Kaleidoscope Bracelet

The next design I came up with I'm calling "kaleidoscope" simply because it reminds me of those toys you look through that changes color as it moves around. Although, I did toy with different names, particularly circle something or other, since it is pretty circular, but there is already a circle bracelet. The only bad thing about this bracelet is that it requires you to have 5 to 7 pin BARS to make it (so 2 or 3 looms).







This bracelet was made on 5 pin bars. It is a little more on the oval side, than round, but it is still awesome.










This bracelet was made on 7 pin bars. It definitely is round in appearance and you are able to add more color to the bracelet. The circles are about 2" in diameter. It looks really neat when you wear it!




















The following pictures are of the 5 pin bracelets with extra loops added to give them a more ornate appearance. I think they look pretty this way, not exactly a flower, but just a touch more feminine.








This last picture is of a 9 pin bar bracelet that I'm working on. So far, I think it's looking pretty good!

















So, what do you think of these bracelets?

    1. Thank you! I think that a lot of my designs are inspired by my love of crochet. Some of my newest designs are inspired by granny squares. I just love being creative and seeing what I can do with a little time and effort.
