Kumihimo and Agate Slabs

Agate slabs or slices are a wonderful addition to a summer necklace.  These semi precious slices are available in many colours and ordinarily feature a pre drilled hole making them easy to add to a project.

My kumihimo braid features two of our Dazzle-it rattail colours and sea blue cotton wax cord.

I used the classic eight strand braiding technique that you receive with our Dazzle-it Disk instructions.

When you make a braid you will find it very helpful if you add a weight to the end.  It will help pull and keep your braid tight and straight while you work.

My finished braid looks wonderful!

I finished the ends with our Kumihimo endcaps.

I added a simple gold chain to lengthen my cord and this became ready to wear!

The 5-10 Minute Agate Nugget Bracelet

 

This is a fabulous bracelet anyone can make in mere minutes!

The black agate nuggets are new to the Dazzle-It group of products.

All I needed was some elastic to re-string this fantastic strand of semi-precious stones.  I chose the stone with the interesting white stripe as my focal piece.  It is hard to say I made the bracelet.  It really made itself.  The chain is a wonderful addition and the 5 Stones make for the perfect measurement for a bracelet.

Semi-Precious Agate Nuggets Facette Rhodium are available in Teal, Natural, Purple, Green and Black.

Each strand is unique.

This bracelet feels wonderful on my wrist!
