Blue Sky Loom Bracelet

PROJECT B2292
Designer: Kat Silvia
Skill Level: Advanced
This graduated loom pattern looks like a blue digital sky by using our Exclusive Beadaholique Designer Palette in a lovely Ombre blue.
Instructions
Please watch our video: How to Use the Ricks Beading Loom. Set up your loom so that you have 6 inches from pole to pole. The clasp will add about 1/2 inch to the overall length.
  1. Notes about the Pattern: If you want to adjust the length you may need to adjust the pattern. I recommend starting in the center of the pattern (meaning at the bottom of the first pattern with the grey beads on it) and working your way out to make sure you have enough room on both sides. You can adjust as you get closer to the poles.
  2. Set up the loom with 27 warp threads. Thread your loom needle with a length of thread you are comfortable working with. As you weave you will need to tie off and add new thread.
  3. For this pattern the grey beads represent the matte opaque royal blue beads, then graduate to the opaque light sapphire beads and finally the opaque agate beads. The white lined crystal AB beads are the white backdrop of the pattern.
  4. Weave the loom until you have no more room to add rows. Once you have finished weaving, slide the work off of the loom poles.
  5. Next, please watch: How to Use Slide End Tubes for Miyuki Delica Bead Weaving. In this video you'll see how to slide on your ends to the loom work.
  6. Finally to attach the clasp, open one jump ring and attach it to the loop of one slide end. Close the jump ring. Attach another jump ring to this one, and then add one more. Then open one more jump ring to the last jump ring you added and to one end of the toggle clasp. Complete this for all four clasp portions around the bracelet.
