  1. Great video. Still, I don't like the idea of gluing metal to cloth. Sure, it works, but I think there's got to be something more elegant for braided jewelry. I should say that I'm researching techniques for all sorts of braids, not kumihimo. Off to watch videos of button knots…

  2. Yes we used 1mm size rattail. You can get the supplies featured in our videos on Beadaholique . com's website. The links for the supplies in this video are located in the video description underneath this video.

  3. Thanks for the video.  It's very clear and simple.  I can't figure out what the stick you said you used to applying the glue.  Toothpicks don't really work well for me.  The tool you used looks perfect for me.  Please tell me what it is and where I can pick one up.  Thanks

  4. Thank you for sharing! It seems like the glue would attach the tape or the tie off threads to the end cap What keeps the braid from just pulling out since only the tiny fraying ends are actually glued into the tip of the endcap?

  5. Great tutorial! What are those plastic spools that you are using? I'd like to get some but I don't know what to even search for. Thanks!
