My Rainbow


About this design:

A fun rainbow of color! A kumihimo created with multi-colored shell heishi bead. I love kumihimo braiding! It is so relaxing, I just sorta go to my "special place" when I'm working.

Components:

Multi-colored 7x4mm shell heishi beads, magnetic clasp

    This has such a happy feel to it. It reminds me of candy necklaces,but MUCH more grownup.
    Your technique is amazing.
    I know what you mean about the “special place.”

    Thanks for all the nice compliments! It does remind me of the candy necklaces! Plus it really looks great with a white tee.Thanks again!

    And to Kats, I have used all sorts of beads with kumihimo to create different looks and textures. I’s fun to experiment!
