Inspiration for jewelry designs can come from anywhere, even history. Artbeads Vice President Cortney's daughter made this bracelet using the Ricks beading loom, featured in this Artbeads Cafe episode. As she was weaving, the developing pattern reminded her of railroad tracks with a row of rocks down the middle, which led her to think of the golden seed beads as the "Golden Spike" that joined the rails of the First Transcontinental Railroad. Her color palette and beading pattern inspired her to take a creative cue from history. Whether back in time or onward to modern adventures, the Ricks beading loom is sure to get your creativity moving in new directions!
