For the new kumihimo necklace something in the colours of the evening sky is coming into view in my imagination. Soft muted colours mainly, with perhaps a hint of warmer orange.
|Very fine wire - used to bind a fishing fly.|
This new piece will involve trying out a new technique, as I'm going to include some fine wire to add some extra texture to the necklace and help it to retain a circlet shape. When I say thin I mean really thin, as this is the kind of wire used by fly fishermen to make little fishing flies.
I finished my latest bead embroidered neckpiece yesterday afternoon and I'm really happy with it. It sits on the neck well, as the strap has a nice curve to it. The strap was inspired by some ladder-like patterns I saw when looking at some Aztec textile designs and I'm glad I was bold with the colour scheme.
