About this title


Kumihimo moves into the next generation of crafting. This book shows how to integrate kumihimo with beadweaving to make beautiful jewelry. The book includes new braiding patterns that include flat, square and round braids all made on the round disk. Two sided braids where each side is unique and gorgeous. Patterns for bangle bracelets with hidden channels for pearls and crystals. Braided earrings for dangle or post which are stylish and sparkly and fun to wear. Projects for smaller, daintier braids that can emulate and replace herringbone chains as faster to make and a more smooth, more flexible, drape when wearing. Medallions that can hang from a braid or a spiral. Braids that update an ancient craft into jewelry that is new and unique.

The book starts with a few pages of tips and tricks every braider should know. Then step-by-step pictures teach new and exiting braid shapes and patterns. Whether you make them into jewelry or re-purpose them to something else, these are patterns that are not found in other books. Tested by braiders like you, this book shows how to integrate bead weaving and braidmaking. Both beginning and advanced braiders will enjoy the great projects with unlimited inspiration.
