Kymo Studded Loom Bracelet

PROJECT B8046
Designer: Alexandra Smith
Skill Level: Intermediate
This loom bracelet combines Toho 8/0 seed beads with two styles of Cymbal bead substitutes: round studs with shanks and bar shaped 2-hole beads. These 24k gold plated components lend a sleek and modern look to traditional loom work, opening up a world of new design possibilities.
Instructions
This bracelet includes an extension chain to allow for adjustable length of 6 to 8.5 inches. Note: You will also need a toothpick to complete this project.
  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 8 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 as your work.
  3. Please watch the video: How to Use Cymbal Bead Substitutes with 8/0 Seed Beads in Loom Work. Follow along with the video to create the pattern shown using Toho 8/0 seed beads, Cymbal round studs with shanks, and Cymbal bar shaped 2-hole beads.
  4. Once you have woven your desired length, 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 clasp. Enjoy!
