Kumihimo bracelet


My first attempt at Kumihimo braiding -- or as Aryd'ell calls it when it includes beads, Kumibeado.

This is what all the strands of beads from the last post turned in to.  Albeit I still haven't found end caps or cones to finish it off.  But here it is with all my goofs -- it was such fun to do even if I felt like I had 20 thumbs and 40 fingers.

I find it difficult to do beadwork like this... Good luck with finishing it!

Cool, I want a green one!

This one IS green -- now tell me you didn't know that, Steph LOL. Guess when I get the end caps it will have to wing it's way to San Diego :-)

i love this bracelet, what attracted me was that it doesnt have the chunky end cap. Couldnt you just put a clam end on it?

Hi, I've just started kumihimo tecnique and I find it great. Is it difficult to work with beads?
