Rising Phoenix Bracelet
My second post for my second featured rainbow loom designer, Claire’s Wears is this super cute and easy Rising Phoenix Bracelet design. She made this just the last quarter of this year 2015 and it has been a crowd favorite to make. It is a hook only design and it somehow stands up to the name as you can see. If you can imagine a phoenix rising up to fly, with its wings spread beautifully. With the proper color combo, we could achieve a color for this design to really come up to what it wanted us to see. But as I am a playful one, and has the love for cute things and all, I experimented with a lot of color combos and all of them are really pretty.
This Rising Phoenix design is made to be a bracelet, but I intentionally made it to be a cellphone charm. Christmas is fast approaching and I’m thinking of giving some friends with a little token to make them smile and remember me this holiday.
Here is what Rising Phoenix Bracelet looks like (minus the tiny flower). Obviously mine is not a bracelet, but a cellphone charm. This is only a section of the bracelet. and making a few more sections of this turns into a bracelet.
This design is base on a 14-loops set-up of bands on a hook. If you know how to make the standard 6-loops set-up base you can just add 4 more bands on each side to make it a 14-loops set-up.
What you’ll be needing to make this bracelet:
1. 1 or 2 pcs of Rainbow Loom Hook or a crochet hook that is double ended for easy flipping of bands. I use 2 hooks in making this design. A double ended hook and a regular hook for the help. Claire uses a help-a-band (a band and a c-clip) in her tutorial to help hold other bands while making. Below is my set-up using 2 hooks. If you are good enough to hold 2 hooks, this is the best way to do it. If not, you can use Claire’s technique.
2. Set of bands – As any other bracelets we can also experiment colors for this design. You will only need approximately 25 or less bands to make one section of the bracelet. I used different colors for my sample in this post, mostly opaques, some jelly and some sweets bands. Here are the sections I have made, you can use the color combos I made if you like. This are just random color combinations I made, just grabbing what color is near while I’m working, hehe.
3. A c-clip if you will be making a bracelet. You can use a clear one or the new colored ones. I used the c-clips temporarily before I put on the charms string in it, so they wouldn’t fall out. As for the cellphone charm, I use some majorica pearl beads in 8mm size, a cp charm string, some jump rings and end caps for the beads, and a T flat head pin. To know how to make this bracelet section into a cellphone charms as I did, you can find it here.

Here are my finished cellphone charms! I hope you like them! They are probably hanging now to they respective phones because I already sent these as gifts to friends. I wish they are well taken cared of and the owner loves them. 😉
