Kumihimo Wirework Made Easy: Corset Bracelet

The Corset Bracelet from Christina Larsen’s book Kumihimo Wirework Made Easy is a great example of how well wire can play with leather in kumihimo braiding.

Two wire bands of diagonal braid structure are softened in appearance with the addition of leather cording laced between them and around the outer edges. Make the Corset Bracelet your own by using a bold colored leather, or create a more subdued accessory with a more neutral palette.
