Kumihimo Wirework Made Easy: Snaky Bracelet

Versatility was on Christina Larsen’s mind when she was designing the Snaky Bracelet for her book Kumihimo Wirework Made Easy.

This lovely wire kumihimo bracelet has beads incorporated into the braid in an unusual way, creating its namesake snakeskin appearance. Make this versatile design truly your own by choosing your preferred color of wire while playing with bead color and size. Whether you want a bolder look, or a more elegant design, the Snaky Bracelet offers many possibilities.
