    Very pretty, Did you do this in kumihimo? I am waiting for my starting kit to come in. Try some thing new and go forward.

    Asia says:

    Julia, “Molto dolche” is a perfect name for it, beautiful :D

  5. AllureofGemsGlamJulia
    AllureofGemsGlamJulia says:

    Thank you, Anna! :) It is kumihimo, but due to these beads being fragile and having smaller holes I decided to use silk (#3)for stringing and glad I did :) They look so “chiffon”…

    AllureofGemsGlamJulia says:

    Asia, thank you so much! They feel like it ;)

    Nice color scheme Julia! Silk is really nice for kumihimo, it’s soft and flexible, but very strong too!

    Thank You, Becky ! :)

    Lovely Julia! This one has an interesting look, very tight almost like coiled rope.

  14. AllureofGemsGlamJulia
    AllureofGemsGlamJulia says:

    Deb, thank You :) I did them as tight as regular ones but… because of their shape they go very tight to each other on outside but… due to my using silk for stringing they are very flexible!

    I just love them! and ordered some more in … very bright colors!

    Very pretty – love it.

    Yet another technique I want to try *sigh*

    Did you take a class or are you self taught?

  18. AllureofGemsGlamJulia
    AllureofGemsGlamJulia says:

    Thank you, Peggy :)

    I watched the video once and… so you may call it self taught :)
