At last - a new make!


I'm very pleased with how this bracelet has turned out - this is the re-make I'd tried on my loom a few weeks ago, but it just didn't feel and look right.
I used brick-stitch, with 4 colours of 4mm cubes, then with a rope edging using purple size 11s then added a beaded bead for the toggle to go through the gap - this was a little tricky working this but I got there! I'm not convinced however if I've attached the toggle securely to stay through the hole; I may re-think this and try another idea. In the meantime I'd love to hear your comments! Thank you for your time.

Gorgeous bracelet - I made one with a beaded toggle like that and think the hole needas to be smaller - more square than oblong so you have to poke the toggle in and when you turn it round to lie flat the hole is smaller than the toggle? Do I make sense?
