52 earrings: #30 Orange Chevrons

I’ve collected a nice pile of different colours of embroidery threads to use for my kumihimo. Here’s a pair of earrings I did in oranges, pink, peach and ochre.

#30 Orange Chevrons

13.07.21_E30_OrangeChevrons_01

The kumihimo is a flat braid chevron pattern – I had some difficulties with the tension in this braid, had to go in and tighten it up some more and then found I had tightened it too much in places… I work without weights on the threads and I suspect this braid would have been easier with them.

I wire-wrapped the tops of the braids in copper and knotted the tassels at the bottom, some with frosted seed beads on them.
