What are you most proud of? I was able to make a home made loom with a picture frame and nails and end up actually completing the bracelet in just a couple hours. Except for that peyote tube... I'll conquer that next.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Have patience, have fun, be creative and if you are just starting out and not sure you want to invest in a loom, make one with a picture frame and nails. I spent less than $10 for my setup and it worked satisfactorily.

I like the beads you used, and the location you took the picture! very creative, good luck on tackling the peyote clasp on your next try!

No, I don't. I made a simple loom like the one she showed in the video. I made it from a 16x20 frame and a bunch of nails. Thanks for the compliment! <3
