kumihimo and wire necklace

today I taught a class with my friend carmi
to a group of CHA members at john bead
first carmi showed us how to make the basic kumihimo braid
(4-6 inches of braid works great 
 and even the beginners got theirs made in less than an hour)
for the pendant I used 12 gauge aluminum wire  to make the heart
and 18 gauge to decorate

aluminum wire is easy to bend and is great to practice with before
moving on to more expensive wire
