Kumihimo

You can create some beautiful jewelry using this braid making technique. I wanted to start with something smaller so I make a bracelet following this video tutorial. Just make sure that you use some beads with a uniform shape, mine were not and it shows a little.

I made my own kumihimo board, out of a piece of cardboard. This is how it turned out.

It takes a bit of practice until the strand moves come natural, but once you get the hang of it, it’s quite fun.

I would like to make a necklace too, maybe using some Toho beads.

All the bets,

Roxi
