Finished my brown bracelet - the terminals suck!
10/0 Miyuki Delicas in Brown Iris mixed with 11/0 Toho Rounds Metallic Iris Green/Brown. Nymo Brown Size D thread.
I love the width, but I could have added maybe 5 more rows. I'm having such trouble finishing the ends (terminals). I forgot to warp weave the warp threads in. I put the E-6000 epoxy on the ends before I lifted the piece from the loom. On one side, once I threaded the threads through the clasp, the bead, and the crimp bead, I crimped the bead closed and it cut the threads and came apart! I threaded a 7 strand tigertail wire through the last row and it worked. I have to really figure out how to end these things. I didn't want to do the anchor weave, but I may have to. I love the Miyuki Delica beads. They're exquisite. There were NO bad beads in the bunch.
I think my next project will be a white/crystal AB bracelet for my sister.
