If you haven't learned the art of Kumihimo / Japanese braiding, you're missing out on a wonderful way to create necklaces, bracelets, belts, harnesses and so much more! It's an age old art that has been around in Europe for hundreds of years and more recently, the jewelry world has brought it to the forefront by adding it to just about every aspect of jewelry design possible. This square disk, with it's instructions in English, is made of 3/8" dense foam and measures 6 inches in diameter. It will teach you how to form the basic round Japanese braid and has diagrams to show you placement of cords for distinct designs. Your choices of cording can range from tiny threads to thick leather and everywhere in between! Give it a try...you'll be hooked like the rest of us! The skies the limit once you understand the technique!
This disk is awesome. I couldn't wait till I could play with it.
