Kumihimo #2

Now that I figured out how to braid fibers, I wanted to make one for Stephanie.  It needed to match her pendant, so here is what I made last night:

I still think it needs another component for balance, so I just temporarily wrapped one of my chain maille bracelets for the picture.  Stephanie, if you read this, think about adding beads or metal to the braided part.

I like the colors better in this one with matching the pendant.  I used about 20 strands of yarn/fibers in the braid above.

Next, my artistic harmony turns to quilting.  Have lots of quilts to do before Christmas, so I had best get busy!!  I’m also planning another “Carla and Lori Creative Adventure Week” in early January.   This entails a drive to Manhattan Beach with a car loaded with art supplies.  We take over Lori’s living room, and make a HUGE MESS while pursuing our art.  We also teach each other what we have learned since the last Creative Adventure Week.  I come back home with my brain exploding with creative thoughts!!  LOL!

Enjoy your day and do something creative!  Hugs, Carla
