Kumihimo is a traditional Japenese braiding technique. I have braided this necklace using 8 strands of satin cord in a silver grey and a light golden brown color in a barber pole pattern.
Necklace is approximately 19 inches (48cm) in length and 8mm in diameter. I have hand coiled end caps from nickel silver wire and added a twisted rope design toggle clasp in antiqued silver plated metal.
After gluing the end caps in place, I bend the end of the coils into the satin strand to further secure it. The smooth, round satin braid is light weight and easy to wear.
