Ladder Bracelet

Yesterday happened to be my daughter-in-law, Maria's, birthday, and I always enjoy making something special for her at this time.  The ladder bracelet design shown here was made popular by Chan Luu, who makes and sells beautiful bracelets, and I found a very good free tutorial at www.beadshop.com so that I could try to make one.  I like how it turned out.

I"ve been making these as well Loretta. How many hours did it take you? I've made 2 so far and I'm working on the third. Have you tried using BeadShops KO thread? It's wonderful!

Love your blog. You have some great ideas and beautiful pieces. Have you seen this press release and news article? Blogrower on Typobounty is a new game changing concept and could greatly affect online blogs like yours. You can become a registered hunter (it's free to join) and make money by finding errors on internet websites. Secondly, you can submit your blog on their site and increase your blog readership by allowing hunters to hunt for errors on your website. Imagine huge numbers of hunters reading every word. I just thought you or readers might be interested.For more information please check out the press releases at

Vicki-You were my inspiration to learn how to make this bracelet. I saw your post regarding the one that you made for your daughter. I saw a similar bracelet at Nordstroms that was on sale for $139.00, then I saw your post so I knew I could learn how to do this.

It took me about 10 hours on the first one. I have it down to about 4 now, depending on how many wraps I do.

Yes I have used their KO thread. I love it. I am going to try their herring bone bracelet next.
