Retired - Spiraling Beaded Kumihimo Bracelet

PROJECT B634
Designer: Julie Bean
Skill Level: Intermediate
This modern bracelet has a fetching swirl design which is accented by a unique swirl clasp. The technique used to make it is Beaded Kumihimo which is fantastic way to create intricate bead patterns and braids.
Instructions
Note: You will need to create some type of weight to use for this project. In the video, you will see I just used a binder clip and a dapping tool.
  1. This entire project is demonstrated in the video, How to Braid Beaded Kumihimo and Make a Bracelet.
  2. Following what you learned in the video, make the bracelet.
  3. Tip: If you are new to Kumihimo, you might want to try non-beaded Kumihimo first, although the beaded Kumihimo is not much more difficult, it can be easier to learn a new technique with fewer steps involved. Here is the video on How to Make a Simple 8-Warp Kumihimo Braid Bracelet.
