About this design:

A loom bracelet. I don't often make these, but was inspired to recently with these lovely fire polished beads! I like making them, I just don't like finishing them off! I also used small pearls and seed beads.

    Wow so pretty. I really like your bead color choices. I agree with the navajo bling description.

    is it easy to learn? can that style bracelet only be made on a loom?

    Interesting pattern! Does it take much patience? How long did it take you to finish? It’s very pretty!

    Thank you very much all of you ! Really pleased you like it and I too love the description of a ‘navajo blanket’ for my arm !! …lovely !!!
    Peggy3, it is easy to learn, if you buy the loom you get a short instruction booklet with it. I have made many and a few years ago made one, wore it to work and everybody wanted one for a Xmas present! In the end I made a dozen !!! I like this one though because I used a different mixture of beads. I think you don’t need to use a loom but I think it’s easier if you do! Keeps it more tidy! Thank you all, again. x
