Kumihimo Wirework Made Easy: Framed Leather Bracelet
When designing projects for her book Kumihimo Wirework Made Easy, author Chrisina Larsen was inspired to create a bracelet that elegantly incorporated leather and wire together.
The resulting Framed Leather Bracelet is a stunning design that utilizes the two materials together flawlessly. Two bands of cross kumihimo braid structures frame an internal band made by braiding wire and leather together. This creates a beautiful intricate-looking bracelet that is easier to make than it looks.
