Crimson Braid


Project Info:

Level: Intermediate

Estimated time: Weekend Project

Project by: Janice Parsons
Sample By: Jennifer Tello

Using the techniques taught by Sam Applegate in Tricks to Looming and Beadweaving, Jen has created an opulent cuff perfect for the holidays. The pattern is three braids of red 8/0’s woven around Crystal AB and Galvanized Pewter seed beads. It’s really lovely, and can be replicated in other colors just as easily.

Please see the Project Map below to acquaint yourself with the bracelet pattern and layout in addition to watching the video. We think you’ll be amazed at how fun it is to loom. We hope you enjoy!
