Remember last week when I was struggling with my ends?! Well, thanks to you all reminding me not to give up, I did persevere and found the larger Kumihimo ends I needed in the bronze tone to finish the necklace properly.
It's much tidier now, and I can think about starting my next braiding project. There was almost a Sunday morning visit to A&E when I tried (thankfully unsuccessfully!) to glue the ends and the wire to my hand, but I'm sure with practise, it will all become much less hazardous.
I was lucky enough to go to the Hobbycrafts show at the NEC on Saturday and bought some lovely colour rattail, so watch this space for more braided necklaces and bracelet.
Here's a picture of the Kumihimo disc as requested, all set up with some pink and navy threads.
My only other make this week was a necklace and earrings set. They are a bit of an experiment and the technique needs some refining (that means, the back side looks like a right dog's breakfast), but I thought I'd show them anyway. I've nicknamed them the stained glass window set - they do look best in strong light where the gem colours look transparent. Perhaps they need adapting into sun catchers or something like that - any ideas?
