Step by Step instructions;

  • 1. Creating your plaited loop; cut four equal length threads. Gather all four threads, mark the centre point using a spare piece of thread and temporarily secure with a single knot.
  • 2. Plait approx. 1 ½ inch down from your centre point, bend this over into a loop, by wrapping it around a pencil. You now have all eight threads that you need for your Kumihimo disk.
  • 3. Push your eight threads through to the back of the disc leaving your pencil as a weight and anchor holding the plaited loop on the back of the disk.
  • 4. Follow your Kumihimo Disk instructions.
  • 5. To tie off your braid; remove all threads from the disk and secure the ends with a spare bit of thread. Take a piece of your waxed cotton and wrap the end, secure the two ends of the wrap with a small blob of jewellery glue. Knot the eight threads together to create one big knot (this will act as a clasp with the loop to secure the bracelet). Add beads for decoration and knot to secure.
  • 6. Stamp your blanks. Use masking tape to secure your blank to the bench block. Use the tape as a guide to align your letters. Add optional gilding wax or liquid. Add a jump ring with the backs of your blanks against each other and attach to your braid.
