Weave-Along 26: The Whitney & Willa Beaded Wrap Bracelet
Named after one of our favorite mother and daughter pairs, this lovely three wrap bracelet reminds us of their inner and outer beauty and love for one another. Dazzle your wrist and, we hope, a friend or daughter’s or mother’s wrist, with this simple, yet elegant piece of unconditional love.
This project is perfect for beginners. Wrap a pair of waxed cotton cord and loop it around your loom and a button and you are ready to weave. Nothing could be easier. There is absolutely no finishing because the piece you take off the loom is the bracelet you put on your wrist.
The kit contains nine different colors of size 11/0 Delica beads which will be plenty to weave a bracelet for a wrist up to an eight-inch circumference. (heck, there will even be leftover so you might even get more length out of it); a three-yard length of waxed cotton cord; a lovely pewter button; a bobbin of C-Lon D beading thread.
Whitney, of the Whitney & Willa in this project's name, is currently battling Myasthenia Gravis. If you choose, you can pay $30 rather than $25 for the weave-along kit and we will donate that $5 directly to Whitney to help fight her illness. Visit her website, Unknown Etiology, where she hopes to shed light on the experiences of those living with chronic illnesses.
What's a Weave-Along?
A weave-along is a FREE online course. Claudia Chase and Elena Zuyok of Mirrix Looms will lead participants through a project woven on a loom. Every Sunday during the weave-along, participants will get an email going over what had been worked on the week before and giving instructions and tips for the week ahead. Participants are encouraged to ask questions and engage with other members of the weave-along via email and social media sites including the Mirrix Facebook Page, Mirrix Facebook Group and Mirrix Ravelry Page. This is a community event!
