New mini art on Kumihimo s the traditional Japanese technique of braiding strands of silk to create intricately colored cords. The cords, also called kumihimo, are strong but slender, and have a multitude of uses. Samurai once used kumihimo as laces for their armor. The traditional belt of the kimono, the obi, was once bound by a cord of kumihimo called an obijime. It is an art both culturally significant and beautiful. In Japanese, the word kumihimo means to gather or combine cord or thread. As the ornately jewel-like ropes suggest, modern kumihimo can involve many strands. I enjoy making them a feel the add a extra special feel and look to my work.

Team Magic

When working as a team magic leader it means being able to connect with the other people . I personally love when that happens! When working with Kids it is magic anyway making it very easy. When working with adults it can be more challenging as there are bad habits and sometimes ego in the way. I feel like with art it is a intuitive process any way so tuning in is important . We all have ideas to share and to grow with and from and it is great when the magic works.
