• Painted Desert Necklace and Earring Set


    This "Painting with Beads" necklace was created by braiding strands with black, silver, gold and earth tone seed beads. Seven shades of beads, some are lined with silver, were used to create the sparkling shine. Size 6 o seed beads were threaded on eight gold 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 gold plated end caps and a lobster claw.

    This flexible necklace is about 22" long. Please give a week for this necklace and earring set to be created.  If you want this necklace in another color please email me and indicate the colors you would like, cynthia@cynsrichdesigns.com.  The matching earrings are three inches long with a metal dangle to accent it. If you want shorter earrings please email me the your desired length.  The earrings are also available either pierced or with earring clips.  Please identify your choice at the time of purchase.

    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 1000 seed beads.
