Description:

This book provides you with detailed instructions and the accompanying images on how to create a BEADED SPIRAL KUMIHIMO CELLPHONE STRAP. This design is unique to each individual, the possible materials, color combinations, wires, and beads to add to the design are numerous.
The steps that are shown will take you through how to create your own HANDMADE KUMIHIMO LOOM, and provide a few SPIRAL BRAID PATTERNS. The round braid patterns that have been included along with the Kumihimo Loom can both be used to create the additional design pattern.

Each of the designs, techniques and projects included in this book can be individualized by the reader. The materials and tools used to create each can be adapted and a truly unique and creative item can be created. The braids created are round braids formed on a basic round loom.

The materials used in this tutorial are specific to the projects created at the time. You may need to adjust the amounts to your own creations slightly.




UPDATED EDTION: April 2013
Featured in the new edition is the creation of a HANDMADE SQUARE KUMIHIMO DISK LOOM, a new braid pattern the TWO SIDED FLAT KUMIHIMO BRAID, and finally a PROJECT GALLERY displaying several examples of jewelry created by VAI Designs. I hope the new editions help to inspire your own jewelry creations. An additional flat braid is included and can be created with the square loom.
