the variety of different weft yarns are quite evident in the rippling of the edges

it’s a little rustic but looks wonderful with old wood and some of my  pottery

    Hello Jean,
    Where do you find the beautiful findings that you used in the Kumikimo necklace?

    lovely! the rustic nature of the rippling edges will look well if you decide not to press it next time. it’s like linen; best when wrinkled. the kumihimo came out beautifully, and is well suited with the locket. any major fiber plans in the coming year?
