Bangle Bracelet Weaver With Unique Fibers

10

This bracelet is beautifully woven and unique because of an easy to use new tool from Beadalon.

The fibers I used include our Lovely Knots 1mm cord along with a small ball of recycled sari yarn.

Kleshna’s Bangle Bracelet Weaver tool was launched in January and you will find a step by step photo how-to in the box detailing how to both set up and use the tool.  I also included a video tutorial at the end on this post.

You can see how my two very different fibers wove to create a gorgeous kaleidoscope of color.  I also used the Lovely Knots cord to sew the finished weaving together by running a needle next to the weft pins and following the Beadalon instruction.

This is a delightful one of a kind fiber bracelet.

Bangle Bracelet Weaver Tool

Bangle Bracelet Weaver Tool

I’m sporting my first bangle bracelet created on a brand new jewelry making tool; the Bangle Bracelet Weaver Tool by Beadalon.

Bangle Bracelet Weaver Tool

The tool was unveiled in January at the Craft and Hobby (CHA) Mega show in California and I was able to watch the inventor demonstrate it in the Beadalon booth.

“Weave intricate bracelets with ease! Designed by international designer, teacher, and presenter Kleshna. Use a variety of bead stringing wires in diameters 0.15 in (0.38 mm) through .036 in (0.91 mm) plus other threads and cords.”

The tool won the Hot Product Award for the Bead and Jewelry category at the CHA show.

I could not await to try the tool!  I knew that it worked beautifully with wire but I was excited to experiment with our cotton wax cords first.

In minutes, simply by following the printed instructions, I could see my gorgeous bracelet taking shape.

Since I used two colors the color wave was subtle but so pretty.

This is going to be the first of many bracelets.  I can’t wait to try some different fiber combinations and look forward to adding some beads as well.
