Free Kumihimo Seed Bead Patterns (10/22/2014)

2014 October 22

I recently tried Kumihimo braiding with beads and I really like it. I have some great inspiration today, along with some tips Kumihimo and information on getting started. I think I’m going to have to try the one with the spikes. Isn’t it cool?

To showcase the range we have combined them with two other timeless favorites; the Kumihimo braid and 4mm Swarovski Bicones. We think they look spike-tastic as a woven bracelet and would look ‘rock n roll’ cool as a necklace too.

Bead Crochet Vs. Kumihimo Thu, 26 Jun 2014 07:49:00 -0700

This is one of the differences between bead crochet and Kumihimo. The patterns can be different. Another difference is that Kumihimo does not stretch; however, bead crochet does stretch because it has slip stitch knotting in the middle (if you doing slip stitch bead crochet, that is. There are several ways to do bead crochet). This is the way that those lucky enough to own a bead crochet bracelet roll it over their hand to have it snap back to exactly their wrist measurement.

Beaded kumihimo makes a wonderfully portable craft, once you’ve loaded your beads onto the threads placed on your kumihimo disk. Using a small, lightweight foam kumihimo disk means that you can take your kumihimo projects along with you wherever you go.

These “Painting with Beads” necklaces have more variation in beaded patterns and I am using 8/0 seed beads instead of 6/0 seed beads. For those of you that need a reminder, 8/0 seed beads are smaller than the 6/0 seed beads and this makes for a smaller diameter beaded rope and the beaded patterns appear more detailed.

As more and more braiders are using beads in their Kumihimo, there are more and more questions about how to braid a beaded braid that has the right feel and consistency.Your beaded braid should be even and consistent and the hand should feel supple and solid.
