Kumihimio Bracelet with Sea Glass Cluster
The “frosting” on your piece can fade with wear due to contact with oils in the skin. You can clean your sea glass or pottery regularly by washing in mild soapy water. For braided jewelry use a damp cloth on the sea glass or pottery only to avoid wetting the braid. Use a soft toothbrush to gently scrub any marks or grime. If you polish parts of the piece with a soft cloth for jewelry cleaning, avoid rubbing the glass or pottery. Allow plenty of time to air dry before storing.
くみひも - Kumihimo “Gathering of Threads”
Kumihimo is a traditional Japanese form of braid-making that dates back to the Nara period in the 8th century. The art was a closely guarded secret, passed down through oral tradition. Historically it has been used in clothing, religious ceremonies, and for lacing armor and weaponry.
The repetitions of the braiding process used to create your jewelry are very soothing, similar to the rhythmic sounds of the ocean waves that create sea glass and sea pottery.
A very natural pairing!
