PIP beads are simply perfect for kumihimo. I fell in love with these small petal shaped beads while working on these bracelets. The project evolved from a simple tutorial for the PIP All Around Bracelet to four designs altogether and a necklace design. I hope you will love them as much as I do! > Post with More Info and Larger Photos

 

26 Page Manual - 4 Design Variations, 4 Different Bead Placements
Bracelet Kits available in 8 Color Choices and Necklace Kits available in 3 Color Choices

No previous kumihimo experience is required for this project.

The Kumihimo PIP Bead Bracelets Kit comes with a 26 page copyrighted manual with 56 pictures and charts. The PDF manual has clear and easy to follow directions. How to set up the cords on the K-Disk, how to load the beads, how to braid with just the cords and with beads, how to remove your project from the K-Disk, how to prepare the ends for the clasp, and how to finish the project. It has notes on best practices, braiding mantras, and tips throughout, a what if? section, plus standard bracelet lengths, and how to care for the pieces. The tutorial is focused on the PIP Flower Design, which has a complex bead placement, but it is easy to follow as the process is broken down into a series of simple logical steps to help achieve great results on the first try.

PIP Flower Design - Flowers made with PIPs at regular intervals, with 8/0s in the background.

Duo PIP Flower Design - A version of the PIP Flower Design especially suited for dual finished PIP beads and a 4mm bead added at the center of the flower. > Dual Sided PIP Bead Kits for the Duo PIP Flower Design

PIPs All Around Design - Sculptural, geometrical, dimensional, the easiest design with PIPs interspersed with 8/0s.

Half Round PIP Design - Similar to the PIPs All Around, but with all 8s on the back side for comfort and a lower profile. Best for necklace design.

Necklace Design - This is a lovely project. The instrusctions are included in the 26 page manual. great project to do after making the bracelet. Available in 3 colors at this time.

Fray Check
Bead Embroidery Needles

Perfect for self needles - superior to super glue or nail polish. It does not leave much of a residue on the fingers when smoothing along the thread, and the residue can be washed or rubbed away easily. The alcohol evaporates and the product dries on the thread. When opening the bottle for the first time, poke a hole in the tip with a fine pin. Allow 5-10 minutes to dry.

$4.30 each #ADH-FCK
0.75oz./22.5 ml. Made in the U.S.


Poly Zap Super Glue
Bead Embroidery Needles

For Nylon Cords - Great for the ends of braids as it penetrates to glue in the core. Use it sparingly, a little goes a long way. It also works well to glue the end clasps. It dries quickly as most super glues. Always wipe the top of the bottle before replacing the cap, store it upright and pierce the top with a thin needle when the flow is restricted. This product has a limited shelf-life of about a year.

$8.75 each
0.75oz./22.5 ml.

Wooden Handle Awl
Beading Awl for Crochet
7" long with a point profile perfect for breaking seed beads off the cord without damaging the cord. Made in Pakistan.

Use a wood block, insert point right into the seed bead that needs to be broken. This tool is very useful for kumihimo and for tubular bead crochet ropes.

$3.95 each
