2 Kumihimo Kits - 4 Colorways

Get both kits and make 3 bracelets with 3 different bead placements, plus 1 long necklace. The kits include everything you need to ensure successful projects. They are available in several distinct colorways, with beads, cords, hand-dyed rayon bouclé yarn, clasps, and Peyote Stitch sleeves, all coordinated to braid bracelets and necklaces.

PDF instructions - Downloadable and printable. The manual for the Bracelet Duo Kit is 14 pages long. The manual for the Necklace Plus Kit is 15 pages long. Both manuals have over 30 pictures each, making these two projects easy to follow, even for beginners. Instructions include how to set up your cords on the K-Disk, how to load the beads, how to braid with and without beads, how to remove your project from the K-Disk, and how to prepare the ends for the clasps and how to finish the project. It has a what if? section, plus standard bracelet lengths and how to care for the pieces. The PDF Manuals are also available by themselves HERE.

What's in the Kits - All the beads, cords, and the clasps, and to kick start your project, the cords are already pre-cut and bound and ready to be inserted in the slots in the kumihimo disk.

Add a Tool Bag - Perfect for these projects, the tool bag includes: a Mini K-Disk, 8 EZ-Bobs, a Weighted EZ-Bob, a Mini-Clamp, a Big Eye and a Bead Embroidery Needle, plus a small cake of organic beeswax.

In addition to the materials in the kit and the Tool Bag, you will need heavy-duty scissors, shear or snips, pliers, plus adhesives to attach the clasp, such as Poly Zap Super Glue and Zap Jewelry Gel. A thread burner is recommended for finishing the thread ends of the Peyote Sleeves that cover the magnetic clasps.

After I discovered this hand-dyed Rayon Bouclé yarn, I designed kits in two colorways: Place Vendome and Santorini. In November 2022, I added the Byzantium and Marrakesh kits and wrote a new tutorial specifically for the Necklace Plus Kits. As of January 2024, Perlage, the latest colorway, has been added after I found 2 skeins at a small yarn store. It's worth noting that this Rayon Bouclé yarn is no longer available.

PERLAGE NEW

This colorway is classic, light, and neutral. The color of the yarn starts with white, moves to pale ginger, then light grey, then back to pale ginger and white. The colors shift gently. The beads are silver, frosted white, and dark bronze. The peyote stitch sleeve beads are silver and bronze for the Duo bracelets and pearlescent white bisque for the neckpiece and accompanying bracelet.

Why the Perlage name? In French, perlage means strings of pearls, but in Italian, it refers to the size and distribution of bubbles in sparkling wines. So, Perlage is the perfect name for this color combination, as the beads reminded me of champagne bubbles while braiding the kit samples.

PLACE VENDOME

This colorway is a beautiful combination of classic colors like greys, gold, and rust. It reminds me of Paris, particularly of Place Vendome.

The beads used for the peyote stitch sleeves are gold, gunmetal for the Duo bracelets, and copper for the Necklace Plus and its accompanying bracelet.

Best Adhesives for this Project
Poly Zap by Pacer

Poly Zap by Pacer for 1st Step -
This super glue designed for specialty plastics is perfect for nylon cords, but be careful if using this product next to beads as it may discolor them or leave a milky film. It dries quickly as most super glues.

Always wipe the top of the bottle before replacing the cap, store it upright, and pierce the top with a thin needle if the flow is restricted. This product has a limited shelf life of about a year. Keep it upright in the fridge to extend its shelf life.

$8.75 each
1/2 oz./14.2 g. #ADH-PZ

 
Zap Jewelry by Pacer for Beadsmith

Jewelry Gel for 2nd Step
Extra Thick Formula - No runs, no drips.
Recommended for securing clasp to cords and for kumihimo findings.

Personal note - I have tested it. It works well to attach cords to metal findings. For cord ends, I prefer Poly-Zap for the 1st step (gluing the cord ends together), but I like this adhesive for the second step (attaching the glued cord ends to the finding). As to its lasting quality, it will need to be tested over time but so far so good and all Pacer products seem to be of good quality!

$4.50 each
1/2 oz./14.2 g. #ADH-GEL

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
