Graduating bead sizes has never been easier. In Kumihimo pattern design, learning how to graduate bead sizes to achieve visually pleasing finished pieces of jewelry is one of the necessary skills taught by instructor Cindy Grayson. Learn how to use a center cord to support beads and prevent collapse. In this class, receive your very own first edition of the Bead Runway™ (patent pending), and use it as a tool to assist in the visual layout of graduating bead sizes. Begin to learn basic BeadRunway techniques that Grayson's previous students believe will revolutionize contemporary beaded kumihimo pattern design. Goal of this class is to use techniques learned to begin to create your own graduating bead patterns using your own beads. Learn "pattern coding" to easily apply and choose patterns by bead type/size.
