Bead Loom bracelet


About this design:

I have made this bead bracelet the traditional way, on a bead loom. It takes a while, but it's worth it! I added a turquoise rondelle with a small silver nugget to close as a clasp.

Components:

Seed beads, turquoise and silver

    Beautiful Michelle! I love the colors and pattern you chose. I’ve never used a loom, but I have made bracelets similar with peyote stitch.

    I like what you did and I’m loving the colors, stitching is not my cup of tea, how hard it is with the loom?

    Thank you all ! The loom is easy to use. You just go back and forth through the beads around the threads that you attach to it. You can do as many rows as you like.
    Wanda, please can you tell me what peyote stitch is? Thanks !

    I loved how you finished your piece, what a great way to use up your finish strings. I too enjoy looming.
