Item details

Crown Knotting is the best way to string beads. The crown knots are completely symmetrical and have many advantages over pearl knotting as the ratio of the knot/sennit size versus the cord is much larger than with other methods of stringing beads. This is the best method to string antique beads and keeping them from touching each other.

The Crown Knot bracelet kit includes:
• Serpentine Beads: 5 Cylinders, 4 Saucers & 1 Square Button
• Pre-Cut C-Lon Bead Cord with a Beeswax Self-Needle already made
• C-Lon Micro Cord or Nylon #69 in Matching Colors
• Contrasting Color of C-Lon Bead Cord for Construction
• Mimi Kumihimo Disk (you need a dedicated disk just for Crown Knotting)
• Mini-Clamp, T-Pins, Tapestry & Chenille Needles
• Bead Reamer Fine Tip
• Beeswax
• Clear Bag to hold the project
• PDF Instruction Manual - Link on card in kit

The manual is 22 pages long and contains over 40 pictures and images making this project easy. The pictures and images are large and easy to follow. The manual includes instructions on how to tie crown knots and crown knot sennit, how to count the crown knots, how to add beads, how to create integrated fiber endings and button loops. Two different methods of tying the crown knot on the kumihimo disk are shown with lots of pictures. Both are easy in comparison to tying crown knots free hand. The first method is a bit faster. The second method is more ergonomic. The manual also includes a table showing sennit diameters, advice as to cord length, measuring, cutting and assembling the stands even though you will not need to do so for the kit as it is already done, plus a what if section.

Half hitches, square knots, and larks head knots are used to finish the ends. Color diagrams of the square knot and larks head knot are included in the manual, but prior knowledge of basic knotting is helpful for this kit.

The beads are serpentine, a gemstone to imitate jade also known as New Jade in the trade. These beads are no longer cut or commercially available so the bracelet kits are limited to what I have on hand. Most of the beads are natural - the natural color of the stone. The dark brown ones are dyed and depending on the type of skin, they will fade as they are worn. Please allow for color variations.

Color Options for the Beads are as follows:
1. All Green
2. Multi Colors
3. Dark Green
4. Multi Olive

Color Options for the C-lon Bead Cord Colors
1. Olivine
2. Celadon
3. Gold
4. Chocolate
5. Medium Purple
6. Charcoal
7. Sepia
8. Forest Green
9. Chestnut
10. Brown

In addition to the materials included in the kit, you will need a macrame board, scissors, a measuring tape or a ruler, plus an adhesive such as Poly Zap Super Glue (or any super glue, Jewelry Gel, or GS Hypo Cement.)
