Semi-Precious Chips Featured In A Necklace

It is wonderful to see what a designer makes with our new products.  Nancy Donaldson was given a selection of new semi-precious chips to experiment with.

Her chips were joined with individually made headpins so that many of the small pieces are easy to admire.  This necklace features a smaller assortment of chips combined with our Fire and Ice agate beads and Neo Chain.

What Else Can You Do With Kumihimo Braid?

I have started to use my kumihimo braids for different types of projects.  This is my first kumihimo brooch.

This braid was already a finished necklace.  It was longer than I liked, so I was about to shorten it when I decided to try something different instead.

I cut away the endcaps after I tied off the ends.  Then I dipped these ends in a little Quik Grip glue.

I then sewed the braid into a circle and whip stitched a little bit of felt across the back to finish it.  It is the sweetest brooch now!

I use my Dazzle-it kumihimo disk at least once a week.  It is amazing that such a simple and inexpensive tool can be used to create so many different braids.

The center bead is from our semi-precious strand.

Rainbow Kumihimo Bracelet

This kumihimo bracelet was inspired by something similar I viewed on Facebook last week.  It reminded me that the rainbow rattail is the ideal cord to use for beginner projects.  You achieve the look of a complex pattern with virtually no work.

We have the rainbow rattail available on spools and bobbins.  There is also a bright rainbow and a pastel colour version.  Sizes range from 1mm to 3mm.  I am using the 2mm for this project.

The rainbow colours makes the most beautiful braid!  This is the standard 8-strand braid you see in our instruction booklet that comes with your kumihimo disk.

Before I glued in my end caps, I added one of our new butterfly pendant bails.  It made adding my dangles easy and the bail itself is just beautiful on its own.

Here is a closer look at the bail.

The semi-precious skull beads have always been a colourful addition to anything I add them to.

 

John Bead also has a chain tassel group that I selected my dangle from.

 

Fire and Ice Agate Beads – Blue Sky

The stars of this necklace are the extremely beautiful Fire and Ice Agate beads.

Blue Sky is available in three sizes 10ml, 12ml, 16ml,  I simply strung them all to create this necklace.

The beads really require no additional embellishment.  I made this shell pendant myself and it went so well with the colours that I added it.  I also included two of our new white tassels to balance the necklace.

The tassels are also new and available in so many great colours!

My last step was to select a closure and I chose this new hook and eye set.

Dazzle-it Fire and Ice Beads

The new Dazzle-it Fire and Ice Agate Semi-Precious Facetted Dye Beads are stealing the show on this new necklace.

This necklace uses three of the new products we launched this month:  Fire and Ice Agate beads, Faux Suede Tassels and Fancy Chain.

The necklace really just made itself.  The

The carnelian agate colour really caught my eye.  It has wonderful rust and white colours running throughout the bead.  Each agate colour comes in three sizes:  10mm, 12mm and 16mm

My colour choices for Fire and Ice are gorgeous!

I used red and white faux suede tassels.

I had several options for my chain.  This is our new Fancy Chain collection.

Three strands per side of Fancy Chain gave this necklace a very rich and finished look.

Happy Buddha Necklace

Fernando DaSilva created this necklace to showcase the semi-precious special shaped beads in the Dazzle-it catalog.

    

The beads are joyful!  This would surely make you smile at the office!

The beads are 17mm semi-precious in multiple colours.

The turquoise bead can also be purchased as a single colour strand.

We also have this set of Buddha beads too!
