Sunset Orange and Cream Kumihimo 7 1/2 inch Spiral Bracelet

Details

Effervescent sunset orange color is mixed with a light beige linen in these precision cut Toho Japanese seed beads. These shades are light and airy for spring and were inspired by Pantone's 2013 shades of nectarine and linen. The sunset orange Toho Japanese glass beads are gilt lined which shines through the soft orange adding a slight shimmer that will catch the light. Keeping in mind the spring theme I have added a lovely JBB gold-plated butterfly charm. On each end of the bracelet are gold-plated bead caps that have been etched with crosses.

The spiral design of this bracelet was created by using the ancient Japanese art called Kumihimo. See more about the art of Kumihimo in the next section below. To really enhance the spiral design I mixed two sizes of seed beads

This bracelet is 7 1/2 inches in length and closes with a gold-plated trigger clasp.

Measuring for your bracelet:

Measure around your wrist, just above the wrist bone, with tape measure, then use the following guidelines.
Add 3/4 - 1 inch for a comfortable fit. The bracelets will move freely and charm styles will dangle nicely.
Add 1 1/4 inch for a looser fit. OK for toggles and best for larger, chunky bead styles

Materials used:
*6/0 Toho gilt lined sunset orange Japanese glass seed beads
*8/0 Toho round opaque light beige Japanese glass seed beads
*8mm antique gold-plated pewter cross bead caps
*18mm JBB gold-plated butterfly
*15x8mm gold-plated trigger clasp

Thank you for visiting my studio!

Inspiration/Story Behind This Product

Kumihimo is the general name for a variety of Japanese techniques which date from around 550 C.E. The braids created by Japanese craftsmen served both ornamental and essential purposes, providing a means to fasten and decorate clothing; wrap knives & swords; hang banners, mirrors, and musical instruments; bundle carrying and storage wrappings and more. They were also an integral part of the unique Samurai armor, which was constructed of numerous lacquered plates laced together with braids to form a protective covering. Construction methods were closely guarded secrets, passed from master to apprentice through the ages. After the age of the Samurai had passed, this art was used in fashion.

Materials Used

Japanese Toho glass sunset orange rounds, Japanese Toho glass opaque light beige rounds, JBB butterfly charm, gold plated cross caps, gold plated trigger clasp, CLon white beading thread, gold snapeez jump rings
