eautiful view from my friend Margie's condo in Ormond beach. We are having a small R&R weekend, well deserved I might add. Rough week.
racelet. We both just took a class to learn how to make Kumihimo bracelets which is a Japanese weaving technique.
It is pretty easy to do, but labor intensive and you must, must concentrate on what you are doing, otherwise you skip a bead and your bracelet is ruined. I speak from experience. Ruined a couple! You can always redo the bracelet, but you will never get back the two hours you lost making it. :(
Bundle of Beads looks like before it is woven into a bracelet. 32 beads on each strand. More if the beads are smaller.
Beers while we worked, along with a plate of guac and crackers, because when we are at the beach, there is a lot of noshing and beading going on.
Here is my finished pearl/crystal bracelet, and I must say it's a Beauty!
