Nature Lover's Necklace and Earrings
This stunning handmade "One of a Kind" Kumihimo necklace is made of Garnet, Topaz 6 o glass seed beads and mixed earth tone bead chips. The necklace features a antique copper leaf clasp. The necklace includes high quality C-lon cord and brass bead caps. This necklace has been braided using the 8 element Kongoh Gumi technique. To produce this necklace, over 750 seed beads were used.
The necklace measures 24 inches long. The set includes matching earrings. The earrings are three inches long.
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.
