Lately, though, I have discovered the joy of weaving Kumihimo pieces........with beads and without. Over the years I have amassed quite a collection of fibers, and of seed beads.....enough to keep me busy making bracelets and necklaces for a good while (and in my case, through ALL the snowstorms we've been having).
First up - satin cord; vermeil toggle clasp; gold seed beads - eight strand kumihimo braid bracelet.
Second - red seed beads; copper bali-style cones; sweet copper heart clasp; eight strand kumihimo with seed beads bracelet.
Third - two color seed beads; silver cones; silver toggle clasp; eight strand kumihimo and seed bead bracelet.
This is open to all active bloggers, worldwide. All you have to do to be entered into the "hat" is to leave a comment on my blog - and please make sure you leave a way for me to contact you - so I can visit YOUR blog, and so I know who you are when you win. :-)
I will close the post to comments on the evening of February 16, 2011 and will pick three winners using a random number generator. Please check back here on February 17, 2011 as I will announce the winners here on my blog. (don't worry, I'm sure I'll be so excited I'll both email you and announce here - just to cover all bases!)
Good luck - and have a really good time on your journey through blogland. So good to "meet" you!
