This little loom got me started. It limits you to what type of warp you can use, but it is still fun!! I did order the Mirrix loom and am waiting for that to arrive. Good luck with your projects! Post some when you can.

As I was saying before I accidentally hit "enter"....Totally excited that you can create this bracelet on a wire loom..... You really did a great job even though you didn't have the Mirrix loom. I like that you didn't let not having the proper loom stop you from weaving the project anyway. : ) They are a little pricey especially when one is not working. But I agree once I get back on my feet I'm going to save for one of those looms also.

DTSwan, what loom is this? I am a complete novice but have joined this class and need a loom before I begin. I bead weave by hand but thought I would try looming and want to test the waters before investing in a quality loom. Love your creations!

I have the same type of loom (I've had it for years) and was just wondering if I could use it for the bracelet....and see...you made a really great bracelet! I hope mine will look this good, too.
