This kumihimo bracelet was inspired by something similar I viewed on Facebook last week. It reminded me that the rainbow rattail is the ideal cord to use for beginner projects. You achieve the look of a complex pattern with virtually no work.
We have the rainbow rattail available on spools and bobbins. There is also a bright rainbow and a pastel colour version. Sizes range from 1mm to 3mm. I am using the 2mm for this project.
The rainbow colours makes the most beautiful braid! This is the standard 8-strand braid you see in our instruction booklet that comes with your kumihimo disk.
Before I glued in my end caps, I added one of our new butterfly pendant bails. It made adding my dangles easy and the bail itself is just beautiful on its own.
Here is a closer look at the bail.
The semi-precious skull beads have always been a colourful addition to anything I add them to.
John Bead also has a chain tassel group that I selected my dangle from.
