12  Kumhimo Braided Bracelets in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by lindyv321 on: July 02, 2014 12:42:58 PM
I have been wanting to try Kumihimo braiding for a very long time and bought a bunch of supplies about a year ago.  I kept putting it off though since it looks rather complicated.  I finally decided I was going to give it a try and watched some very helpful YouTube videos then gave it a go.  There are a ton of different braids to do but since I am a beginner I have only done the basic 8 strand.  This is my first 8 strand braid using beads.


The first one I made though was using satin cord.  If you are going to give this a try start with one of these.  It helps you to get the braiding down and you can really see what you are doing.

I have a book that details how to do sashiko and I would love to try it sometime....

Here is my first beaded Kumihimo braid.  I should have made it a bit longer but I was able to work it out so it still fits. 


I am going to do a few more of these then next I want to try a 12 strand spiral braid like this one from The Beautiful Life @BeadFX

I also need to purchase more size 6 seed beads and some of the large eye collapsible needles, or add them to my future Ongoing Wish lists!

Marty begged me to get him a puffy vest like the one his namesake wears in Back to the Future.... So I finally gave in and ordered him one.  It's a bit tight so more alterations are needed...

Great photo dump Smeddley!  Everything looks lovely. 

The wire wrapped goodies are gorgeous. 

I made my second Kumihimo braided bracelet using some cord I ordered. 



Next I am going to try doing a beaded one.

19  Re: Ongoing Wish Swap Gallery 103, 104 & 105 in The Swap Gallery by lindyv321 on: June 11, 2014 10:07:31 AM
I need feedback from something so I can hop in and claim for 105! 

Whoops, this is what happens when folks post in the gallery and don't PM the organizer... She sees the post and it goes right in one ear and out the other. Totally forgotten when she is going through PM's later to update the claims list. Sorry Lindy, I'll get you some feedback tonight.

I hadn't received my last claim as of yesterday so I was really just complaining that I was still full up rather than hinting... but thanks for the feedback and I just happened to receive my last claim from anna.wahnsinn yesterday....

She claimed me for jewelry and sent the most gorgeous necklace.  I am assuming this is some sort of bead weaving??  Anyway I love it!  Thank you so much
