Loom Woven Beaded Bracelets by Lynn Smythe

Three beaded loom woven bracelets with fused glass clasps by Lynn Smythe.

Besides making fused glass and beaded jewelry, I used to write how to articles for various craft and jewelry magazines. This blog post shows a few of my original design loom woven bracelets, each of which feature a clasp made with one of my fused glass cabochons. I used size 11/0 Miyuki delica cylinder beads for the loom woven portion of each bracelet. The clasps were created using the technique of bead embroidery on ultra-suede.

One of my future projects is to offer my loom woven, peyote stitch and brick stitch bead patterns for sale on The Creative Cottage website. The patterns will include a color graph, a custom bead graph and a bead shopping list, showing the exact brand, size and color of beads used. I typically use cylinder beads, either Miyuki delicas or Toho Aiko, to create my bead patterns.
