*Karen's Kumihimo Corkscrew Bracelet
Springy, bouncy and lots of fun, Karen’s Kumihimo Corkscrew Bracelet is quick, fun and easy to make. The possibilities are endless. You will learn a quick tip for measuring circumference, how to start with an “interlaced” end and braid around a core. This bracelet is approximately 4 “wraps”. There is also some flexibility as the bracelet is stretchy in nature. This kit starts you out with a basic spiral pattern but you can change the patterns and try your own colors once you learn the techniques for making the bracelet.
This was one of our Kumihimo projects that we did in San Miguel de Allende and I thank my students for making me such great samples!
