The PIP Jellyfish Earring Design has a kumihimo body with PIP beads, and a beaded tassel for the tentacles. The leverbacks findings are comfortable to wear. The earrings are light, easy to make and fun to wear.

First I designed the PIP Bracelet Kit and Tutorial. Afterwards I made a neckpiece to match to wear for a wedding, and then I needed earrings... so I set all my other projects aside and went to work designing my very first kumihimo earring design. Please note that I went about it without doing any research online whatsoever. I did not want to be influenced by someone else’s designs. After a few false starts, everything gelled and the Kumihimo Jellyfish Earrings with PIP Beads were born!

15 Page Manual - 3 Design Variations, Beaded Tassels + Kit available in 6 Color Choices
This project assumes you this is your second kumihimo project and that you already have a manual showing you how to braid and how to drop the beads. If not get a PIP Bracelet Kit and Tutorial.

This kit comes with a 15 page copyrighted manual with 33 pictures, tables and charts. The PDF manual has clear and easy to follow directions on how to make these earrings.

The earring manual includes 3 kumihimo design variations. Design 1 is shown in the step by step. Design 2 is a shorter version, Design 3 a longer version. The beaded tassels can be made with Miyuki 11/0 Seed Beads or Delicas.

The kits include all the beads, the cut thread and the earring leverbacks. A Tool Bag with the kumihimo tools needed for this project is available for this project. It includes: a Thick Mini K-Disk, 8 EZ-Bobs, 1 Weighted EZ-Bob and 1 Mini-Clamp. In addition you will need Fray Check to make self needles. A thread burner is a great option to melt the cord ends. If you do not have one and do not want to purchase one, you can use Fray Check as a glue instead. A bead mat is recommended and included with the Deluxe Bag. The tutorial is also available by itself HERE if you already have all the materials and tools on hand.

Preciosa PIP beads
Preciosa PIP beads are perfect little petal shaped pressed glass beads with soft edges measuring 5x7mm.

Each kit makes 1 pair of earrings approximately 2 7/8 inch (7.3 cm) long. The cords are pre-cut. The sterling and gold filled leverbacks passed the European nickel level test. Nickel is very allergenic and high levels are considred unsafe for jewelry. The kits listed below are high quality kits with high quality components.

Fray Check
Bead Embroidery Needles

Perfect for self needles - superior to super glue or nail polish. It does not leave much of a residue on the fingers when smoothing along the thread, and the residue can be washed or rubbed away easily. The alcohol evaporates and the product dries on the thread. When opening the bottle for the first time, poke a hole in the tip with a fine pin. Allow 5-10 minutes to dry.

$4.30 each #ADH-FCK
0.75oz./22.5 ml. Made in the U.S.


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
