Ankara Kumihimo Pendant

Ankara Kumihimo Pendant

I’ve been in a kumihimo mood lately. I like playing the these magatama beads. They look like feathers when you line them up to go in one direction. That is soothing in some way. The pendant is kind of an organic shape, almost a triangle. It took shape as I worked on it. I like to begin with a few beads and see where it takes me. My photos may not show the bead embroidery. The back of the pendant is partially beaded also, just to have a secret little prettiness for the wearer.

New Project Part 2

Can’t decide whether to leave this cellini necklace as is or to add a pendant. Any thoughts? I would bead all around the stone so it would look different. The stone actually is shades of gray and purple and matches the beads. I am still working on the beading and there are threads everywhere but I will take care of them later. newproject
