Belly Dancer Coin Kumihimo Bracelet Tutorial

By on Wednesday, June 04, 2014 2 Comments

Someone I know back in Halifax lucked out on a large supply of belly dancer jewelry supplies! Lucky her!  If you've ever seen belly dancer jewelry, you'll know they are designed for sound, movement and perhaps to shimmer with every shimmy! Coin charms are popular components as they do look fabulous when used in long sections like in the belts.

So here is a great kumihimo bracelet tutorial by Alison over at Dream a Little Bigger utilizing a great many coin charms.

Although it is possible to attach the charms with their jump rings after a kumihimo bracelet is made, Alison's way of incorporating them much like for beads will ensure even distribution.

Today belly dance is popular world wide. It originated in the Middle East long ago. It is both a social dance (by ordinary people in regular clothes) and a performance art there.  While belly dance in the West often comes across as sexy, this cultural dance is also known as a wonderful form of exercise. Those stomach muscles, abs, lower back and hips really do get a good work out.

Check out this belly dance fitness video by twins Veena and Neena and see what I mean! There are a whole ton of basic belly dance fitness videos on Youtube.

  1. The bracelet looks fun. I have a lush charm bracelet that I love to wear and enjoy the bell like tinkling of its little charms. However I had a friend who told me she found the "noise" very annoying.

    As for the comment of Anonymous, I'd recommend against the CAPTCH as many dislike having to decode them. However if they are absolutely keen about having one - all they have to do is Google or search CAPTCHA code and they'll get pages and pages of sites that offer them.

  2. Tinkly jewelry is very much a personal preference!

    Thanks for mentioning the previous comment which was a spam one. I must have missed it moderation. It is now gone forever!
