Kumihimo Necklace with Peyote Bead Focal

This project was a real pain in the neck, and I won't be doing it again. I love the kumihimo part, which was done with #15 seed beads on a fine beading thread. It took a very long time to do, however, and there are a couple of spots where there was no bead. The embroidered peyote bead wasn't fun however. But in a while, I may feel a lot better about the necklace than I do now!

Stunning piece. What did you not like about the project.

Cindy... Do you remember doing kumihimo years ago in Ithaca with Masa Kinoshita??? Wonder where she is now? Your necklace is lovely (the alpaca shawl, too!)

Are you still in the water? We're landlubbing at the beach a lot down here in sunny Savannah. Come on down!
