Free Project Idea - Kumihimo With Soft Flex Beading Wire

10:30 AM



I used my 10ft spools of beading wire as the bobbins, making the set up for this project very quick and easy.  Also, when you buy 8 spools, you automatically get a 20% discount off of the retail price! Less work and less cost. 

After you create the cord on the Kumihimo board. Use all eight wires to string two crimp tubes. Pass the eight wires back through the crimps in the opposite direction to create a circle. Crimp the two tubes side-by-side with a small space between them. Cover the crimps in crimp covers. Attach the ear wire between the two crimp covers.

If you have never used a Kumihimo board before, I suggest the brand new book shown above. It offers 24 projects to try.
