoh gumi) on the foam disk is required. If it has been awhile since your last beaded kumihimo project (or if this is your first time with one of my projects), please review our Beaded Kumihimo Starter Guide and Understanding the Braid before beginning your necklace.   


Complete necklace kits are available for the Soirée and we highly recommend that you buy one to ensure that you have exactly what you need to be successful.

If you choose to purchase the video class without a kit, please understand that we cannot provide technical support if you attempt to make material substitutions.  You must use the exact size and types of beads/button/thread called for in the supply list. 

The Soirée supply list does not include color names or numbers, so the "video class only" option is best for beaders comfortable making their own color selections and willing/able to search for their own materials. 

The following materials are needed to make a Soirée necklace:

  • Superlon micro
  • size 11 Miyuki Delica beads
  • size 8 Toho Demi beads
  • 3mm Czech fire polished beads
  • 36mm Czech glass button with metal shank (Button size is critical! No subsitutions!)
  • size 8 Miyuki seed beads
  • size 11 Miyuki seed beads
  • size 15 Miyuki or Toho seed beads
  • One-G or KO beading thread
