Beaded Kumihimo Jewelry is a collection of projects made using the most common kumihimo braid: kongoh gumi. The book includes 20+ all-new projects using this popular technique all in a friendly, easy-to-follow format made using an inexpensive kumihimo disk incorporating all your favorite beads. As you go through her third book, Rebecca will show you how to use many different types of beads in a variety of sizes to make kumihimo jewelry effectively. One beneficial section of this book is Rebecca's "trouble shooting" section, used to help explain some of the most problematic areas of a kumihimo braid making each project more manageable for beginners. There is also a helpful Kumihimo Math section used to calculate the proper length and materials of the braid. Along with a few more detailed instructions for the foam disk, and a discussion about using the marudai. Beaded Kumihimo Jewelry is a great addition to your beading library not only for the beautiful designs, but the detailed discussions of both kumihimo math and trouble shooting.
