Cynthia's Signature

  • Supplies

It's fun incorporating different beads into kumihimo braids. Cynthia added three different kinds of beads in this bracelet: seed beads, fire-polished beads and gemstone chips. The result is a look full of texture and soothing color. See more ways to play with kumihimo in your jewelry-making projects in this Artbeads Cafe episode.
