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 lampwork focal beads? This Beaded Kumihimo Necklace with Unicorne Drop Beads was fun to make and was a perfect gift for the bride-to-be! I shopped for Unicorne beads in her wedding colors. True confessions time: Unicorne Drop Beads are so pretty and they nest together so well that I admit to personal bead stash purchases, as well.
The 25 glass drops strung on one of the eight cords dictated the length of the center section. I decided an eight-bead segment on either end would work, with sterling silver chain completing the necklace. So on each of the eight strands of beading cord, I strung eight size 6 seed beads. Then I added 25 beads to each strand with (one strand was the Unicorne beads). Finally, I strung eight more size 6 beads to each strand.
Even though the Unicorne beads are a different shape, the basics of How To Do Kumihimo with Beads are the same.
I added sterling silver cones and chain to make the Beaded Kumihimo Necklace with Unicorne Drop Beads just the right length.
