Isn’t it great what you can whip up with a few beads & a loom?
This was the result of a class I’m teaching at the college all about Holiday Gift Giving Ideas~this is a super fast, but elegant project that any one would be pleased to receive!
This one uses regular beading wire in black, on which beads are randomly threaded, then knitted into every loop of a 2 peg I-cord, a few at a time.
How easy is that?!
The bracelet is finished as you would a regular jewelry project…with beading crimps, and, in this case, a pretty toggle clasp.
I dangled an old fashioned silver key charm, just for good measure. 🙂
My favorite thing about beading with a knitting loom is how the beads are delicately encased by the swirly black wire…lovely!
the AMAZING closeups brought to you ala my new camera! YES!!! 😀
Is there a pattern on-line for this bracelet that you could post the link to? Yours are just beautiful! I love your fingerless gloves and mittens too. It wouldn’t be Christmas without some homemade gifts. To me that’s what Christmas is all about. I took a small swatch of fleece and sewed my hubby a guiter pick case. :o)
Thanks…I’m looking for something easy and quick to make.
I’m so glad you like the projects! 🙂 It makes me smile when I can make YOU smile!
As to the link on the bracelet…the above is my own design, but if you go to Isela’s homepage(http://isela.typepad.com/looming_crafts/), and look on the right sidebar, you will find a link to a pattern for a beaded bracelet called the Arellis Bracelet. This is a great place to start.
I think I’ll work up a freebie pattern for the type of bracelet, etc. above soon…maybe for Valentine’s Day?…:)
Thanks Bethany for all your help and info. :o)
