Rhythm Necklace, hand crafted from Sterling silver, Amethyst, Swarovski pearls and crystals

18” long

A Japanese braiding technique over 1500 years old. The once simple
finger-loop braiding technique developed into a complex one, including
various designs and patterns that brought about new tools and a newfound
importance to materials. Kumihimo braids, once used to tie the samurai’s
armour together, began to play a role in religion, tea ceremonies, and
eventually into jewellery.

Rhythm features two braids, one with Swarovski pearls and spades, the
other with the same pearls and amethyst chips; and each braid done with a
specific spiral pattern. In the necklace there are 100 spades, 100 amethyst
chips, and over400 pearls.
