Sort through your bead stash for leftover seed beads and turn them into one or more (depending on the size of your stash) rope-style kumihimo patterns. You can mix them into a “bead stew” with assorted colors, or use alternating spiral, geometric or floral kumihimo designs as your braid until you have the desired length!
This simple, yet elegant rope is an example of how versatile kumihimo patterns can be when worked with beads and jewelry findings. The “Kumi-Rope” can be worn as a necklace or belt!
Hand-braided with over 7,000 size 6-0 Japanese glass seed beads and assorted pewter findings, the 54-inch rope is most definitely one-of-a-kind and is a fitting logo for BeadedKumihimo.com.
“And He has filled [her] with the Spirit of God, with wisdom, with understanding, with knowledge and with all kinds of skills–to make artistic designs for work in gold, silver and bronze…to engage in all kinds of artistic crafts.” (Exodus 35:31-33)
Kumihimo ropes can be 30 inches or longer. This 34–inch patterned rope is part of a jewelry set with matching earrings and dangling tassel beads.
The pattern for this gorgeous necklace was purchased on Etsy, and warm complementary colors were chosen for the 8-0 glass beads.
Silver, ivory, fire polish and specialty beads extend the rope even further than the beaded length, and are included in the matching earrings.
