Learn Beaded Kumihimo: Where to Start

5125_Beaded-Kumihimo-Cover-Proje_gif-550x0Some of my favorite Japanese imports include things like sushi (yum), seed beads (yummier), and Zen Buddhism. In the last couple of years, I also added the ancient Japanese art of kumihimo to that list! This traditional technique of crafting braids from fibers and leather has become a popular technique in the last few years among beaders and those who love to do bead crochet and fiber art. Once I took my first class in beaded kumihimo, I started learning all I could about this technique and how I could use it in my beaded jewelry designs.
