Blue Danube Necklace

Blue Danube Necklace
A new Kumihimo with Magatama beads
 
 
 
 
 
 
With the time I had waiting for the Hurricane Sandy storm, I had a chain maille class  and then time to make a new Magatama Kumihimo necklace to match a bracelet I made last spring. Here is the bracelet.
 
 
 
 
 
There are 4 different colors in the pattern with the beads strung in random directions. It is similar to the one I called "Firecracker" and showed in a post in June.  I have several bracelets made with this design that you can see them all here.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
I decided that the Blue Danube bracelet could use a matching necklace. The colors are striking and very eye catching. So here is the matching necklace.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
        
 
 
 
 
Here is a close up of the beads. Really beautiful, if I say so myself.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
For those of you who are here in Massachusetts, I will be at a craft fair to benefit the Boston Children's Hospital (Pediatric Advanced Care System) on Saturday, November 10 in West Roxbury, MA at the Elks Club (248 Spring Street) across from the VA hospital from 10 AM to 4 PM.
 
 
Until next week (or Saturday) ,
 
Bev
