It did not occur to me until a few days ago that shells might look fabulous with a kumihimo cord. This strand of shells is such a gorgeous shade of purple and I didn’t have anything in my collection that would work with them.
For my kumihimo cord I used both rattail and hemp. I have worked with the Dazzle-It Rattail since it arrived at John Bead. The colour and size options are superb and I can virtually match any item I am working with. (You can see that my purple shells inspired this colour grouping.) I think the addition of hemp made my cord look even more interesting.
The purple shell beads come on an eight inch strand.
I used my kumihimo findings set for my closure. I attached these to my kumihimo cord and then to my shells and my necklace was compete!
