Twist, Turn & Tie 50 Japanese Kumihimo Braids: A Beginner's Guide to Making Braids for Beautiful Cord Jewelry

Author: Beth Kemp

The traditional Japanese art of cord braiding--known as kumihimo-- has been around for centuries. The technique, which uses a loom and several strands of silk thread, was once used to create the strong, slender cords that reinforced samurai warrior armor. Today, it is primarily used to make beautiful, color-drenched cords for jewelry and other decorative items. In Twist, Turn, & Tie 50 Japanese Kumihimo Braids, readers will get everything they need to get started in this ancient craft, including a mini braiding loom!
They'll also find:
  • An overview of tools and materials from looms to bobbins to glues to beads
  • Step-by-step instructions for basic loom braiding, handling threads, beads, and more
  • 50 gorgeous projects from simple beginner braids to complex beaded cords
  • 400 full-color photographs for inspirations and instruction
With details on kumihimo terminology, starting and finishing braids, and calculating thread and bead counts, this book is an ideal guide for new braiders.
