- Dragon Scale Rope –12-inch center rope braided entirely in the tiny flat glass scales with holes for stringing near the top. One side of the beads is painted with black lacquer and the other side is coated with rose-gold metallic.
- Basic Kumihimo Braiding Ropes – Two 12-inch seed bead ropes worked in the dotted Swiss pattern with 8 strands of beads. For each rope, two of the strands have size 8-0 round rose-gold metallic beads and six strands have shiny black Japanese 8-0 glass seed beads.
