The Timeless Treasure is a wardrobe staple that complements every outfit. It's equally at home with jeans and t-shirt or a nice dress. There's a wonderful textural contrast between the elongated, faceted Czech glass beads and the smooth seed beads. You'll finish your necklace with coordinating peyote stitch endcap covers. Each kit makes one necklace up to 26" long. Timeless Treasure is a kumihimo kit for all levels. Previous 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 review our Beaded Kumihimo Starter Guide before beginning your necklace.
Techniques used: kumihimo and peyote stitch
The Timeless Treasure kit includes printed instructions, big-eye needle, size 18 Superlon, Superlon micro, size 8 Japanese seed beads, size 11 Japanese seed beads, faceted Czech glass beads, 8mm stainless steel magnetic endcaps, binding thread, and E6000 glue. You have enough materials to make one necklace either 19.5″ or 23.5" long.
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), scissors, and jewelry pliers.
