Decoration is a passion that is both universal and historical. It can serve a functional purpose or be purely frivolous. Beads and braids are no exception. With such a choice of materials and styles within each technique there are endless possibilities. This book concentrates on the Japanese art of Kumihimo made on a Marudai. This round stand is an elegant and adaptable piece of equipment. It provides the braider with maximum control. Consequently beads can be added with more ease and versatility than with other methods. Forty different methods of combining beads and braids are explored, and the book is divided into four chapters:
1. Beads added after the braids have been completed.
2. Beads added to the threads before braiding begins.
3. Beads added during the braiding process.
4. Beaded ends and joins.
Each of these forty methods is illustrated with three different samples. Every sample can be reproduced by following the detailed instructions and diagrams. A gallery section in each chapter of the book is intended as inspiration and encouragement for personal exploration.
