Kumihimo Woven Bracelet, Back/Silver Satin Rattail, Rhinestone Heart
Elegant black and silver satin rattail cords woven in the traditional Japanese method of braiding Kumihimo into a bracelet, embellished with 3 large-hole rhinestone circles and a toggle clasp with a dangling pave' rhinestone heart.
The technique of Kumihimo dates back to the time of the samurai. It was used to lace together various parts of the samurai armor. In Japan today, these cords are used for ceremonial pulls and tassels, embellishments on clothing, and as ties for the obi sash to hold kimonos closed.
Any manner of cording, ribbon or yarn can be used to create the Kumihimo cords, and I have combined a great many different ones in some of the other bracelets that I have, or will be listiing.
The bracelet measures 8" in length, and is a little over a quarter inch in width.
