I wanted some bangles. You know, like this but not $1,095.00. I decided to take out my Mini Mirrix and attempt to make my own. The problem with making a woven bangle is that it needs to be fairly rigid and generally beaded bracelets are not. Claudia suggested I weave something wide and then roll it into a tube to add strength, which I think would work and I intend to try. I decided to first use a combination of SoftFlex wire and silk as my warp and weave a piece using only 8/0 beads.
