Promis, quand vous aurez le coup de main, ça ira vite, et vous ne serez pas déçues ! Il vous faut donc des scoubidous, du scotch, et une grosse perle (ou tout autre moyen de fermer un bracelet !) Tu vas avoir besoin de trois scoubidous : -Un qui sera la base, il ne se verra pas dans le bracelet (pour moi c'est le noir) -Deux autre, de la couleur de ton choix !

-> Tu plies en deux ton scoubidou de base (le noir), en laissant une petite boucle, comme sur la photo du haut. -> Tu accroches les deux autres scoubidous (sans les plier en deux !) -> . . - Tu sers bien.. ->.. Learn Beading · Princess Wire-wrapped Ring. This ring is just too pretty to be so fast and easy! It’s an irresistible project you’re sure to love. Let’s get started! You’ll only need a few tools, so don’t worry about lengthy cleanup with this one (a nice bonus!). Grab a crystal clear or colored Swarovski crystal, a ring mandrel, wire cutters and some 24 gauge wire. I chose a Swarovski crystal that was drilled at the top for added dimension and height. Cut a good length of wire (perhaps 12 to 20 inches, depending on how big your finger is; you can always snip the excess) and string your crystal. On the mandrel, center your bead. Pull the formed wire off the mandrel and bring one end of the wire around the base of the bead (to secure it), then bring that piece of wire back around until it’s pointing outward.

Repeat this process with the other end of the wire on the other side of the bead. Begin wrapping the tail of the wire snugly around the area outside the bead. Kumihimo 1.

I love the simplicity of the design of my latest kumihimo braided bracelet using size 8 Japanese seed beads.

The spiral pattern is pleasing to the eye and the materials cost is low! To make the spiral pattern, choose two contrasting colors of size 8 seed beads. You can use either Japanese or Czech seed beads. My design utilizes matte black Miyuki (stock no. MI-8-401F) and lovely matte gold Toho's (stock no. Each strand of cord will be strung with 50 beads, four strands of black, and four strands of gold, so it will take 200 beads of each of the two colors to make a bracelet length.

You will need a Mini Kumihimo braiding disc, eight bobbins, and a button to make the closure. I start by cutting two 2-yard pieces of black S-Lon cord, and two 2-yard pieces of light khaki. Then I place the button top-side down into the center of my Mini Kumihimo disc. Once the cords are secured into the slots with my button face down in the center, I flip the disc over and begin stringing on beads.

Go to original (Java) version of Kongoh-gumi (Friendship Bracelets) DMC code: About the braid Kongoh gumi braids are probably the first kumihimo braid people come across.

This braid gives a rectangular area for design which repeats spiralling up the braid (the S-spiral goes round the opposite direction). On a kumihimo disk, the movement sequence is very simple (2 thread moves and a turn of the disk repeated) and the flexibility of the design makes it popular for friendship bracelets. We have more information about this braid on our Kongoh Gumi page. How to use the designer Use the colour picker to choose your thread colour.

Kumihimo tutorial: flat braid with hearts. I got the pattern for this braid from a friend of mine, who found it here: . It makes a flat braid, with a heart pattern running up the center. I am using 10/2 Uki red cotton weaving yarn for the background of this braid. The hearts are in an unlabeled cream colored cotton from my stash, that is about twice the thickness of the red. The finished width is about 1/8", which makes for a cute little delicate braid. I'm picturing using this as friendship bracelets, as necklace cording, as drawstrings, or as trim on a little bag. Here's the finished braid: And here's the process on my foam disk. Here's the starting position. We'll start with the threads at the top of the disk. Take the right hand, inner thread on the top. Take the left hand, inner thread in the top position. Take the two remaining threads in the 12:00 position, and move them closer together. That is the end of the first sequence.

That is the end of the second sequence. Flower Kumihimo Pattern. Friendship Bracelets. Bracelet Patterns. How to make bracelets.
