Treasure Nets Tutorial


A tutorial with step-by-step instructions and photographs showing how to make a Kumihimo Necklace using Round Braid and the ‘inside-out’ method of adding beads.


This tutorial is intermediate level. Very detailed instructions and photographs are included, but the best results will be achieved with some prior experience of beaded kumihimo.  An alternative method of braiding the beads is introduced, which positions the beads on the inside of the braid, rather than on the outside. The braid structure is Round Braid. Very limited materials are required, so once the method of braiding has been mastered the necklace is quick and cheap to make. The design is easy to adapt to make bracelets and lariats.
