This kumihimo bracelet kit combines 100% Nylon Ribbon, C-Lon Bead Cord, with gorgeous Lily Petal Czech beads on both edges, and Miyuki duracoat metallic beads on the top central ridge. The yarn and Toho beads are no longer available, so this kit is available in limited quantities. Get this kit while it is available!


This kit includes all the beads, yarn, cord, thread, clasps, and the copyrighted instructions available in a downloadable PDF format. The manual is 12 pages long and contains over 35 pictures making this project easy even if it is your first kumihimo project. It includes instructions on how to set up your cords on the K-Disk, how to load the beads, how to braid, how to braid with beads, how to remove your project from the K-Disk, how to prepare the ends for the clasp, and how to finish the project. It has a what if? section, plus standard bracelet lengths, and how to care for the pieces, plus links to online resources with a bracelet length calculator to help you size kumihimo bracelets, and instructions for the Peyote Sleeve.

The cords and Rayon Boucle yarn are pre-cut and bound, ready to be inserted in the slots in the kumihimo disk for your convenience. Tool Bags specifically designed for this project are available. They include: a Mini K-Disk, 8 EZ-Bobs, a Weighted EZ-Bob, a Mini-Clamp, Beeswax, and two Bead Embroidery Needles. If you have all the material and tools on hand, you can purchase the PDF manual by itself.


This colorway shifts from denim blue to rust. The beads include two colors of Lily Petals Czech beads with soft metallic and halo finishes, and brilliant copper toned Apollo Hybrids 6/0. Choose the beads for the peyote sleeves, a mix of 10/0 Miyuki Duracoat Delicas in a dark copper and 11/0 Miyuki Seed beads in either cornflower blue or light Duracoat copper tones.

Needles for the Bead Sleeves
Bead Embroidery Needles

Package of 4 needles. Blunt ends. 2 size 10, 2 size 12. Designed for bead embroidery, so shorter than the standard English bead needles. Works well with Peyote Stitch and all the beading thread.

Personal note - I prefer blunt ends over the regular beading needles. The blunt ends lower the likelihood of splitting the thread when going through the beads multiple times, plus they are short and length is not needed for Peyote!

$2.75 each #TO-BEN

Thread Burners
Bead Embroidery Needles

A thread burners are great tools for finishing thread ends and cords. For this project, it is the best tool to end the thread for the Peyote Sleeves
