Another limited edition kit - this one is NOT recommended for beginners as some of the beads are a bit tricky to braid with - otherwise, it is super simple!
NOTE: You will want to use a disk with a larger center hole for this project in order to accommodate the focal section.
This is an 7-strand 'fill the gap' braid done on a foam Kumihimo disk. The kit will make a necklace approximately 18.25" long (pre-caps and clasp) with a 4.5" focal section.
Caps and clasp are NOT included but the crimpable hook and eye version is provided as an option for this kit and are so easy and quick! The magnetic acrylic clasp is also a great glue-in choice (choose as a separate item) or there are many other caps and clasp choices available on this site.

Wonderful color combinations, perfect selection of beads for the center focal piece and don't be afraid of the yo-yo's. they were very easy to work with. It was the leaves that kept trying to escape!
If you haven't done any of this style I'd suggest starting with something a bit easier. I've made 6 of them and this one was pretty much a breeze.
