Wrap Bracelets are constructed using a technique strongly related to loom weaving, with influence from basket weaving.     The technique used to weave Wrap Bracelets is typically referred to as “laddering”.

Here, you set up two warp cords (the leather) and weave, using either a Soumak or a Basket Weave Figure 8 pattern, with 2 needles, to create a composition between the two warp cords.    

Capture the colors, patterns and textures of the Aztecs within two lengths of leather in this Wrap Bracelet!

 

Materials:
Leather cord
Mix of Czech fire polish beads
Czechmate tile beads
micro c-lon bead cord
c-lon #18 bead cord
pewter button
g-s hypo cement
#10 English beading needles
Collapsible eye needles
