Kumihimo Episode 6: 8 Warp Kumihimo with Beads
Item Id: VIDEO-0136 review 1 Review(s) Write a Review Write a Review


My friend Dena made a beaded Kumihimo bracelet for me for my birthday, and I wear it often. I could hardly wait to learn to Kumihimo with beads, but I had to start with the basics first. I didn't get it on my first try, or even my second. It isn't hard but it does take a bit of finesse. Once it clicks for you, you'll be making beaded Kumihimo bracelets in no time. We will be working with the round disc and 8/0 seed beads. We will also learn a new technique on the ending using bead cones. All the techniques you learn just open up the design ideas to your next creation!

Tips and Tricks
  • A new Kumihimo disc is recommended if you are new to using S-Lon Threads, so that you have a good snug fit.
  • Learn how to end the bracelet with bead cones using an eye pin or head pin.

Excellent! Very clear explanations with good demonstration of both set up and techniques. I had been wanting to learn Kumihimo, but hadn't taken the time. Your short episodes let me learn and practice at my pace. Now I feel ready to begin flat kumihimo with beads. Thank you!!

Questions and Answers
Q: will 8 grams of 8/0 seed beads be enough to make this bracelet?
Asked by: - 7/10/2014 (Submit an answer)
A: You need to figure in an 8/0 seed bead that is 8 beads per inch. If your bracelet is 7" than that is (8x7)x4= 220beads There are approximately 390 beads per 10grams of seed beads. I generaly err on the side of caution and add more seed beads. I have used about 11 to 12 grams of beads, give or take. It is better to have too many beads than not enough!
