kumihimo necklace gold 01
This amber beaded kumihimo necklace is a beautiful addition to any collection. The amber and gold necklace is great for dressing up, and for dressing down.

Kumihimo is the traditional Japanese art of braiding. The braids were originally used to tie together samurai’s armor, and was later used to tie the kimono’s obi. Kumihimo can be made on a marudai, or traditional stand. Today many people use a braiding disk.
Beaded kumihimo is created by stringing each bead individually, and anchoring them one at a time in the braid.

The woven bead necklace is made with amber colored glass seed beads, mustard colored cord, and gold chain. It is finished with a gold lobster claw clasp.
