I am delighted with this hand dyed silk ribbon. It braid beautifully, the texture and colors are luscious. I enjoyed creating the samples for these kits. The ribbon is available here > Silk Ribbon

 

Kit available in 8 Colorways - Makes one necklace - Includes a 12 Page Manual
This is a great kumihimo project suitable even if it is your first kumihimo project. The 12 page copyrighted manual assumes no prior experience and is easy to follow with step by step directions with lots of pictures. It is a PDF available online. Access to the PDF is included in the kit.

Each kit comes with a pre-cut and ready to braid cord bundle tied together ready to be inserted into the kumihimo disk so you can start braiding right away. It includes hand dyed silk ribbon, metallic accent cords, satin cords, and C-Lon Bead Cord. Three colors of 4mm Magatamas and the toggle clasp are assorted for each colorway.

The length of the finished braided cord is approximately 21 to 25 inches (54-63 cm) long and 6-8 mm in diameter. The 4mm Magatamas add width to the cord bringing it up to 12 mm in diameter. Length vary depending on your braiding style. If you braid very tightly, the braid will be shorter and denser. If you braid very loosely the braid will be softer and longer.

Want to make bracelets?

For this project, get a Kumihimo Tool Bag with a Mini K-Disk, 8 EZ-Bobs, 1 Weighted EZ-Bob and 1 Mini-Clamp. Plus you will also need a pair of scissors, micro-tip pruning snip, and adhesives to attach the toggle clasp such as Poly Zap Super Glue and either Zap Jewelry Gel or Devcon 5-Minute Epoxy. The larger bag comes with a bead mat, a nice addition to keep your beads from moving. The tutorial is also available by itself HERE.

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.

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!
