A Bracelet for Mom

Now that Christmas is over, I can show you the bead loom bracelet I made for my Mom! I wanted to try a new design for her, and I knew just the colors she’d like best: purple, turquoise, and orange.

I am still really loving the design process (just me and my graph paper!) and the feeling of creating a beaded fabric.

I’m also way more confident in my finishing and closure skills. Huzzah!

Just for fun, here are all of the bracelets I’ve made, with the oldest at the top and the newest at the bottom. On those first ones, my cording was too wide for my beading needle, so I had to just tie it off. But then I found some thinner thread and learned to finish gracefully. I am having way too much fun with this. To whomever gave me my bead loom for Christmas when I was 13 or so: thank you so much. (Bead loom bracelets, previously: here and here).
