Experiment with texture and colour to create gilded, beaded braids. Unlike shop-bought versions, yours can be custom designed to perfectly match your own unique craft projects.
The main directory is a sumptuous collection of designs, organized according to structure, from twisted and knotted braids to more elaborate looped and woven pieces.
Each braid features a close-up photograph, a recipe of materials and step-by-step instructions. All core techniques are clearly demonstrated with easy-to-follow photographs, and little or no equipment is needed.
