Unfinished Kumihimo Projects

This tiered necklace is a collection of different strands.

It began with two unfinished Fernando DaSilva braids.

Fernando DaSilva is our Product Development & Creative Manager.  He makes so many samples!  I could just follow him around picking up leftovers.  These two pieces he whipped up and didn’t have time to finish, so I swooped them up!

The green and black beaded braid was too small for a necklace and too big for a bracelet, so I decided to incorporate it into a tiered necklace.  I made one extra 8-strand kumihimo braid to pull my idea together. The Dazzle-it rattail colour selection is so great!  I can usually match any colour palette.

I have shown you many time how easy it is to finish a kumihimo braid with our end caps and Quick Grip glue.

My braid simply frames Fernando’s beautifully beaded sample.

I then added the gold chain to complete the project.  Wait till you see what I am making with the second sample!  I’ll post it next week!
