7 cord braiding
  Braiding with beads

This workshop will teach how to braid using 7 cords instead of the 8 cords used in the basic round Kongo Gumi. The 7 cord structure is called Fill the Gap. It is much easier to learn than Kumihimo, but has the same overall look to the finished braid. The Class assignment will be a key fob or zipper pull. Materials will be 1) Large Lobster Claw clasp, 2) size 8/0 seed beads, 3) various other beads (leaves, drops, flowers, pips), 4) cLon beading cord. and 5) Kumihimo Braiding Disk. The basic instructions will teach how to braid with various type of beads, that are commonly used in making jewelry. Doing the shorter key fob gives the skills needed for making bracelets or necklaces, in less time. You WILL complete this project in class.


Prerequisites/Skills Needed: None

Materials you are required to bring: Students will not need bring anything. They can bring a beading mat, but I will have some people can use.
