I made this bracelet for my best friend for christmas. Check it out:






I'm pretty much the bead-lizard master. I make them all the time, but only on a very small scale.

wow that is a neat bracelet. I have a freind who goes nuts for pretty much anything lizard! I would never have thought about doing a whole repetative row like that. Good job! Since you are the master about how long would it take you to make one or a novice to make one?

That's a great little bracelet; I'm sure your friend loves it (and if not you can send it to me tee hee.)

Never try to teach a pig to sing; it wastes your time and it annoys the pig.

I believe it took me around 2 hours, give or take a few minutes.

Oh, and here it is all wrapped up! We ran out of christmas paper so I had to improvise. I crinkled up some white construction paper and wrapped it, then put my finger on an ink pad and rubbed it over the creases on the paper. Finished it off with a little bit of ribbon.

Oh, I am SO making one of these this week befor vacation ends!! I LOVE IT!!!

How did you start and end it? I guess it's mostly the end- you use 2 strands of wire (or one strand folded in half, so 2 ends, actually?), right? What do  you do with the two ends at the...um...end?

1. Put your ring onto the two wires and move it towards the bottom.

2. Fold your wires over the ring, as in the picture.

3. Twist the wires around themselves a few times below the ring, and snip off the ends.

I used to make those when I was little in daycare. Maybe I'll make some again.  Cheesy
