Kumihimo With Unique Fibers and Swarovski Starfish

This kumihimo bracelet is for that person who feels bigger is better!

You can always make a thinner braid on the kumihimo disk.  What this post is going to show you is that you can also make braids that are super thick too.

This unique (possibly vintage) braided cord was most likely used in the home decoration world.

Combining it with a classic gold rattail from our collection made this disk set up, one of the most unusual ones to date.  You can see that I was careful placing the thick braid into the slots.  By the end of my project the slots were still great and I did not do any damage to the disk.

This braid is so special!  The way the fibers were placed in the disk resulted in this shape.  The classic 8-strand braid pattern is what was used.

The biggest end cap in the Dazzle-it catalog is 12mm.  It fit on my braid because I placed it over the thinner sections.

The addition of these Swarovski Elements starfish made the bracelet special.

The starfish pendants were attached with jump rings to the exposed rattail cord.

The Dazzle-it Website has the complete catalog online.  You can also read more about our kumihimo line here.
