At shows, I braid sample pieces as examples. One finished bracelet in particular attracted so much attention that a new kit was born. This rendition of a braided Long Magatamas bracelet has some unusual twists. The C-Lon Tex 400 Bead Cord braid can be peeked at though the beads. It gives a color background to the beads. In addition this design also includes a center core so the length of the bracelet will remain the same over the lifetime of the bracelet. More > See Blog Post

Kumihimo Bracelet with Long Magatamas & C-Lon Tex 400 Bead Cord

The Bead, Cord & Clasp Pack includes complimentary copyrighted PDF instructions. The downloadable PDF manual is 12 page long and contains over 30 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 Long Magatamas, 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 the standard women's bracelet length and how to care for the bracelet.

The cords in the Bracelet Packs are pre-cut and ready to be inserted in the slots in the kumihimo disk for your convenience. The Long Magatamas bead mix has plenty of beads. 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, and a Big Eye Needle. If you have all the materials and tools on hand, you can purchase the PDF manual by itself.

In addition to the materials included in the Packs 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.

Add a Peyote Beaded Sleeves for Safety - Without it bracelets can be easily lost

Adding a Peyote Bead Sleeves over the magnetic clasp is the best way to ensure that the clasp holds and does not get lost. The bead packs have ~ 2 to 2.5 g of beads. All the beads are Miyuki Delicas Size 11, ora mix of Medium DelicasSize 11 and Seed Beads Size 11, or all Seed Beads Size 11. The Gold, Silver and Copper beads are Duracoat Galvanized beads. The thread included is chosen as the best color match and may be one of the following: C-Lon Bead Thread Size D, KO or Miyuki Beading Thread, WildFire .006 or 6 lb FireLine.

Sleeves made with Delicas, or Seed Beads Size 11 are made with flat even-count peyote. The Sleeves made with a mix of Medium Delicas Size 10 and Seed Beads Size 11 are made with odd-count peyote. If you have never done peyote before, start with sleeve made Delica. The delicas fit together very well due to their even sizes.

In addition to the material just listed, for the Peyote Sleeve covers, you will need a bead embroidery needle Size 10 or 12, a mini-clamp, plus a Thread Burner for the thread ends. Go > Blog Instructions

Needles for the Peyote 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
