As some of you may know, I’ve been ADDICTED to beaded Kumihimo but also seem to like unusual gemstones and pendants that I try to incorporate into not only my Kumihimo items, but my other jewelry creations as well.

When I found these pendants at a local craft store, I instantly had to make something that incorporated different bead shapes (round, long magatama) with the pendants.

I like the look of these and it was fun making them.

Also love using long magatama beads in different combinations, even though I have to thread each bead on by hand as the holes are not big enough to use a big eye needed like with the 6/0 or 8/0 seed beads.

Can’t work with anything smaller, both my eyes and fingers have gone on notice 🙂
