One challenge of braiding or beading with crystals is that they have sharp edges that can cut thread and cord.  That's why for Shine On we're braiding on Soft Touch wire by Soft Flex Company.  It's seven strands of micro woven stainless steel wire:  strong enough to resist cutting by the crystals, but supple enough to braid.   The wire's springback gives just a little space between each crystal, giving them space to catch the light and protecting them from rubbing together.

When finished your Shine On braid is a sparkling delight that you can wear as a long necklace or wind around your wrist as a multi-wrap bracelet.

These kits are suitable for braiders of all levels, but if you're a beginner please consult the Beaded Kumihimo Starter Guide and Understanding the Braid before you begin your project. These are both free PDFs on our website. You can also watch our Beaded Kumihimo Quick Start Guide on our YouTube channel.
