Kumihimo is a traditional Japanese braiding technique. I have used the art of kumihimo to make this satin braided cord necklace in silvery grey and shades of pale yellow and ivory. The color variegates along the length of the necklace for a striking design.
Necklace is 24 1/2 inches (62cm) in length. I have hand coiled nickle silver wire into custom end caps which I have glued on and also bent the ends of the coil into the satin to further secure it. This necklace is fastened with an antiqued plated pewter toggle clasp with a rope design (see photos).
