Kumihimo Glamour Belt By Fernando DaSilva

What a pleasure it is for me to post this sample today.  I am going to use a word I have never typed on this blog before:  BELT!

Leave it to Fernando DaSilva to create a belt that would steal the thunder of any outfit you wore it with.

He combined so many of the techniques I love.  Kumihimo braids make the main body of belt and their ends are beautifully finished in one of our new end caps.  The double oval link chain looks gorgeous with the addition of glass beads cascading like grapes on the vine.  I am inspired to make a kumihimo braid that I can use for a belt too!
