Latest Kumihimo Project

Since Kumihimo is one of my "Specialties" I thought it would be the perfect necklace to make my Mom for Mother's Day. I knew that I couldn't do just any Kumihimo since my Mom has been an artist for many years. The moment that I saw this pendant I knew that was her colors! Then I needed to pick the elements that I was going to use for my Kumihimo Braid. I chose Labradorite, Freshwater Pearls, Swarovski Crystals and 3 different colors of 8/0 Seed Beads. It turned out great! She loved it! Of course I had to make a second one for our store so that customers could get inspired by it too. Here is the second one that is in our store.
