Sometimes it all starts with a fabulous yarn, in this instance space dyed rayon bouclé. The rayon bouclé has gorgeous colors and texture. Then to do justice to the yarn, it was necessary to find bead placements that would allow the braid to be seen through the beads. To read more about the process of designing these kits, go to -> Blog Post

 

The kits listed below include the beads, the cords & rayon bouclé, clasps, Peyote sleeves and the copyrighted instructions available in a downloadable PDF format. The manual is 14 pages long and contains over 40 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, and 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.

The cords are pre-cut and bound. They are 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, a Big Eye and a Bead Embroidery Needle. If you have all the material and tools on hand, you can purchase the PDF manual by itself.

In addition to the materials included in the kits and the Tool Bags, you will need a heavy duty scissors, shear or snips, plus an adhesive to attach the clasp such as Poly Zap Super Glue, Zap Jewelry Gel or Devcon 5-Minute Epoxy. A thread burner is recommended finishing the thread ends of the Peyote Sleeves.

Place Vendome

This colorway combines greys, gold and rust. It reminded me of Paris, especially Place Vendome with its classical colors. The Rayon Bouclé starts with deep rust, then goes to charcoal, grey, light rust, grey and back to charcoal. The beads are gold, frosted grey, dark bronze & gunmetal. The peyote sleeves are gold, gunmetal and copper.

Santorini

This colorway combines aqua, rust, purple and grape. It reminded me of the Minoan murals in Crete, then I thought of Santorini, the beautiful island in Greece where Atlantis could have been. The Rayon Bouclé starts with rust, then goes to aqua, purple, grape, and back to purple and aqua. The beads are gold, metallic blue iris, dark bronze & matte black iris. The peyote sleeves are gold, blue and dark plum iris.

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 burner is a great tool for finishing thread ends and cords. For this project it is the best tool to end the thread for the peyote Sleeves
