I promised a while ago to post pictures of the Kumhimo Braiding I did over Christmas. The braiding was the easy part. The finishing off has been slower than expected. I can braid while at the hospital or Drs but the bits and pieces needed to finish off are too fiddly to transport. Anyway good things come to those who wait.
This has been braided with rope some traditional Kumihimo silk that I brought back from Japan.
A bit of bling.
This detailed image highlights the different threads I used.
The threads were eco dyed the match the pendant. The braid is actually much closer to the bail on the pendant than it looks in the image. You can see the subtle variation on colour of the thread and the bead
Lariat braided with Eco Dyed Rayon in Purple and Dark Gold.
