Alicorn Loom Bracelet

PROJECT B2456
Designer: Kat Silvia
Skill Level: Intermediate

A colorful loom is the perfect way to showcase this lovely Alicorn Czech Seed Bead Mix. No pattern needed! Just loom away and have fun with this mix.

Instructions
This design is easy to size with the adjustable clasp and random pattern, which means you can make the pattern as long or short as you like. You will also need a scrap of wire or toothpick for this project.
  1. If you are new to working with the Jewel Loom, please watch our video: How to Use the Jewel Loom Beading Loom. Then, please watch our Quick Tip video: How to Set up the Jewel Loom for Large Beads. From what you learned in those videos you will set up your loom using the grooves and skipping one notch in-between each warp thread. You will set it up so you have 9 warp threads.
  2. Once you have your loom set up, thread your needle with about 4 feet of thread and begin adding your beads. Choose a random color pattern when picking up the beads. Continue weaving until you have added your main length. Keep in mind that the clasp will accommodate up to 2 extra inches. Tie off and weave in your weft thread tails.
  3. Then please watch our video: How to Finish Off Traditional Loom Work and Add a Slider Clasp. From what you learned in the video, cut the piece off of the loom, and tie together your threads. Because you will have 9 threads, simply tie off the last three together instead of the last two. Then trim the ends. Before you add the slide clasp, take your pliers and slip them into the tube, and pry open the clasp a little bit. This will help accommodate the larger beads. Do this from both sides of the clasp. To finish the clasp, use a pair of chain nose pliers to help bend down the ends of the clasp.
