My agate slab pendant is the inspiration for this kumihimo cord made with rattail, hemp, suede lace and cotton waxed cord.
The colours in the pendant are just stunning.
I gathered all the stringing material that would highlight the colours the best and set up my kumihimo round braid disk for a lovely hour of braiding.
I used Agate Slab Pendant with Pewter/Turquoise Setting
Sea Blue Cotton Wax Cord
Sea Green Suede Lace
Aqua Blue Dazzle-It Rattail
Silver Dazzle-It Rattail
Pastel Colours Dazzle-It Hemp
The suede lace was a wonderful new addition for me. I did break the strand at one point and was happy a small knot could repair it so the braiding continued.
When my braid was the length I wanted I tied each edge.
You will love all the Agate slabs in the John Bead collection.
