Shipping to United States: $4.50

Under The Boardwalk is a fully beaded kumihimo necklace designed by Diana Miglionico-Shiraishi for Jasmine Tea Designs.

To make this necklace you will need to know how to set up a disk or a marudai to create a Yatsu-Kongoh gumi braid.

Yatsu-Kongoh gumi instructions are not included. I follow the teachings of Makiko Tada's, Comprehensive Treatise of Braids I: Maru-dai braids or Comprehensive Treatise of Braids VI: Kumihimo Disk and Plate.

These braids can be found on page 32 and pages 6 & 7 respectively. I work this braid as a Z-spiral.

You should also know how to load different beads, how to begin and end a braid, then prepare it for the clasp.

Kit creates up to a 22 inch necklace. You will also have enough beads to create a coordinating bracelet. (Clasp not included)

Included in this kit:

Loading instructions for the placement of seed beads, pearls and crystals.

(1) Strand of crystal rondelle
(3) Strands of alabaster glass pearls
(1) Package of Under The Boardwalk seed bead mix by me and all beads are Toho brand.
(1) 8mm Bronze magnetic clasp

You will need both C-Lon or S-Lon in Tex 210 for the seed bead warps, and WildFire or Fireline for the pearl and crystal warps. Amounts are included in the loading instructions.

Frequently Asked Questions


Thank you for taking the time to shop my Jasmine Tea Designs Etsy Store. I appreciate your business.

I'm a small business and I try to get your packages out as quickly as I can to the best of my ability. Sometimes there are issues with items being on back order or prematurely sold out. In these cases I will refund the purchase price of that item and send out the remainder of your order as to not hold up the items that are in stock.

I ship via the United States Postal Service. Once the package leaves the shop I am not able to track it other than the tracking number that is sent to you. If there are any issues with where your package is please contact your local post office with the tracking number for more information.

Lost Orders and Address Issues

I use the United States Post Office to ship. I am not responsible for lost, stolen, or incorrect delivery of packages once there is tracking info for your order. Similarly, if your Paypal or Etsy addresses are not correct, we cannot be held responsible for those MIA packages. Should you find yourself in this position, we encourage you to take your tracking number to the PO and see what can be done.

Love this necklace. It was my first necklace and I found it to be easy once the beads were all loaded.

Pattern is well done and easy to understand.
