Made with 800 Japanese seed beads and base metal pewter beads, the necklace is complemented with a beautiful center focal spray of rhinestones and metallic fringe.
Kumihimo Patterns—From Start to Finish in 4 Hours or Less
As with many beaded kumihimo patterns, this project can be finished in under four hours, from stringing the beads to attaching the jewelry findings! You can braid it in the morning and wear it the same evening.
The quick and easy necklace is based on a simple 8-warp kumihimo braiding pattern. No fancy design is used; the different textures of the beads and the focal give this stunning fashion accessory its distinctive look.
The project works best if you’ve already mastered the basics of kumihimo braiding. No need to replicate the Delicate Spray kumihimo design, you can create your own unique accessory.
Any fringe pendant or beaded tassel will work equally well with this necklace as long as you can attach the stringing material to both ends or in the center. This is a great kumihimo braiding project for using recycled pieces from thrift stores!
“God called the dry land earth, and the gathering of the waters He called seas; and God saw that it was good.” (Genesis 1:10)
