|Ever want to place a beautiful lamp work bead onto your kumihimo design but could not because it would not fit over the braid? Perhaps you just can’t figure out how to use the smaller hole crystals or spacers. Well now you can learn the secrets to do so. This technique opens up a new door to making kumihimo jewelry!
Please call the store to sign up and receive supply list and pre-class bead stringing instructions ahead of time. Cost does not include supplies.Confidant beginner to intermediate experience.
The next project from the Beth Kemp book that we will be making is the Orange Sherbet Bracelet, page 36. I have the cord that is referenced in the book, available at 3 yards for $1.00. If you wish to use a different cord, you are of course free to bring that along.
We will use How to make 50 Fabulous Kumihimo Braids by Beth Kemp as a guide to studying Kumihimo on the square disk. ( ISBN:978-0-7641-6799-7) This book is available through Amazon for $14.95 using Prime. It is also available through several used book sellers through Amazon, usually in the $10-12 range including shipping. Since we will be using this book for probably the remainder of the year, or possibly longer, I would encourage each of you to get your own copy. I will NOT be printing out copies of the instructions, as I feel that the author has a right to be paid for her work.
If you don’t have Prime and would like me to order you a copy of the book, either new or used, please let me know. As usual, I will have cord and other materials available for purchase, but I suspect that there will come a time when you will want to secure your own materials. I will always have disks and bobbins for sale as well.
