Kumihimo braiding enables you to make your own cord for jewellery making.  Use this traditional Japanese method to make plain braided cords or incorporate beads to make stunning necklaces and bracelets.  The Kumihimo starter kit has everything you need to get going or buy the Kumihimo disks, threads, findings and accessories as required.

Kumihimo braiding looks fabulous when beaded and we would particularly recommend Czech seed beads 6/0, Czech pip beads and Miyuki long magatamas. View Preciosa project for kumihimo bracelet beaded with pip pressed glass beads.
