Crazy for Kumihimo

Since I have been working in the Beadwork and Jewelry Stringing office here at Interweave Press, there's one thing I've gotten really good at: picking up on trends. When we discover a new trend or a beading bandwagon everyone is jumping on, we do our best to make as many products as possible centered on that technique, theme, color, etc. available to our readers. For example, leather jewelry was all the rage not too long ago, so the editors of Jewelry Stringing worked our magic to put together a special issue of all leather projects, and voilà! Leather Jewelry was born.

The newest craze? Kumihimo. Since it was brought to our attention that you all are going bonkers for this technique, we've published many projects utilizing it, in order to fuel your fire! See some of my favorites, below, and go crazy for Kumihimo.
