Seed Bead Bracelets

I am not one to wear expensive jewelry. I would rather have lots of costume jewelry. And I do. My favorite pieces to wear are earrings and bracelets. I always have my left wrist stacked with bracelets usually from PuraVida bracelets. 

I like beaded jewelry too. Native American style is my favorite beaded jewelry. I find it so interesting how they can create beautiful jewelry using tiny seed beads. 

After studying some photos of seed bead bracelets, I went to Amazon and ordered what I needed to create my own beaded bracelet.

I bought a loom, beads, bead thread and a beading needle. Then I began to create. 

This is not the first time I have played with beads. 

I remember during my school days back in the 80’s we would make little friendship pens. They were fun to create and the girls would make and trade them around the school. 

Now I’ve been making bracelets. Here are a few I have made so far.

The blue one was made for my sister by request. They are not professional quality but no to bad for a first timer.  The problem I have is finding beads that are uniform in size. Some are thick, some are thin and some are lopsided.

My favorite one is the green one. This is the second one I made and It goes with a lot of different outfits. 

Loom beading is a little tedious but easy. I found some “how to” videos on the internet and began creating. Threading the loom is the hardest part. I find it rewarding to see a pattern appear and how the colors come together.

  3. These are just lovely, thank you for sharing them with us at Handmade Monday.

  4. Wow, those are so cute. You did a great job making them. I love the yellow one. My childhood friend was really into beads, and she made many pieces of jewelry. She was the first one who introduced me to jewelry, and like you, I just mainly wear the bracelets now. But I used to love the dangling earrings as well. What a great hobby this is.
