Glossy Cobblestone Bracelet

PROJECT B8068
Designer: Alexandra Smith
Skill Level: Intermediate
Mixed rows of 6/0 metallic seed beads create an appealing glint in this loom bracelet, embellished with bronze beaded edging. Reimagine this design using your own favorite bead mixes and color combinations.
Instructions
This bracelet is adjustable from 6.5 to 8.5 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 size D Nymo to set up your loom as shown in the video. For this pattern, you will need 6 warps.
  2. Once your loom is set up, thread your loom needle with a length of Nymo as long as your are comfortable working with. You will need to tie off and add new thread to your loom weaving as you work.
  3. Create 5.75 inches of loom weaving, starting and ending with one row of 8/0 seed beads, and weaving 6/0 beads for the remainder of the length. Note: the smaller sized beads on either end of the weaving will taper the width of the bracelet to accommodate the 13mm slide end clasp. For a similar technique, see our video: How to Taper Loom Weaving using Smaller Seed Beads.
  4. To create the decorative beaded edging, please watch the video: How to Add a Beaded Edge to Loom Work. Using what you have learned in the video, weave your needle back up along the sides of your loom weaving, adding five 11/0 bronze beads per stitch.
  5. To complete your bracelet and attach your clasp, 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 end clasp. Enjoy!
