Romance is in the air..

Love is in there air. TV shows, movies, and even TV commercials all have us thinking about showing our special Valentine that we love or think they are special. And just in time for Valentine's Day, I wanted to feature a few new kumihimo designs I've made with tender, loving care. I love the idea of taking two separate totally different pieces - both wonderful as stand-alone parts themselves - and matching them together in perfect harmony that somehow manages to elevate and accentuate their differences, and make them really pop. You've heard it before, opposites attract, and the opposite colors, textures and shapes brought together really attracted my attention in these lovely pieces.

Romantic pink Rhodonite rounds, spotted pink jasper, mixed with gun metal blocks and rose blush chinese crystal rondelles are the perfect contrasts of hard and soft. Enjoy the edgier straight lines and dark rich colors of the gun metal glass blocks brought together with the roundness and soft colors of the blush pink rhodonite and natural semi-precious stones joined together in the ancient Japanese Kumihimo weave really accentuate and bring out the differences of the two opposites.
Necklace measures 19"-21"

Either for youself or as a gift, this bracelet will totally rock any pink, grey, black, and even white outfit.

Modernized design using glass blocks will look great with a variety of outfit styles and colors.
