If you've never heard of "Kumihimo" before, it's an ancient braiding technique that's super-easy to learn and has a "ba-zillion" more advanced variations, for the ultimate in versatility and styles!
Shown in the VIDEO below is a basic "how-to" for Kumihimo. Take a quick look and you'll see for yourself that I'm not kidding when I say "super-easy"!
At Suzie Q's, we love doing the "KOO-ME-HEE-MO" in leather with accents of large-holed focal beads and sliders, for a style that can be casual or dressy, and it's even a great look for the GUYS in your life!
When you mastered the Kumihimo basics, step it up a notch, or two, by adding a variety of BEADS! To get an idea of how to do this, check out the VIDEO below:
Calgary jewelry designer, Jamie North is a bonafide "Kumihimo Queen"! Take a look at the Kumihimo variations that she's created!:..
For this gorgeous Kumihimo "lariat-style" necklace, Jamie used a variety of Japanese seed beads, along with some beautiful Swarovski focal beads, suspended from a toggle closure, which is used as a design element at the front of the necklace.
Aren't these stunning pieces? This time around, Jamie changes it up by using fine wire to form the braided base, and once again, uses her all-time favourite Swarovski crystals, plus optional "dagger" beads, to create these show-stopper, one-of-a-kind necklaces.
Lotsa Leather to choose from for Kumihimo and all kinds of other projects!
Other uses for Beads and Leather? How about creating a multi-wrap "Chan-Luu-Style" Ladder Bracelet?
