Let's Get Married!


About this design:

This is an 8 cord Kumihimo Braid using silk cord, sterling silver heart and big bling button closure.

Components:

I used 4 cords of Nectarine Silk String 2mm and 4 cords of Teal Silk String 2mm. By putting the cords in the right spaces on the Kumihimo Disk I created this spiral design. I finished up with a big bling button and added a sterling silver heart dangle I call it "Let's Get Married!" since my step-daughter is getting married and these are her colors!

    Orange ‘n green wedding …. ???? I’d love to see that; I know it’s not what I’m imagining; I’ll bet it’s beautiful. What are the colors of herf wedding dress – shades of orange ‘n green or just white? C’mom – you can’t just say “orange ‘n green” and leave us hanging …….

    Good job on the bracelet. That Kuhumino must be lots easier than I thought.

    Excellent design! :)

    I’ve done just enough kumihimo to really appreciate the uniformity of your work.

    Orange and Teal are her colors, I guess the bracelet did not photograph that well.
    I have been doing kumihumo only since January.

    Sorry..her dress is a lovely ivory, antique looking with lots of lace and a key hole back. Very modest front with a sweetheart neckline. The brides maids will wear teal – each is picking out her own style since there are a range of sizes and what may look good on one may not look that good on another – you know how that goes!
    I am thinking of doing the jewelry for all of them.
