I had the need to create beautifully textured and colorful rope necklaces that I could put on with a crisp white shirt or tee!
So here is 'Every Day Pretty'! Perfect for every day wear!!
'Every Day Pretty' is a fully beaded kumihimo necklace designed by Diana Miglionico-Shiraishi for Jasmine Tea Designs.
To make this necklace you will need to know how to set up a disk or a marudai to create a Yatsu-Kongoh gumi braid.
Yatsu-Kongoh gumi instructions are not included. I follow the teachings of Makiko Tada's, Comprehensive Treatise of Braids I: Maru-dai braids or Comprehensive Treatise of Braids VI: Kumihimo Disk and Plate.
These braids can be found on page 32 and pages 6 & 7 respectively. I work this braid as a Z-spiral.
You should also know how to load different beads, how to begin and end a braid, then prepare it for the clasp.
This kit makes up to a 22 inch necklace. You will have enough beads to create a coordinating bracelet if desired. (Clasp not included)
Included in this kit:
Loading instructions for the placement of seed beads, pearls and crystals.
(1) Strand of clear crystals
(3) Strands of alabaster glass pearls in the following colors: Burgundy, Falun Red & Antique Pink
(1) 22 grams of Miyuki Strawberry Fields Mix
(1) 8mm Matte Silver magnetic clasp
You will need both C-Lon or S-Lon, Tex 210 for the seed bead warps, and WildFire or Fireline for the pearl and crystal warps. Amounts are included in the loading instructions.
