    Jacqui Carey is the author of Beginner's Guide to Braiding and The Braider's Bible.
    The traditional Japanese craft of Kumihimo is clearly explained in this hands-on resource that is suitable for beginners but also offers enough complexity for seasoned braiders. Kumihimo braids are made of silk threads and were originally used as ties, cording, and belts for clothing and closures for Samurai warriors. Detailed step-by-step photographs present six projects to make a variety of braids, and tips on equipment and advice for developing the projects are included. By using a variety of patterns, colors, and textures, more than 70 other braids can be used to make a range of stunning necklaces, bracelets, cords, and other fashion accessories.

    • Title was misleading

      I expected to have examples of different kinds of bracelets, necklaces, etc but really just showed braiding.
