Beading Study Group, November 2018

Monday, November 19, 2018 Beading Study Group

Anne DeStefano provided an introduction to kumihimo braiding. We learned how to figure out the length of cord needed, how to arrange the cord in the disk to start, and the three simple movements for each step to build the braid. The initial placement of colors around the disk will determine the pattern that results.

At our September 11th Bead Study meeting we answered a challenge to make a creative necklace without buying any new beads. Carolyn Granados and Karen Crete provided disc-shaped stone pendants as a starting point, and leather and yarn cording. We all brought extra beads we had around the house to share, and we ended up with some wonderful creations.
