If you have always thought beadwork was only for women, get ready to be disappointed.
This Christmas I made 2 nice gifts for a young man who is crazy for soccer and loves bracelets.
The first is a simple keychain with a soccer ball
You might add a beaded t-shirt or a string with the name of his favorite team to enrich it.
I left it quite simple 'cause over the years I've already made him enough black/red presents (he roots for Milan)...
If you want to make something similar you'll find a gorgoeus twin bead ball on Preciosa website or a peyote graph on etsy from Lost in Paradise shop.
The bracelet I made is adjustable and made with matte black seed beads and twin beads, so no risk of making it look "too beady"
If you look it from a distance it looks like kumihimo made with some leather rope, and looks pretty good on a man wrist.
You can find a lot of ideas for beaded man bracelets on Etsy: for the game-obsessed boy by Tarpan
