"The Holly and The Ivy" Kumihimo Necklace in Chrysoprase, Aventurine, Sterling Silver, Ruby

My "Holly and The Ivy" necklace is a luxuriously designed with chrysoprase, aventurine, rubies, and sterling silver beads using the Kumihimo technique. The beads are braided on eight strands of stainless steel wire, and finished with sterling silver hand-pierced Ivy leaf (with a jewelry saw) that hooks as the design feature in the front of the necklace. I call this necklace The Holly and The Ivy, but it may be worn any time of year.

The necklace measures 19"

Kumihimo is the art of traditional Japanese braiding, and has been around for about 1,500 years. I am enjoying the design possibilities using this very intriguing and Zen-like technique of braiding.
