Kumihimo and more show!

Actually the Kumihimo (ancient Japanese braiding) is show related! I made this necklace to wear at the show's festive events on Thursday and Friday nights. There are 8 strands of beads which are woven together and I made the lion from polymer clay - notice the neat dreadlocks - some also beaded! Look for a closeup of this handsome guy at the end.

Now back to the show gallery:

And there's still more!!!
We'll have to have another posting dedicated to this wonderful gallery! Check back tomorrow!!
Finally, a close-up of my swell lion on my kumihimo beaded necklace.
I had the great honor of attending a class given by polymer artist Christi Friesen. This lion is based on one of her pendants in her book "Cats." I've begun adding lions to my friends this year in brown and a solid white for this show. I have plans for gray and other colors as well.
See any resemblance??
