A couple of weeks ago I was in a local Hobby Lobby store demoing tie dye with Tulip's One Step Tie Dye kits and this lady came in with what looked like a really wacky windchime. We chatted for a while and I want to say her name was Lynne… I finally asked her about the the wooohickie that she was holding and she said it was a Kumihimo loom she was using to make this cool beaded necklace. I wanted to do that!

Well, in this month's lovely box of goodies from Prima Bead I got all the goods to start creating Kumihimo projects myself for the Prima Bead Team! It was fate! This picture of Kmihimo bracelets is from http://www.susanjeffersonjewelry.com/ – her site has some AMAZING Jewelry–definitely go check it out!
