A Necklace 'First' for Me!

While I wait for supplies to arrive so I can finish the latest bracelet, more beads did arrive today. I have wanted to make another necklace and today was the day for it.

To make a necklace I needed to use some very long lengths of tail hair. The length was about one metre. Again this was a simple 8 warp kumihimo design using 3 strands of horse hair per warp.

I used a subtle mix of miyuki beads in the braid plus some champagne beads. The little miyuki beads take patience to thread but the end result is really quite stunning for a first try.
