Remember Elle Woods?
She's the really superficial and fashionable law student from Legally Blonde.
{played by Reese Witherspoon}
Full disclosure: I L.O.V.E this movie...and I'm a lawyer who
is more obsessed with beading than with the law.  
So there's that.
A few years ago, people literally went KUMIHIMO crazy.  
Everybody and their mother had a Kumihimo Key Chain, perfectly
paired with a cord known as rat tail.  (Yeah...the name doesn't
do the cord justice)
Eventually, however, people got tired of it.  As is to be expected.
Fast Forward a few years, and here we are today... re-discovering
this beautiful knot known as Kumihimo.   
Except this time, we're doing Kumihimo in a much more fashion
forward way.  We thought to ourselves:
How would Elle Woods wear a Kumihimo Necklace?  

This tutorial is our answer to that question.  Find out exactly how Elle Woods 
would do it in the video at the bottom of this article.
.
Materials:
2. Braided Cord (4 inches)
7. Bell End Cord 10x8mm
8. Curved Tube 3mm
9. Hook and Eye Clasp 13mm

Now we want to hear from you!  
Do you remember the Kumihimo craze from a few years ago?
Did you actually make one? Or is this the FIRST time you even hear that weird word?
Send us a quick reply to this e-mail and let us know what you think!  

Or just say hi!  We love hearing from you :)

Gracias y Felíz Año Nuevo!
