PROJECT B8054
Designer: Alexandra Smith
Skill Level: Intermediate
An inverted symmetry is created in this geometric loom bracelet, alternating a rustic holiday palette of Miyuki 11/0 round seed beads in Ruby, Olive, Bronze, and Cream.
Instructions
This bracelet uses a chain extender for adjustable length from 6.25 to 8 inches.
  1. If you are new to loom weaving, begin by watching the video: How to Use the Jewel Loom Beading Loom. You will use white size D Nymo to set up your loom as shown in the video. For this pattern, you will need 12 warp threads.
  2. Once your loom is set up, thread your loom needle with a length of Nymo as long as you are comfortable working with. You will need to tie off and add new thread to your loom weaving as you work.
  3. Follow the pattern shown in the illustration to create 5.25 inches of loom weaving, or continue the pattern to your desired length.
  4. To finish off your bracelet, please watch the video: How to Finish Off Traditional Loom Work and Add a Slider Clasp. Follow along with the video to tie off the threads of your bracelet and attach your slide ends.
  5. To attach your clasp and chain extender: Using pliers, remove the end link of your chain extender to use as a jump ring for your clasp. Onto this link, slide the loop of your clasp. Also slide on the loop of a slide end on one side of your bracelet. Close the link. Now open another end link on your chain extender, this time attaching the slide end on the opposite side of your bracelet. Close the link. Enjoy!
