Kumihimo Wirework Made Easy: Cabochon Necklace

When author Christina Larsen was creating designs for her book Kumihimo Wirework Made Easy, she knew she wanted to include a design that featured a cabochon.

The resulting Cabochon Necklace design turned out exactly as she hoped it would! Utilizing a cross kumihimo braid structure, to encircle the cabochon, this lovely pendant would be the perfect everyday accessory!
