Hi Beaders, today I wanted to share one of my latest designs which I think is perfect for summer! This kumihimo necklace makes use of our brand new Preciosa Czech fire polished beads in bright matt white and turquoise. Why not choose your favourite colour faceted round beads and personalise this to your own tastes? I love to make delicate kumihimo pieces using lots of seed beads and small glass beads, so these new 4mm fire polished beads were the perfect choice for a summer necklace.
