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 large hole for this piece to allow for the focal section beads.
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 3.25" 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! Another great option for this piece is the magnetic acrylic clasps - that's what I used on mine. There are also many other caps and clasp choices available on this site or use something you already have.
Required stringing material with pre-stiffened ends for easy bead loading;
7 different types and styles of beads, including fabulous Swarovski crystals in Sunflower, some lovely Polaris beads made in Italy, Blue/Yellow mixed drops and, of course, a few handmade (so each one is unique) Unicorne Glass Yo-Yo beads;
Seed bead mix and accent color;
Instructions include information on adapting the back of a disk (or you can choose the 7 strand template or template and thick mini-disk option), the braid movements, the bead layout, and tips for success.

I have been a big fan of Jamie North from Glitz n Kitz for many years now, we usually meet each fall at the Creativ Festival in Toronto. I always look forward to Jamie's classes because she is an excellent teacher, has great designs and ideas, and her instructions are so clear and concise that I have no trouble making other creations at home. I recently bought the Montana Sunflower Yo Yo Necklace Kit and am absolutely in love with this one in particular. If you want a "statement" necklace, this is it! The Yo Yo glass beads are so unique and beautiful..... the colour combination is perfect, and I no sooner had this one made and it was sold ☺️. Glitz n Kitz is a great place to get very unique (and affordable) quality supplies and service is phenomenal..... I usually get my package in the mail within 2 days of order!
