Gemstone chips and beads are great for using in necklace kumihimo patterns–especially those that call for eight to twelve cords at a time in the disk. Use these two lovely designs for inspiration as you work with amethysts and other precious gemstones.
This 24-inch necklace has a core selection of genuine semi-precious amethyst gemstone chips and includes 650 other amethyst beads with 8 different styles and sizes. Basic 8-warp/element kumihimo braids are used to work the easy design.
Since the beads are the same hues, you can place the 8 cording strands in any of the slots and adjust as needed to get the kumihimo patterns desire.
The dark smoky amethyst tints make the necklace a very versatile fashion accessory that can be worn with pink, mauve, gray, black, white, gold or tan attire you already have in your wardrobe. Matching earrings complete the stunning beaded kumihimo jewelry set.

Brass tulip shaped bead cones provide a lovely setting for the attached gold chain. A pair of dangle earrings complement the findings and chain.
