New Orleans

Sample by Beckie Ten Eyck

Mardi Gras is the time of year in New Orleans when everyone dresses in party colors for Carnival. This Tapestry bracelet is a perfect for dancing the night away in the French Quarter. The mix of rich purple, gold and copper beads are ready to “Laissez les bons temps rouler!”

The Tapestry bracelet is based on classic techniques from Tricks to Looming and Bead Weaving, and incorporates a variety of beads to mix up the technique. By substituting heavier cords, assorted bead sizes/shapes and a heavier clasp, the project takes on a new look.

To learn the techniques used in this project, start with Sam’s video to learn how to set up a loom using a design board and how to weave beads. Next download the PDF handout on this page which adapts the techniques from the video to the Tapestry Project using heavier cord, assorted bead shapes and sizes and demonstrates how to add a box clasp.
