Learn the ancient Japanese braiding art of Kumihimo
Kindred spirit and fellow KC Bead Society member Michelle Wineland taught us this variation of a classic round braid and has graciously allowed us to teach her technique at Bead Blast. Learn the secret to the stringing sequence which creates a braid that appears flat.
