I learned how to braid and haven’t been able to stop! It’s easy, relaxing and portable.
I designed this piece of jewelry which you can wear as either a necklace or bracelet.
It’s so simple to make, I thought I would share the technique with you.


transformative necklacetransformative bracelet


The technique is the ancient art of Kumihimo Braiding and I call the jewelry TransformativeTM.


I’ve put together a kit which includes everything you need:

Complete directions for an 8-strand braided necklace/bracelet, Kumihimo 6" disk, 8 bobbins, glue, binding thread,

12 yards of satin cord in your choice of colors and a magnetic clasp of your choosing. All is nicely packaged in a

zippered vinyl pouch, easy to take with you.




Choose your colors and clasp from the chart below.

Choose 2 colors for a simple spiral design or 4 colors for a more complex design.

If you choose 2 colors, you will receive 4 lengths of each color, each 54" long.

If you choose  4 colors, you will receive 2 lengths of each color, each 54" long.

This length of cord will result in a braid between 22" and 25".


Cost: $25 + $5.60 shipping

For other projects, all you will need is more satin cord and additional clasps. Satin
Cord is available for purchase at $.25 per yard ; clasps are $7.00 each.
