kumihimo blue green lariat

Karen DeSousa Design Made By Lucky Sammy Jewelry

Kumihimo is the Japanese form of braid making. The most prominent historical use of the cords was by samurai as both a functional and decorative way to lace their and their horses’ armor. Kumihimo cords are now used as ties on jackets and obijimes, which are used for tying on an obi or kimono sash. They also make beautiful necklaces.

This necklace is fabulous! The large delica beads on the lariet are a beautiful bluish green color. One hundred two lovely Unicorne borosilicate beads are braided onto the ends of this necklace. The necklace is 48 inches long. The findings are gold plated metal.

This pattern was created by Karen DeSousa and I have her permission to use it commercially.
