Gemstone chips, such as Larimar and Amethyst are featured in this kumihimo bracelet and tassel kit. The bracelet has a dual side, with chips just on the top side and softer round 8s against the skin for softness. The bracelet also features a button and loop closure, but the way it is done is not the usual way starting at the button and finishing at the loop. Get the kit and find out how it saves on hand stitching.

The bracelet tutorial is 14 page long with over 40 photos, tables and diagrams. The Tassel is made with leftover beads, pus additional one included in the kit. The Tassel manual is 16 page long with 24 photos, tables and diagrams. Both sets of instructions are included with the kit or available as stand alone PDFs available for download or viewing online HERE. No kumihimo and beading experience is necessary. The directions are clear and easy to follow.

To make a large tassel you will need leftover beads from 2 Bead & Button Packs, so get 1 Full Kit and 1 extra Bead & Button Pack and make 2 bracelets and 1 Large Tassel. There is enough C-Lon Bead Cord to make 3-ply cord for the tassel. Get the Cord Making Manual and all the tools for Project 1 or 2 HERE.

If you decide to make a cord to turn the tassel into a necklace, you can either braid one with the extra C-Lon Bead Cord that comes with the kit or learn cord making to make the3-ply cord featured on the photos here above. For the cord option, you will need to get the instructions and make your own tools, or get the the Cord Making Tool Set. More info is available HERE.

2 Manuals + Bracelet + Tassel Kits available in 2 Color Choices: Larimar or Amethyst
Kit prices may fluctuates as they are based on the quality and price of the gemstone chips. Supply of these gemstone chips may vary over time or may no longer be available once the chip strands on hand are sold.
The list of tools needed for this project is listed below on this page.

I wanted to write a kumihimo tutorial with a button and a loop for a long time and when these beautiful Larimar chip beads came my way at BABE, the Bay Area Bead Extravaganza, the concept was born. When the first bracelet sample was finished, I had just enough Larimar chip beads leftover for a beaded tassel attached to the bracelet, and I had to write another tutorial. Then Ultra Violet, the 2018 Pantone Color of Year came out and Amethyst was added to the mix. Then the larger tassels needed cords and instead of braiding them I opted for 3-ply twisted cords. Then the cord making tutorial I had written in 2006 needed some updating and extra tutorial added to make it more project oriented!

It is also known as the Dolphin Stone, Blue Pectolite, or the Atlantis Stone. The strands currently in stock for this kit have a beautiful color, few flaws, a nice polish, and range from 5 to 15mm.

I used beeswax for my first samples,
then I switched to Fray Check
and it worked very well.

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
