Kumihimo Braiding

I have been really into Kumihimo braiding lately.  Kumihimo is Japanese multi-string braid making.  I have been doing mostly 16 strand braids and experimenting with different patterns in cotton thread.  To make the closure I had the idea to make a loop at the beginning of the braid and then I made a bunch of silver buttons to fasten the bracelet together.  These are the first two completed.  I am rather happy with how they turned out.  I will have to make many more!


  1. Thanks! I am happy with how the buttons worked out.

  2. Cute closures. Gives your braids a unique look.
