Here's a tutorial from Youtube for the popular leather wrap style bracelets. The craze has been going on for months and I was a little slow wanting to get on the bandwagon with it. I finally did and I now enjoy working them up.
Those are really nice! They are definitely all the rage nowadays. I like how you've paired them with the glass buttons.
ThAnK YoU ladies. Funny, I just raided a few of my Lampwork Etc. forum members Etsy shops. My mailbox has been stuffed with packages of lampwork buttons the last couple of days. I have a new stash forming here before my eyes. I can't wait to play with some of them with this leather wrap style bracelet and in some of my beaded crochet.
I forgot I even posted this thread. Here's some more I did from this tutorial using lampwork buttons. Yes, some of these lampwork buttons were designed by glass artists who share on this forum. Sure hope I'm not posting too many pics within this thread. I'm seriously addicted to making these bracelets. It's just finding the time to work them up lately. Life has been really busy lately with everything except beading and creating goodies.
How do you do them on a loom? I'm interested in how I can incorporate a loom into my jewelry making skills.
Ditto!!! I'm sure there's a how to video on Youtube. I've been eye spying the 3 to 5 wide and wondering how they do them. Someone on the Lampwork Etc. forum mentioned a loom as well. I've never done any beadwork on a loom but have always been interested in maybe adding it to my stash and learning something new. On this forum Cat does some stunning beadwork that always grabs my attention. It makes sense that this type bracelet would work up easier on and loom.
Lotty64 don't forget to post the pictures of the lovely ones you've made!
Yes!!! We'd love to see more inspirtation.
I must admit I've watched the videos listed and now I'm considering a bead loom. I pulled up a past thread on the Lampwork Etc. forum and got a few ideas from there. Anyone want to add to my considerations? I'm just looking for one to complete bracelets at the moment. But as usual I'm sure it will move into more before I know it. I love all of Cats designs posted in the show and tell threads.
