So happy this project is finished!

Here's the full effect:


And, the "in use" shot:


And, the fail shot - taken after my dear husband pulled on one of the dangly ends:


Now I remember why I got rid of the bead loom I used to own. Other than the husband-induced fail, I'm happy with the result. IF I were to try this again, I would definitely spend the $5 to get a new loom instead of crafting one with cardboard and an old box. And, I would spend the extra cash on nicer seed beads - the kind packaged in the neat little pre-sorted tubes. Sure, $2.99 for a big ole bag of seed beads sound great ... until I realized the size differences in the beads and the holes! Lessons learned - it part of being a crafter! Smiley

Very cool, there's just something about rainbows Smiley
It also looks like it has a nice texture, the sort that you want to run through your hands.
