Ladder Braid Kumihimo Bracelet

Ladder Braid Kumihimo Bracelet

This tutorial is intermediate level. Very detailed instructions and photographs are included, but the best results will be achieved with some prior experience of basic kumihimo. A variation on the Ladder Braid is introduced, which allows the beads to be braided into the bracelet as part of the braiding process. Very limited materials are required, so once the new braid has been mastered the bracelet is quick to make up and is not costly.
