Kumihimo Jewelry

What the heck is kumihimo? It's a Japanese form of cord making by braiding cord or ribbon.
I have a dear sister in law that is allergic to metals,ALL metals. I remembered that long ago I learned a technique of braiding round cord and looked for a wheel to make some for her..My love of kumihimo was renewed!
I braided a gift for Christamas, I know she'll be thrilled. She loves jewelry just can't wear it!
I also just finished this lovely labradorite flower necklace.
