|Garnie Bethea's satin and silver|
I've learned many great tips from her, such as how to start a kumi necklace from the center. Visit her site to sign up for the e-newsletter--or at least check out the kumihimo tips in the right-hand side of her home page--where you'll learn how to finish ends, calculate the number of beads you'll need to make a necklace--all kinds of useful tidbits.
The December e-newsletter featured a lovely bead and fiber necklace by Garnie Bethea. Go here for the simple instructions and to see Karen's rendition of the necklace. (Although this particular version looks very Christmasy, it would look fantastic in other color combos, too.)
And for design inspiration, please check out Karen's slideshow gallery of the work of the very talented students who take her classes.
