Copper and Kumihimo

6 Oct

Copper and Kumihimo: two elements that are fun to work with and go well together. In this necklace, we combined kumihimo braiding using Magatama seed beads, cube beads, and copper wire elements. The copper has a patina to give it an aged look. The wire beads were done by wrapping copper wire around a dowel to start and then hand forming to finish. The ends of the kumihimo are wrapped with the same aged copper wire to keep the elements uniform. Magatama seed beads were threaded onto the copper jump rings to add color contrast.

This is just one of our designs incorporating the ancient art of Kumihimo. Click here to see more creations CAAZandEffect
