In ancient Japan, beautiful yet functional cords made with the traditional braiding art of kumihimo adorned everything from kimonos to samurai armor to prayer scrolls. In Kumihimo Wire Jewelry, innovative jewelry artist Giovanna Imperia offers a fresh twist on this time-honored technique, adapting it to create stunning wire jewelry.

This comprehensive book, which also includes pieces by prominent kumihimo jewelry artists from around the world, will inspire jewelry makers, beaders, and wireworkers at all skill levels to take their craft in a vibrant new direction.

J'ai été ravie d'avoir découvert cette technique via internet et ce livre est une merveille, les arts japonais ne cessent de me surprendre agréablement. Dommage de n'avoir que 2 bras, 2 mains et des jours de 24h.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Fabulous book! 17 mars 2011
Par whim - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché|Achat authentifié par Amazon
Kumihimo is the ancient Japanese art of braiding. I have done kumihimo before with various strings, ribbons and yarns and have come up with some great results. This book takes this art form to a whole other level using wire. Doing Kumihimo with wire is a bit trickier of course, but CAN be done. The instructions in the book are very clear and accompanied by tons of illustrations and photos. This book is appropriate for all skill levels. There are simple, basic designs great for the beginner and there are more complicated designs for the advanced braider. There are 20 designs in the book. 14 of them are made using the round disk and 7 of them are made using the square plate. Kumihimo is a great art form and does not require a lot of tools and supplies, making it an ideal "on the road" craft to take with you when you go on vacation. (almost everything you would need would fit nicely in a small box)

I bought this book because of the fabulous necklace on the cover. The rest of the projects in the book are beautiful as well, but the one on the cover is still my favorite.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Run, don't walk, to get this book!!! 16 mars 2011
Par R. J. Bednarek - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché|Achat authentifié par Amazon
I have been doing kumihimo for years, with fibers, and am also a jewelery maker who uses various media. I have read about and seen Giovanna's work online and always wanted to take one of her workshops. Well, this book, which arrived today although I ordered it last summer, was well worth the wait!!!! She is an incredible artist and this book is a must have reference for anyone wishing to work in kumihimo with wire. Her techniques are clearly illustrated in this book; the projects look fantastic, and this is the first time I have seen kumihimo taken to this artistic of a level. In most circles, this technique is practiced more as a craft; pretty but not out of the box. Giovanna gives solid instruction on the various braiding techniques possible with both the round and the square disk (that in itself is a rare treat!), plenty of good advice on wires and tools to use, and loads of inspiration on how to take this braiding to any level of creativity you desire. Wow! Her examples look completely professional in execution and finishing and she gives clear instructions on how to accomplish that yourself. This is the most exciting book on jewelery making I've seen in ages!!

2.0 étoiles sur 5 Inspiring but... 1 juillet 2012
Par Caddis Nymph - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché|Achat authentifié par Amazon
There is no argument about the inspiring nature of this book. But the instructions are full of errors. For example, in the set of three red silk and gold wire bracelets, two of the three braiding instructions are wrong, as is the estimate for how long to cut your materials for the three, which are all braided on one warp. Furthermore, the finishing instructions are very vague: although an instruction will tell you you need end caps, it neglects to tell you what size. The publisher has no errata sheet. The author's website offers corrections, but doesn't respond when contacted.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Terrific and Inspiring! 19 septembre 2011
Par Terri B. - Publié sur Amazon.com
Other reviewers have already written about the terrific projects, tools needed, and materials. I agree with them. The most appealing thing about this book to me was that the author made the disc correlate exactly to the maru dai. The maru dai is more appealing than the disc to me but for take along projects the disc is more convenient. The author's advice on using the disc made me take another look at the disc and become a happier occasional disc user. The advice on handling the wire plus the gorgeous projects gives first time wire braiders a jump start on the learning curve. The projects are also rated beginner to advanced which reduces frustration--you can choose a project with a difficulty level suited to your ability to try. The instructions for finishing the pieces are also excellent. A terrific start to finish book for beginners to advanced braiders.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Kumihimo... great artist's book 22 février 2012
Par Elizabeth Sperandio - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché|Achat authentifié par Amazon
What makes for a good "how to" art book is that it has clear instructions for how complete specific base projects. What makes a GREAT "how to" art book is that it does all of that, PLUS it introduces skills that help other creative artists form their own relationship with the materials. This book is a GREAT "how to" art book. Not only are Gioviana's instructions clear, but she guides you through a learning process that helps you to see how the materials work and enables you to create your own relationship with the process and materials. If you are advanced in your creative process, but new to kumihimo this is a great starter book. She works through basic weaves first, THEN introduces the same work in metal...which of course is a different beast.
If, however,you are looking to make simple projects that yield beautiful results quickly, you might be disappointed. This is a book from an artist who seems to be interested in introducing those inclined to beginning their journey with new materials and processes. She also has clearly defined projects to complete, but the interesting thing is that all of these projects build your skills and relationship to the work so that you may create your own work afterward. No dead ends here....all great learning.
