Kumihimo Supplies, Kits & Inspiration

I have been searching the globe for quality products that every braider should have in their toolbox. Some of my favorites include:

  • Cord Zap – New from Beadsmith, extra strong for heavier cords. The hottest Thread Zapper on the market! Cuts and cauterizes synthetic cords and threads. Prevents frayed ends from unraveling. Takes 2 AA batteries (not included).


  • Magnetic Clasps – The shop now has over 60 clasps and I am adding new ones weekly. Something for everyone and some at very great prices, like the new bamboo clasps in both goldtone and silvertone for just $4.00 each. The new rhinestone tube clasps look like a crystal bead.


  • Chikamasa Scissors – These great scissors won the hearts of the folks at Bead & Button magazine. Not only did they all get a pair but they featured them in the April issue of the magazine. The handles are slightly larger, and wider, than most small scissors, making them very comfortable to use.These are by far the best scissors I have ever used and I’m offering them at a great price of $24.00.


New Items –  Be sure and check back often, I am always on the hunt for new great items.

    Do you carry the weights you use in the DVD? Will you be selling the weights at your Braids classes?

    Hi Jeanne, Yes, the counterweights I use on my DVD are in my shop under Kumihimo Supplies. Here is the link: http://kumihimoresource.com/store/kumihimo-supplies/slotted-counter-weights/
    If you would like me to bring some for you to Braids 2016, please just send me an email agaskell@me.com. I’m not sure I will be able to bring a lot of them to sell as my bags are getting very full. But I will be happy to bring some for students who request them in advance. BTW I am leaving Miami on Monday, so let me know asap. Adrienne
