I made this beaded Kumihimo bracelet for my partner calixita in the Box of Color Swap.  The beads aren't as peacocky as I would have liked but the stores in my area seem to carry a small selection of colors.

I got 99 problems, but a stitch ain't one.

Thanks all!  I really hate stringing all those beads but love the way these look when they are finished.

I think it looks quite "peacocky" with those colors. Smiley
Lovely. Seeing things like this make me wish I wore jewelry!

I love the colors of my new bracelet!!
I tried to take better pictures today but as we had more snow than sun, they still didn't turn out so good.  This one sort of shows off the colors.

My new sun catcher is in my kitchen window doing its best to brighten the world, my bunny is adorning a book shelf (my comic and graphic novel section!) and I worn my new peacock necklace to work tonight and received lots of compliments!!
Thank you again for my wonderful box of color!
