Soft sky blue, light teal, and bright fuchsia have been hand woven together in this beautiful braid. 16 strands of cotton DMC embroidery floss intertwined to make a spotted spiral pattern down the length of the bracelet. Bracelet findings are made of decorative Tibetan Silver with a very neat pattern and a silver lobster clasp and spring rings.


End caps have been attached to the braid with a 2 part epoxy resin (not just superglued) for an heirloom quality bracelet that will last for years to come. Bracelet measures 8 1/2" (21.7cm) long, perfect for a longer bracelet or an anklet!

Hand braided using an ancient Japanese art known as Kumihimo, which literally means "coming together (kumi) of threads (himo)". Cords are woven together on a round loom called a marudai, which traditionally is a round wooden stand or a sturdy slotted foam disk with an open center where the finished braid emerges. Different color designs are created
when initially starting the braid, and then strands are moved in a repeating pattern until the braid is complete.

Samurai used kumihimo braids to decorate their weapons and armor, embellishments for their horses' tack, and decorative ways to secure kimonos. The braids are soft but very durable and stretch slightly.
