These are definitely some of my favorite projects, I love the feeling of woven beads against my skin when I wear them ^_^

The top bracelet is my spring break project: Tetris bracelet, because I love Tetris way too much! That's right, all the little geometric shapes are Tetris shapes! Designing the pattern so that I used all the shapes and it all fit almost took longer than making the bracelet itself.
The second bracelet is one I made for my younger sister. It was supposed to be kind of like a flower design, but it ended up more like diamonds. That's ok though, I still like it a lot.

Yeah, there's a special technique for weaving beads on a loom. It's actually very easy, they sell kits at places like Michael's and AC Moore.

http://www.beadlooms.com/instruction.html   <- This is the site I learned from, the directions in the kit I got were horrible.

Thank you so much for the nice comments, everyone!  Cheesy
