I today’s video I show you how to use a Kumihimo Braiding Disk to make unique cords for your beads and jewelry. As I mention in the video, if you get the disk you should also get the Large Kumihimo Bobbins.
(This link will bring you to a page with many photo examples of what kumihimo braiding looks like.)
Kumihimo is a great bring-it-along-with-you kind of project, perfect for doing in the doctor’s office or while watching something you don’t need to pay strict attention to. It’s quite simple and nearly mindless.
Also, you are not only limited to making round cord. You can make flat braids, hollow braids and use up to 32 cords in your braids. Just do an internet search and you’ll see lots of possibilities!
Next week I’ll show you my favorite thing to do with Kumihimo, and that’s adding beads. It’s a bit more work, but well worth the effort!
In the meantime, enjoy the video and happy creating.
