Hand Weaving-Kumihimo

This collection features Kumihimo, a 4th century Japanese hand weaving technique in which silk threads are braided into decorative cords. The unique textural quality of hand woven Chainmail and Viking Knit chains are also represented. This is a selection of jewelry created from 2000 to the present. Some pieces may be for sale, others have been sold. For listings of current work for sale, see my available works page.
