A little history about this type of beaded braid.

Kumihimo cord was first created by a form of finger-loop braiding. Later tools such as the marudai and the takadai were employed to make more complex braids in shorter time. The most prominent historical use of the cords was by samurai as both a functional and decorative way to lace their lamellar armour and their horses’ armor (barding). Kumihimo cords are now used as ties on haori jackets and obijimes, which are used for tying on an obi (kimono sash).

I will also be offering Fused Glass Pieces for not only the women but for the men in their lives.

I will also Start another BLOG to post this jewelry and for others to link to who also make pretty things they want top sell.  Let’s support each other.
