This braided bracelet pattern puts a twist on traditional Kumihimo bracelets – literally! For an easy, sophisticated jewelry piece, try making this Gorgeous Chain DIY Kumihimo Bracelet. This Kumihimo design may look complex, but it’s actually quite easy and doesn’t require any beads. The unexpected mixture of chain and leather makes this bracelet stand out. Kumihimo may be an ancient technique, but combined with a more modern material, this jewelry piece is chic and not at all old-fashioned. It would also make a lovely homemade gift for a friend.

This is just easy. There is nothing to making it. I don't have leather but I have thick rug yarn and thick satin cord so I am going to give it a shot. Nothing ventured, no jewelry gained! It's so simple, inexpensive and yet pretty. There has to be a catch somewhere. But after reading thru the directions I didn't find any!
