I hope you all had a wonderful holiday weekend! If you have never tried beading on a loom, you should totally try it. It is super easy and super addicting, especially when you can create your own patterns. I created the heart bracelet pattern a few years back when I decided to make bracelets for a few friends and family members. It’s the first pattern I ever attempted so I decided to keep it simple. I do really like how they came out.
I used the same pattern but varied the colors, some were black, red, and grey another was black, metallic blue and clear. The variations are endless.
If you are not familiar with Loom Beading here is a great tutorial by Jewelry Supply on YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_detailpage&v=ScjJsOIQP3w
Bead looms are not very expensive unless you want to get fancy. They usually range from about $9.00 and up.
Here is the bracelet:
Making the pattern:
Each dot is a bead, fill in the holes until you’re happy with your pattern, then get beading!
Create your own! Just repeat pattern until its as long as you want. Is even an awesome bookmark.
