Kumihimo is the Japanese form of braid making. The most prominent historical use of the cords was by samurai as both a functional and decorative way to lace their and their horses' armor. Kumihimo cords are now used as ties on jackets and obijimes, which are used for tying on an obi or kimono sash. They also make beautiful necklaces.

The 8-cord beaded braid is made from tiny round garnet beads on silk and features a beautiful large furnace glass bead and 2 sterling brush-finished silver beads. The necklace is adjustable from 17 3/4 to 19 3/4 inches long and the findings are silver.
