Kumihimo is a type of braiding done on a wheel. It is believed the Japanese created this and was used by Samurai Warriors hundreds of years ago to strap their weapons onto their bodies. Nowadays, we have downsized the application and (of course) blinged it up with beads to make a beautiful, but virtually indestructible necklace!
Made with size 8/0 Miyuki seed beads in silver, and purple cord, with magnetic clasp. Necklace is 19" long.
