Awwww, the beach life.  I wish it could go on forever and with this stunning bracelet those memories can live on.  Many of you have told me over the years that you have difficulty making wrapped loops.  This bracelet contains many, many loops and I will show you the basic steps needed to turn you into a wrapped loop genius.

Choices abound with the sea glass, crystal, and charm selection.  Make wrapped loops and contain those memories every time you wear this piece.

Furnace Glass Kumi Necklace Kits and Class

Furnace Glass Kumi Purple Teal

Furnace Glass Kumi Necklace Kits and Class – Intermediate

Thursday, August 24, 2017 1-3p.m.

I’ll have to admit, I’ve been on a kumihimo kick lately.  When these furnace beads were here for the trunk show last month, I couldn’t resist these candy-like beads and needed to find a home for them in a piece “just for me”.

Well, once I posted the pic, you all responded with tons of interest and so I’ll be putting together kits for this project and offering a class as well.  There will be a limited selection to start, but if interest continues I will custom order more beads (3-5 weeks to have more made) so if you’d like a kit, please get in touch with me asap and I’ll add you to the list.

Kit Fee $44.95 with instructions
Class Fee $25
