So I am looking for different charm weaves and special works like belts, sashes, belly dancer sets etc.

What charm weaves do you like?

What special items do you like to make? What about those items piqued your interest?

I made this Barrel weave charm bracelet for my Mom.



I have seen people do charm bracelets with Shaggy Loops, Charm Linkage, Vanilla, European 4 in 1, and Byzantine variations Smile

Euro 4-1 looks really nice if you want a cluster of charms instead of a row. I'm actually just finishing up a bracelet like this for my mom - five rows of E4-1 with a bunch of charms set up to look like a field of butterflies on it. I've also used Byzantine for a more traditional charm-type bracelet.

I have a few different styles of bracelets for the charms. Byzantine segments with bigger rings for connections, standard 2-2-2 is also a great method.

I am mainly looking for ideas on the charms themselves.

If you search weaves for "units", you can find lots of good weaves to use as charms. Helm Orb, Celtic Star, December, Tetra Orb, Triangle are some of my favorites. There are more.

I didn't even think that could be what 'Lysenis' meant before *doh*

these are some charms i put on 0.048" wire bizantine braclets a few times. the charms are segments of : universal triangle, sweet pea, turtle back, j 6 in 2, 4 winds or cloud cover or whatever that is called, one of them is half a barrel segment with double chains dangling cuz i think it looks like a rain cloud. http://corvuschainmaille.ning.com/photo/charm-bracelet-5?context=album&albumId=2032108%3AAlbum%3A108433 anywho, hope that helps.

I think that orbit weaves would look very good, and I agree that something as simple as European 4-1 would be great too.

A few unit weaves I like: Not Tao 3, B^3, Fireman's Hold 4, Circles (in a triangular variant, look at the gallery)


Craft isn't cheaper than therapy, but it's more fun.
