Lovely Jamie North has made these stunning bracelets with a definite Wow Factor, using my tutorial and some of her fabulous clasps. Using wire to make kumihimo braids opens up a whole new world of design possiblilites. Wire works in a completely different way to cord and yarn and some familiar braids can look unrecognizeable made with wire. A certain amount of manipulation of the braid is possible after it has been removed from the disk to make it more even and the whole braid can be bent and curved into a permanent shape. However, too much manipulation will snap the wire, so take care!
