The Water Dancer earrings features a textural spiral of magatama and seed beads. The earrings are finished with a graceful, swaying tassel. You can customize the tassel length to suite your style.
These fun earrings for beginner-plus braiders of with some previous beaded kumihimo experience.
Water Dancer is a beginner-plus level project, but 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 and follow a stringing chart
- how drop beads and lock them in place in the braid
- how bind off the ends of your braid
Please download our free Beaded Kumihimo Starter Guide as a reference for these basic skills.
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.)
