We used The Beadsmith 1-step 2.25mm looper plier to make the simple loops for our beaded links. If you prefer, you can make simple loops with the help of chain and round nose pliers, instead. It is important to note that one 1-inch antique brass-plated 20 gauge eye pin is long enough to make two links.

Kumihimo with Beads

CodeABT-20131107-03

Once you have the basics down on how to create a Kumihimo braid you will more than likely want to try adding some beads to the braid. This involves a little more prep time before you get started but the results are well worth it. When planning your design, keep in mind that the finished results will differ depending on colors, size of beads and number of beaded strands. Also note that the size of stringing material will be determined by the hole size in the beads you want to use. Here we will show you how to create an 8 warp basic round Kumihimo braid using size 8/0 TOHO beads on all 8 strands.

First determine the length of braid you want. As a general rule cut three times the desired length of stringing material. This should accommodate most designs, even with beads.

Next you will need to determine how many beads are needed. We are using size 8/0 TOHO beads on all 8 strands. Refer to our chart on Kumihimo math.
