Rebuilding Nepal Through Trade

In the aftermath of the massive earthquake that struck Nepal in April 2015, DharmaCrafts launched a project to aid the victims of this tragic disaster. Due to your support of Nepalese artisans and Rebuilding Nepal through Trade, DharmaCrafts was able to donate $12,224.00 to relief efforts. We are very happy that together we were able to benefit the victims of this terrible disaster. A large percentage of the donation went to Roshi Joan Halifax's Nepal Earthquake Relief Fund (NERF) set up through Upaya Zen Center and to the Save the Children Fund.

Although our Nepal initiative has officially ended, we encourage you to support Nepalese artisans and their families by purchasing products marked with the prayer flag icon shown above.

Spring Blossoms Pendant Necklace



Artist Kristina Kada captures the graceful hanging of a plum blossom bough in her lovely arching pendant softened by a hyacinth purple cord. The ume or plum blossom is Japan's favorite flower and symbolizes new beginnings, hope and renewal. The adjustable kumihimo cord is hand-dyed and hand-woven (see details page for info and care).

Oxidized sterling silver pendant with matte sterling accents is 2" w x 1 1/4" l and includes the artist's special signature stamp on the back. Adjustable cord is 29" l. Made in the USA.

Materials: Oxidized sterling silver

Size: 2" w x 1 1/4" l

Adjustable silk cord is 29" l

Made in USA

Care of your Kumihimo Cord
Treat the cord as you would a silk garment. Avoid getting the cord wet as much as possible (do not wear in the shower). If necessary, you may hand wash the cord with cold water and a drop of silk detergent. Rinse and completely dry before wearing.

Kristina Kada's art studio rests amid the quiet redwoods in the mountains of Santa Cruz. Inspired by her surroundings, her Japanese heritage, and the many shapes found in botanical forms and architecture, Kristina layers simple elements in repetition to build up richly textured patterns and produce interesting forms. Her classic jewelry techniques employ steel stakes, saw piercing and a hydraulic press to meld freehand elements with original castings.

About the Kumihimo Cord
Each silk necklace cord is hand-dyed and woven into an intricate braid on a wooden, tabletop loom. This technique honors the centuries-old traditional Japanese craft called kumihimo. This is the same technique used for decorative cording on kimonos, samurai sword handles, and the cords for hanging netsuke. The cord ends are finished with sterling silver accents. Due to the size of the finished ends, the kumihimo cord may not be interchanged with another cord or chain without damage.
