If you have not created a Kumihimo broad before you will also need:
Kumihimo Braiding Disk
No Tangle Bobbins
Cut 8 strands of S-Lon approximately 70cm, tie all the cords together in the centre of the cord. Thread on the Zamak Crystal Tube.
Place the knot/tube bead through the centre of the Kumihimo board and set up the board using an 8 strand braid. If you haven’t created an 8 strand braid before please click here to view our tutorial.
Thread 8 beads of your choice on each of your 8 strands, and then start braiding. Once finished, tie a knot at the end of your braid. Repeat this for the other side of your braid.
Now thread the sterling silver cone onto the end of each braid. You will only need to thread 4 strands of the cord through the cone, cut the excess strands and hide the knot inside the cone. Add on 3 6mm Seamless round beads from the findings kit.
Cut the ends of your cord to your required length and tie a knot at either end of the S-Lon cord. Glue the knots into the end of your magnetic clasp.

"Just used my new kumihimo handle and weighted bobbins and they are great. My kumihimo has never been so neat and the thread/ weave so tight. It's great."
