Kumihimo Wirework Made Easy: Kys Bracelet

When creating the design for the Kys Bracelet for Kumihimo Wirework Made Easy, author Christina Larsen knew she wanted to pay tribute to a place near and dear to her heart, Denmark.

Crossing copper accent wires create little x’s throughout this elegant bracelet. It’s from these x’s, a universal symbol for kisses that Christina named the design Kys, which means kisses in Danish. A subtle homage to her roots, Christina’s Kys Bracelet is a delicate piece of jewelry you’ll love wearing everyday.
