Happy Valentine’s Day

Valentine themed Kumihimo necklace

I hope everyone is having a very happy Valentine’s Day. This is a more traditional style of Valentine necklace than the one I posted yesterday. Half Round Braid is just perfect for getting lovely red hearts into a braid. I have based the design of this piece on the Ribbon Pendant. There are two differences. First of all I finished the beaded section with a wrapped loop and the heart charm, instead of a coil. Secondly I wanted the hearts to be all up the same way, so I cut the braid in two, reversed one side so that they were both the same and added a clasp at the back.

I am all ready to celebrate now!
