Kumihimo Necklace with beads



Finally did it, my first Kumihimo necklace with beads. It is 26 inches in length and used 17g of beads. The close-up photo with the black background shows truer colors. I think it will look well with casual dress -- like jeans LOL.
Today the temperature was above freezing, the snow is melting and the birds are back in force. This little guy was enjoying a thistle seed treat outside my kitchen window.

This is really interesting how it all comes together. It was great that you posted the close up .. I wondered what this looked like done. Very cool. Judy says her book will be done in July. I have ordered a copy for you from her .. asked her to sign it too. Will MAKE her look at your web site before she signs it though so she knows it is too a fellow beader!! Great job!
