Thank you for visiting this site. Happy, healthy and safe holidays and a very creative New Year! - Marion

Here in Northern California, El Niño is back, so we have had waves of storm, lots of rain and a bit of sunshine peaking in between. El Niño is a warm ocean current along the pacific that reoccurs every 4-7 years around Christmas, thus the name of El Niño, the Christ child in Spanish.

Still looking for a last minute gift, you may still have time to place an order. For domestic orders, December 20 is the last day for First Class Mail, December 21 for Priority Mail orders and December 22 is the last day for Express Mail for Christmas arrivals depending on location. To check transit time, go to the USPS Postage Calculator and enter 94062 as the departing zip code.

WORKSHOP AT BABE! 2012 - Friday, November 2, 2012

The class was great. Look forward to BABE 2013. This time most likely I will be teaching Cavandoli Knotting 2.0! - Marion

Crown Knotting Class

Crown knotting or the crown knot sennit is an elegant solution for stringing beads with larger holes such as antique beads and keeping them from touching each other. The crown knots have many advantages over traditional overhand knots. The knots are completely symmetrical. They are easier to keep snug against the beads and are especially well suited when stringing beads with large holes or uneven holes as the ratio between the cord going through the beads and the actual size of the knot is much larger than with overhand knots.

This class will teach how to tie 4-strand crown knots with the use of a kumihimo disk, a method that makes this process much easier to learn and master especially when working with multiple cords. The class project will integrate the clasp with a button and loop seamlessly with no loose thread or thread ends remaining.

Bead Kumihimo Cluster Kits > NEW KITS
Bead Cluster Kumihimo Kits Bead Cluster Kumihimo Kits Bead Cluster Kumihimo Kit Bead Cluster Kumihimo Kits
This kit creates braids with segments, intervals with fiber only and beads clusters in section. This is an area of kumihimo that has been of interest for me for a while. I have been playing around in my spare time with samples in this genre. Read my blog about playing around with segments. Check this new kit, it has a distinctive look and can be the base of other pieces with bead clusters and segments, mixing beads and fiber, with both remaining important elements of the final design. The kit is a great way to explore bead and fiber kumihimo. The ribbon is laid out, cut and tied together, so you will be braiding in no time. The tool kit includes a project bag to make it easy to take your kumi to go!
 

Chinese Knotting Cord > New Colors, New Sizes

New fabulous Chinese Knotting Cord in several sizes just came in, plus additional colors of the new Micro H size. More choices creates some confusion, but it is well worth the hassle. Diversity, individuality and choice in designs is what it is all about and it can not be done with a narrow color palette or few choices as to cord size. I want many choices as to colors, sizes and cord quality. I hope you feel the same way!

My own twist on this modern version of a Chinese square knot bracelet. This one is out of survival due to the large number of inquiries I get. It has been on my to-do-list for a while, but of course I had to make a bunch of them, test them in the real world by seeing what my customers liked best, refine the technique and find some of my own solutions. Then the writing came in, the illustrations and the instructions had to be tested. After a few revisions and additions, it's a go.

Kits are available as well as additional bead & cord packages. PDF instructions can be purchased by themselves.

May 28, 2012 - Griffin Jewelry Silk Available by the Spool

Silk is an amazing fiber to work with. It lays so well and is particularly suited for pearls, coral, jade and other softer material as it does not damage the beads yet it is still strong. The Griffin Jewelry Silk is a tightly twisted 3-ply filament silk cord with no lint or broken filaments. It is widely available in cards as a 2-ply cordon version with a needle attached, but in the card form the putout is only 2 meter (79 inches) long. Learn how to make your own 2-ply cord with Griffin Jewelry Silk on spool or use this cord just as is for many applications requiring high quality silk.

Chinese Knotting Cord - NEW COLORS !
Chinese Knotting Cord Chinese Knotting Cord is the best material to use many types of Chinese and Asian knotting and for Shambala style square knot bracelets. The braided nylon cord is fusible, so the ends can be burnt. It is durable and it has just enough grip and body to knots well. On the minus side, dye lot variations are so large at times that it's not even the same color, making it hard to match colors. These hurdles can be overcome with proper planning and overlooked as this material is truly unique. Make sure to check the new colors!

Chinese Knotting Cord now available in 7 sizes listed from larger to thinnest
> STANDARD SIZES
- 18 colors of Medium Weight - 82 yards skeins or 10 yards cards
- 5 colors of 1mm Weight - 10 yards cards New Size
- 18 colors of Fine Weight - 82 yards skeins or 10 yards cards
- 20 colors of Extra Fine Weight - 10 yards cards
> MICRO SIZES
- 60+ colors in the Size G
- 10 colors of Size F
- 15 colors of Size E
