Embellished Hira-Se Necklace Class


In this class students will learn two essential flat braids: Yatsu-se (8-strand) and Hira-se (12-strand). The reason for learning Yatsu-se is to reinforce the hand movements used in Hira-se which is a compound braid based on Yatsu-se with Hira-genji, the additional 4 warps that create the chevrons in the center of the braid. Each of these braid make beautiful necklaces. However, the project for this class focuses on one of Adrienne’s exclusive techniques of incorporating beads along in the center while braiding.
