“Amy” necklace

“I’ll give you a witch!”

I just discovered a form of japanese braiding called kumihimo, and I am in love. When you add beads, it looks just like bead crochet.  Gypsy pronounced this to be “kumibeado” and I think that’s just perfect.

This is a simple kumibeado necklace, done with all size 8 seed beads in two colors of red.
