There are so many ways to mix your beads with other materials like fabric and yarn. Cheri created this bracelet with TOHO seed beads and ribbons and yarns on the Ricks Beading Loom. She even knotted her fabrics on the edges of her bracelet to add even more style. You can see more ideas for adding fabrics and fibers into your jewelry in this Artbeads Cafe Episode.
