From the Vault: Day 24 Bracelet...

Here's another piece that I created for the Fusion Beads 30 Day Bead Challenge.  The prompt for Day 24 of the celebration of National Craft Month was to learn a new technique.

For this challenge, I asked William to show me how to kumihimo.  I've been watching William and his mom do it for awhile, so I picked it up pretty quick.  It's super fun!  I used eyelash ribbon in my design and it gave the piece an extra dimension and texture.  From the bracelet, I hung one of my new White Copper Octopus/Kraken Pendants.  I used Gilder's Paste and Vintaj patinas to add some color to the recesses of the pendant.

I'm quite pleased.  I think the bracelet is fun and definitely has an ocean vibe.  PLUS, I also finally learned how to kumihimo!
