Beaded Kumihimo Necklace with Unicorne Drop Beads
How to use a strand of small Unicorne lampwork drops to make a gift for a bride-to-be? Perfect for kumihimo, but how to scatter and center the little focals? The 25 drops strung on one of the eight cords would dictate the length of the center section. Thirds are usually pleasing, so I decided an eight-bead segment on either end would work. So on each of the eight strands of beading cord, I strung eight size 6 seed beads, then added 25 beads to each strand with (one strand was the Unicorne beads). Eight more size 6 beads were added to each strand. Sterling silver cones and chain gave the beaded segment just the right length.
