Kumihimo Episode 6: 8 Warp Kumihimo with Beads
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!!Reviewed by: Mary from Keller, Texas. on 7/20/2014
