I got a bead loom for Christmas and I’ve been playing with different techniques. Here’s the loom, just like a fabric loom, but a bit smaller. This one fits on my lap comfortably.

I’ve also been debating different ways to finish the bracelet, I like elastic as it’s much easier to wear, but  glue on elastic is a bit ugly and with four strands it can be a irritating on your skin, so I’ve chosen a silver clasp for this amethyst bracelet. And here it is finished….

Feeling inspired I fired up the loom to make another, this time with Botswana Agate. I love all the colours in agate, from green and yellow to grey and orange.

Both finished bracelets, are now for sale, you can see more pictures and buy in my Folksy shop here.
