• Abalone Necklace and Earring Set


    This necklace was created by braiding strands with Cream Colored and Picasso Brown tone seed beads. Size 6 o seed beads were threaded on eight brown colored C-Lon nylon cords. The strands were placed on a round kumihimo loom and braided to create this beautiful necklace. The necklace was finished with a silver plated end caps and a lobster claw.  The necklace is accented with a brown and abalone pendant.  Earrings are included to finish off the set

    This flexible necklace is 19" long, including the clasp. This necklace is one of a kind.  

    Kumihimo is an ancient Japanese art. Strands are braided in a circular motion on a round loom. The kumihimo necklaces take several hours to braid. It just depends on the beads and the length of the necklace, but I really enjoy making these handmade necklaces. This necklace consists of around 900 seed beads.
