Burgundy Gold Magatama Miyuki Pink Blush Handmade Kumihimo Bracelet

Details

Rich and elegant bracelet using fabulous Miyuki long magatama glass beads and Miyuki Japanese galvanized pink blush seed beads. The Miyuki magatama beads are in a shade called burgundy gold luster. A deep, rich aged cabernet red with a golden sheen. As the light travels through the magatamas you will see rich flashes of red color. I have named this bracelet "Suri's Petals". Suri is an ancient Persian name meaning red rose. I have paired the magatamas with another beautiful Japanese seed bead. Miyuki has created a shade called galvanized pink blush. These glass seed beads have an almost copper color but with a warmer tone. Pairing them next to the burgundy gold magatamas really enhances the warm sheen.

This bracelet was created using the old Japanese kumihimo braiding technique. This is called an 8 warp thread spiral. As the bracelet turns you will see both the magatamas and seed beads moving round in a spiral motion. Kumihimo braiding is an ancient art and the word "kumihimo", in Japanese, literally means "gathered threads". I created this bracelet using the 8 warp braiding technique using C-lon mahogany beading thread. This beading thread has a rich reddish brown color. This weaving takes several hours but is well worth the effort.

The bracelet is finished off with two antique copper JBB end caps. JBB is based in Israel and has been creating quality findings for over 35 years. On top of each end cap I added small antique copper daisy spacers and a Swarovski Siam crystal bicone. The end caps are wired on using brown artistic wire. The closure is a flowing TierraCast antique copper melody toggle. The toggle bar has curling ends making it hold the toggle securely.

This bracelet is 8 1/2 inches in length. Due to the thickness of the braiding this bracelet is made to fit a 7 to 7 1/2 inch average sized wrist. The width of the bracelet is 1/2 inch. Make sure you measure to ensure a good fit. Measure your wrist by using a flexible measuring tape, measure just above (towards elbow) the wrist bone, then add 1/4" to 1 " (1/2" is average) depending on how tight you like your bracelets to fit. That is the size bracelet you would wear. These bracelets cannot be re-sized.

Materials:
*4x7mm Miyuki magatama burgundy gold luster glass beads
*6/0 Miyumi galvanized pink blush glass seed beads
*8mm JBB antique copper end caps
*4mm Swarovski 5301 Siam crystal bicones
*TierraCast antique copper melody toggle
*C-Lon mahogany beading thread

Inspiration/Story Behind This Product

When I look at this bracelet I see images of ancient Persia and decadent old cabernet wines. A real delight to the eyes and senses. This bracelet would look wonderful with browns, greens, deep blues and burgundy outfits. Would also look outstanding with any of the neutral shades.

Japanese kumihimo braiding is a wonderful art. Traditional Japanese braiding dates back to around 800 AD. Kumihimo silk braids were used for lacing together Samurai armor pieces. They are still used today for the decorative tassels on scrolls, ties on silk "haori" jackets and the thin silk braided belt that is used to hold on the "obi" belt wrapped around the traditional Japanese kimono worn for ceremonies and special occasions.

Materials Used

Japanese long magatama glass beads, Miyuki glass seed beads, C-Lon mahogany beading thread, JBB antique copper end caps, Swarovski Siam crystal bicones, TierraCast antique copper melody toggle
