Swarovski crystals, jewel toned #8 Czech seed beads, David Christensen furnace glass focal pendant Bali beads.
What was your inspiration?
I have been looking for a look to highlight some David Christensen glass I have and when I tried kumihimo I came up with this necklace.
What are you most proud of?
I like how the necklace flows from the beaded kimihimo through to the Swarovski crystals.
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
Make sure you use a weight to create consistent tension on the braid or your braid and beads will have a lumpy look. Lots of extra clon thread is a must or the weight of the beads will strip the thread out of your bobbins and you will be playing pickup!!!
