Well ditto all of the above! The second, "cherry blossom" is BEAUTIFUL. Perfect choice of colours for an oriental themed bead. Well done Cornish, it's a cracker Very Happy

The oriental theme should be right up my kumihimo street! I made this braid using ribbon yarn and very fine rattail. I had intended to finish off the ends neatly with cones and a clasp, but I loved the look of the ribbon showing so this can just be knotted at the back of the neck and the ribbon and cord will just hang down. I hope it is not too tickly! I haven't got a clue what the chinese characters mean ... any ideas?

Thanks, Gillian. The cord is the easiest of the kumihimo braids. Using interesting yarns makes it look far more intricate than it is!

Pru it is very lovely, as much as I would like to try kumihimo I think I'll leave it to experts like you. Very Happy

Lovely braid Pru, like the tails as an alternative finish. Beautiful ribbon yarn.

Thanks Ashlynn. It is actually a knitting yarn, so metre for metre it is nice and cheap.

Rather surprisingly, I managed to get organised enough to make something for this month's challenge, so here it is: an enamelled pendant with a pierced bamboo design.

I really love that pendant, Elaine. Great bamboo design. I bet that took some hard work.
