“Tara” Bracelet

"Tara" - Kumihimo bracelet in pink and pink

"Tara" - Kumihimo bracelet in pink and pink

This is another variant of Kumihimo, where you use two different sizes of beads — in this case, 4mm oval crystals and size 15 seed beads.  There are four seed beads to every crystal.  I only had enough crystals to mae a bracelet, but sometimes that’s just how it goes.

It’s finished off with a chain and a lobster clasp, which I hardly ever do, but the bracelet was so delicate I felt it needed a delicate closure.  I also wanted it to be easy to fit different-sized wrists.

This is honestly one of my favorite pieces that I’ve made so far.  And I don’t even like pink!

It’ll be up on my etsy shop soon — I’m going to have a big etsy-shop-listing-extravaganza this weekend!
