Woven Cuff Bracelet

I made this woven bracelet on my Cricket loom. Starting out the first few rows was pretty frustrating, but I persevered and it became easier. I didn't do any special patterns, but just wove with a variety of silk, rayon and novelty yarns. Not sure if the advanced pattern techniques shown in the class will work with the Cricket loom, as they were all demonstrated on the Mirrix tapestry loom. I'd loved to have seen some of those techniques demo'd on the Cricket! I'm sure I'll try another woven cuff bracelet as I really like the finished product!

Q&A with justanotherbric

Give me an estimate of the beginners cost of supplies. I'm an 85 yr old artist with time on my hands !
justanotherbric answered:
I purchased the cuffs on Etsy - (KKRAFTSUPPLIES) - $17.75 plus shipping for (6) 1.5" brass cuff blanks. I had some novelty yarns and purchased a few more at various places. Maybe a couple of dollars worth in each bracelet. I already had some seed beads. The big cost, of course, is the loom. I used a Cricket loom that I already owned. I think this would be a breeze on a Mirrix loom, but I don't own one so I struggled through with my Cricket loom. Good luck!
