Feel like you're in the tropics even when you're not! Coiling Coral Clusters has amazing texture and looks a bit intimidating to wear but it is very comfy. This tutorial will show you how to work with beads that have very tiny holes and how to incorporate them with beads that fit on the commonly used 0.5mm braiding cord.

DISCLAIMER: This is not a fast braid and not for beginners!

The bracelet and necklace pictured in the listing are examples of items made using the tutorial and are not part of the listing. The tutorial is for the kumihimo braiding technique and pattern, NOT the netted bezel and peyote bail pendant.

The tutorial package is five files that include everything from DIY Kumihimo Weight instructions to three different ending techniques!

1. Read Me First - This file will give you a Brief History of Kumihimo and some Important Terminology to know. The most important part of this file is the DIY Kumihimo Weight section.

2. Kongo Gumi – Fiber Only and Beaded
If you are new to Kumihimo this would be the second file to look at. This will cover the basics from Kongo Gumi with Satin Cord to Beaded Kongo Gumi.

3. Kumihimo Endings – Glue On and Attach a Cone
This file contains two similar ending techniques. These techniques start with an unbeaded section of braid. The specific supplies and tools are listed for each technique.

4. Special Start Kumihimo Ending – Bury a Wire Loop
This ending has special starting instructions and if selected can not be changed to another ending once started.

5. Tutorial Specific Supplies and Loading Chart.
This file gives you the specific supplies for the pictured pattern and the order in which to load beads on each element. If you are familiar with beaded Kumihimo and have your own ending technique you prefer you can skip to this file.
