Hand Crafted

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.

The 8-cord beaded braid is made from round carnelian beads and features a beautiful clasp featuring two decorative leaf shapes. The necklace is 30 inches long and the findings are gold plated metal. The glass end caps are from Sonoran Beads. Buy this at Lucky Sammy Jewelry
