Shimmer Twists & Turns was designed using the Japanese style of braiding referred to as kumihimo.
Kumihimo is the Japanese art of braiding.
Historical use of these braided cords is most notably documented by the samurai as both a functional and decorative way to lace their armor.
Kumihimo cords referred to as obijime are used to secure the kimono sash.
My modern day application takes this ancient art form to a different level all together!
Using beautifully hand crafted beads and a variety of seed beads I am creating wearable art in the form of necklaces.
Shimmer Twists & Turns is a 20 inch kumihimo necklace with a copper magnetic clasp.
The design comes together with hand crafted lamp work beads made in southern California and gold lined crystal Japanese seed beads for shimmer!
