I have been experimenting with using different beads in kumihimo, and after a failed attempt to make size 8/0 Delicas into a kumihimo rope (the cylinidrical beads just wouldn't braid together niceley!) I realized that I have made a lot of different kumihimo variations. Here are some of them:
Kumihimo variations - different bead and fiber types
I like seeing them side-by-side like that, but here is a little better detail:
Kumihimo variations: 3-cut 6/0, 8/0 (3-color and 2-color), 11/0 triangles, Long Magatamas
Kumihimo variations: Long Magatamas, 4x7 lentils, gemstone chips, various yarns
Do you have a favorite technique that you find yourself turning to time and again?
