Thanks for all the comments!  Since there seems to be some interest, I'm working on a tutorial right now.  Cheesy  To answer some of the questions - I did use a "loom," but I made it out of a cardboard box.  The beads I used are regular glass seed beads, you can find them at any craft shop.  The thicker threads are embroidery floss and the beads are strung using...um...this waxed thread I found somewhere.  Also a really really thin needle.  Oh, except Pirate's and Hobbit's were strung with silver thread from JoAnn's.  I cut the embroidery floss long enough to tie around my own wrist, plus some inches.  Since I tend to be paranoid about making them too short they ended up about a foot and a half long.   Roll Eyes

i get paranoid too, don't worry.

amazing job, so easy!
i'm going to try my hand at this.

And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.

I love these types of bracelets. I've always wanted to learn how to make them, but never got around to it. Thanks for the tute! Now I just need to go buy some supplies...


"To love is to risk not being loved in return. To hope is to risk pain. To try is to risk failure, but risk must be taken because the greatest hazard in life is to risk nothing.
