Braiding with Beads on the Kumihimo Disk- By Karen DeSousa
Most braiders never get past the basic round braid, and that's okay because there is soooo much you can do with it.
The book includes 12 different projects. Both necklaces and bracelets. It starts with designing your own project. Covers pattern arrangement with color and beads. The various textures, shapes and finishes that beads provide.
How to prep, braid and finish each project. From a retro's 50's look to an Out of this World lariat, this book is filled with braiding inspiration.
