Sample projects: two key chains, one zipper pull, two necklaces with a Serpentine rock that I polished by hand and shaped, and one homespun cotton yarn with a glass bead. The bracelet was made with cotton yarn and beads. Embroidery thread was used on the others; different number of threads to increase thickness. Photo: Deb Thumler Christensen. Clockwise: a disk with markings before the hole and notches are cut, a bread wrapper clip used as a bobbin and a purchased Kumihimo bobbin. Photo: Deb Thumler Christensen. A dog lead made with cord I bought at the hardware store. Photo: Deb Thumler Christensen.
