My girlfriend's favorite colors are green and purple, so for my first beading on a loom project I decided to make her a bracelet. The actual idea for the bracelet has been stuck in my head for a few months, and I've looked at various mediums to make it (friendship bracelets were also a viable choice in my head), and decided that this medium was the best and most effective for creating the exact look I wanted.



What's really great is I mostly cross-stitch (although I've been branching out, and want to branch out even more, which is why I'm so addicted to this website  Grin) and cross-stitch patterns make for great beading on a loom projects. I also have a few other jewelry ideas in mind, particularly a set of earrings for my girlfriend's sister and a necklace for myself. Also, rainbow bracelets for a few of my friends.

Wow, crafting sure is addicting  Cheesy

thats looking really good! I love the color combo  Grin  cant wait to see it finished (and im sure she will love it!)

I too started out with crossstich and ended up in beading. Do you know about Square stitch? It creates the same effect but is worked off-loom - good for converting those larger Cross stich patterns!

here's a links to a couple of tutorials

No, I have no idea, I just started beading. Thanks for the links! I'm also going to start including beadwork in my cross-stitching, but my girlfriend and her sister said not to do it in the flowers I'm making for their mom.
