Red Braid Bracelet
A single wrap kumihio bracelet using red with flecks of pink and green. This bracelet fits up to an 8 inch wrist and it fits me of course with a smaller 6.5inch wrist without seeming overly loose. Maybe not a bloke clasp but you get there idea that someone with a larger wrist measurement is going to be fine with this.
This is a 12 thread braid and measures 5mm round.
I learned how to make these several years ago and thought maybe I'd incorporate glass beads into these designs but they have a life of their own and I enjoy the colours and process. I'm offering them here to give them a wider audience.
Kumihimo is a traditional Japanese artform of making braids and cords. Literally meaning "gathered threads", kumihimo are made by interlacing strands to make a strong decorative braided cord.
Hand made by me in batches and then I leave them for months. I'm on a roll at the moment and have ordered new colours.
