Here is a loomed bracelet I finished last night. I used high quality turquoise rondelle beads with 4mm round coral beads. The foundation is red waxed linen and I used Tenara thread (Gore-Tex) to hold the beads in place. Tenure is very strong thread - the same used to make sailboat sails.
The end caps I made by hand from Sterling silver. Each cap features two Sleeping Beauty turquoise 3mm cabs set in fine silver bezels.
The figure 8 lobster claw is Sterling, as are the rings.
Now, this wasn't made as a custom order but a very special customer saw it in its unfinished state and snagged it as hers. She saw the finished product this morning and loves it!
I'm glad it's going to a good home! Enjoy it, Deborah!
