Kumihimo Braiding Project for Experienced Weavers
This project may be difficult for beginner kumihimo braiders. It involves working with multiple focal beads of different sizes and textures. Although the ropes are not made with complex kumihimo techniques, they do require experience with kumihimo braiding around a fabric core.
Working with the jewelry findings in this necklace can be challenging as well, and the way the project is finished is different than with the ends of a traditional beaded kumihimo necklace.
“The earth brought forth vegetation, plants yielding seed after their kind, and trees bearing fruit with seed in them, after their kind; and God saw that it was good.” (Genesis 1:12)
