Isn't that what this is?

  PyObject* PyUnicode_FromKindAndData(
         int kind, const void *buffer, Py_ssize_t size)

     Create a new Unicode object with the given kind (possible
     values are PyUnicode_1BYTE_KIND etc., as returned by
     PyUnicode_KIND()). The buffer must point to an array of
     size units of 1, 2 or 4 bytes per character, as given by
     the kind.
