    My GF has been making these 'video-game' themed bracelets using a beadloom I bought her for Christmas. Here are some examples:

    Super Mario Bros. 3

    Mushrooms!

    Do you guys have any more ideas on themes she could use and would you buy these if you saw them for sale?

    Note: Not attempting to sell anything...just getting a lock on people's opinions.

    Wow, tell your girlfriend she is really talented! Those are amazing!

    I agree with mthr on Space Invaders, and maybe a Pac Man chasing a ghost would be sweet!

    I personally wouldn't buy one to wear, but maybe to attatch to my backpack or something

    I already have the Pacman one planned out I've just been too busy lately to make it.
    I'll get my BF (JKR Firefox) to upload the design for it after.
    *Not trying to sell anything but how much would you buy one of these for?

    Well, they are awesome and custom made, but I personally would pay only 20$ because I'm a cheapass and don't want to spend a lot.
