TITLE:
Beaded Kumihimo Silver and Gold Wire Woven Princess Style Necklace

DESCRIPTION:
This delightful statement piece of wearable art is the perfect accent for any formal or business occasion. The Kumihimo braid that forms the back of the necklace is attached by both ends to the wire woven V-Shaped center element. One side of the braid is permanently attached while the opposite end is a hook connection for ease of putting on or taking off of the neck. The clasp disappears from sight. It gives a continuous smooth appearance while wearing. If worn with a bare neckline or with a V-neck Business suit it is the epitome of elegance.

It is approximately 20.75 inches long including down the V-shaped point off the necklace. However, when on the neck properly it lays flat on the clavicle right at the breastbone. It is extremely easy to wear because of the smoothness of the braid and the total weight is only 1.0 ounces.

DEFINITIONS:

KUMIHIMO BRAIDING/WEAVING:
Kumihimo is defined as a braiding technique that is used in the making of long decorative strands. These cords are used in a variety of decorative ways. Some people wear them as bracelets or necklaces. Others use them as functional laces or simply let them swing free. Basic strands are made by looping thread through the fingers in a repetitive manner. Ancient samurai warriors used to decorate their armor and sometimes hold it together using Kumihimo cords. Kumihimo is a fun and colorful part of Japanese heritage.

STATEMENT JEWELRY:
What is Statement Jewelry? ... Statement jewelry is unique and bold and helps the wearer portray who they are through their outward appearance. Wearing bold and stylish jewelry is nothing new, ancient civilizations such as the Egyptians used statement jewelry in ceremonies, rituals, and to show divine favor.
A statement necklace is a necklace that makes a huge statement. It is usually large-sized. It's a great way to spice up an outfit. In order to keep the focus on the statement piece, either opt for no earrings or pair it with small and subtle earrings. Emma Taylor…Blogger

ARTISTIC WIRE AS DESCRIBED BY BEADUCATION: This wire is made by first plating the copper wire with a precision layer of pure silver. Then the enamel color and tarnish resistant coating on top of this silver plating is applied. The silver plating beneath the color, adds an incredible high-shine and brilliance to the wire. Artistic Wire is a permanently colored copper wire available in a wide range of colors and gauges. It has an exclusive enamel coating which is engineered to resist tarnish, chipping and peeling.

TARNISH RESISTANT:
Metal that has been covered with special coating that protects the surface from any oxidation and discoloration of the surface.

WIRE WEAVING/WRAPPING JEWELRY: By Wikipedia
Wire wrapping is one of the oldest techniques for making handmade jewelry. This technique is done with jewelry wire and findings similar to wire (for example, head-pins) to make components. Wire components are then connected to one another using mechanical techniques with no soldering or heating of the wire. Frequently, in this approach, a wire is bent into a loop or other decorative shape and then the wire is wrapped around itself to finish the wire component. This makes the loop or decorative shape permanent. The technique of wrapping wire around itself gives this craft its name of wire wrapping.

Inspiration/Story Behind This Product

This choker was a pure coincidence that happen with quite a surprise to myself. I had made the V-Shaped wire weaving while practicing the weaving technique. I had it stored with all my other projects. One day I was learning the bead weaving technique call Kumihimo. I had used silver glass seed beads for the braiding. I had stopped the braiding at the length of what I used for this necklace. In visualizing how to uses these two components I saw the possibility of attaching them for the necklace shown here. Once I designed the hidden clasp it was all a done deal and this lovely piece of wearable art laid on my work space.

Items worn around the neck have been adornments for the human body for centuries. The necklace has many reasons for wearing. Drawn to the enhancement of neck has been a passion for a very long time. Making wearable art for the neck is part of the human nature that makes us unique and passionate for life and individuality. Creating one of a kind wearable art is my passion.

My work starts as an idea then organic growth takes over until the mind screams STOP!

I consider my work Wearable Art...Miniature Works of Art, are a way to express ones love of things.

Great shipping, great packaging. I just thought the necklace was going to be more browns and greens and darker. It is a pretty necklace but not what I was expecting from the picture.
