This is the Kumihimo I have been working on while waiting for my computer. I really like how these fibers are going together. (Much prettier in person) I have more waiting time to go to be finished and then need a pendant to finish it off.
The other pieces need "something" that I don't have. Actually, I not really sure, exactly, what any of them need. Which means I need a trip to the local bead store. It will be worth while since it will be for three pieces.
These are the Kazuri beads I purchased. The necklace needs more length and of course a clasp. I plan to add an extender as this type of necklace needs to be lengthened for different necklines and for different people. Probably 18 - 20 inches finished. I'll see how things work out. Many factors...
These are great painted wooden beads. I added some black rounds and small white spacers. However, it is too short and needs more .... ???
When I finish all of these pieces I'll post again. It will be interesting to see how similar the finished pieces are to these pictures.
