For this author, creative endeavors have been sorely tested by motherhood. But also transformed, and in ways she wouldn’t have imagined – couldn’t have, without her life “rewritten” as it has been, by her children. So linger here, to read all things weaverly, writerly and motherly.

Japanese Braiding

I’m working on a necklace series on the Kumi Loom, a portable loom for Japanese braiding.  Kumihumo is the  Japanese term for braiding. Such a simple rhythmic overlapping of ribbons and yarns, around and around the small loom. The potential for complex patterns is endless. What is particularly interesting is how the texture of yarn can actually change as it is pulled into the braid.
