Overview

Wagashi: Handcrafted Fashion Art from Japan by Kumiko Sudo


Patterns for 20 handcrafted projects, each an exquisite accessory and a tiny work of art, are provided in this step-by-step guide. The centerpiece of the handbook is a range of stunning fabric jewelry—necklaces, bracelets, and earrings—crafted from silks or cottons complemented by a colorful decorative cord that is woven or knotted into unique designs, called kumihimo. Instructions are provided for several unusual craft techniques including Japanese knotwork, Delica beading, and fabric origami, each with color drawings and step-by-step directions. Projects are accompanied by color photographs evocative of contemporary Japanese style, and every chapter opens with a wonderful original watercolor by the author, as well as text providing reflections on Japanese life and art.
