Roxie Bracelet

PROJECT B1098
Designer: Megan Milliken
Skill Level: Advanced
This shimmering color blocked bracelet has an updated art deco style. It works up quickly on a loom, and is finished with pretty, sleek slide ends. NOTE: The toggle clasps used in this bracelet have been discontinued and have been replaced by a slightly smaller toggle clasp. The overall look of the bracelet will not change much, but the toggles will be slightly smaller than those pictured.
Instructions
Finished size: approximately 6.5". To lengthen, be sure to set up your loom accordingly, and then simply continue the weaving, extending the pattern or improvising if you'd like. To shorten, be sure to set up your loom accordingly, and then simply stop the pattern when you achieve the desired length. The clasps will add approximately an inch to the length of the woven piece.
  1. Before you begin, watch the instructional video: How to Use the Ricks Beading Loom. This video will walk you through the process of beading on this new type of loom.
  2. Use gray NYMO thread to set up your beading loom with 26 warp threads about 5.25" long. Remember, this is the length from the outside edges of the warp rods.
  3. As demonstrated in the video, begin to weave your bracelet. Using size 11/0 Miyuki Delica beads in silver lined emerald, galvanized dark aqua, semi matte silver lined medium blue, and fuchsia silk satin, follow the pattern, starting at the bottom of the image on the right. Work upward as you work up your warp threads, and move to the bottom of the image on the left when you've finished the pattern on the right. Continue to work upward until you're finished.
  4. Finish the piece as shown in the video, removing it from the loom, spreading the beads evenly to take up the slack in the warp threads, and then tie off and weave in your thread tails.
  5. Use pliers to fold down one end on a gold plated 2 loop tube slide end. Slide the last row of your woven piece into the tube, and then bend down the other end of the tube. Repeat with the second tube slide end on the other end of your woven piece.
  6. Open the attached rings on one of the tube slide ends and insert a toggle ring into each ring. Close the rings.
  7. On the other tube slide end, attach a jump ring to each attached ring and close them. Then use a second jump ring on each side to attach a toggle bar to each of the rings. Using two jump rings on each side is important to give the toggle clasp enough room to work properly.
