Sequoia Bracelet

PROJECT B2256
Designer: Kat Silvia
Skill Level: Intermediate
This bracelet features a focal loom piece made using the Beadalon Baby Jewel Loom. This smaller loom allows you to make focal pieces like this one without wasting any thread in the process.
Instructions
This bracelet measures approximately 7 inches. To modify the length, simply adjust the length of chain on both sides respectively.
  1. To begin, please watch our video: How to Use the Baby Jewel Loom. In this video you see how to string the Baby Jewel Loom and start a few rows. If you are unfamiliar with the regular Jewel Loom you can see that full video here.
  2. As seen in the video, string your loom so that you have 16 warp threads. There are 15 columns to this pattern.
  3. Begin the loom by threading a needle with about 6 feet of thread. Pick up 15 green beads for your first row. Thread them onto the loom as seen in the video. Then continue by following the pattern.
  4. Once you complete the pattern, please watch our video: How to Finish Off Traditional Loom Work and Add a Slider Clasp. Tie off and weave in your threads. Cut off the piece from the loom and tie off the cords as seen in the video. Add a dab of Hypo Cement to the knots. Trim any excess cord. Add a dab of glue into the well of the slider clasp and slide the loom piece into the clasp. With your chain nose pliers bend the end cap to cover the slider. Move to the other side of the loom and repeat this process.
  5. Take the length of chain and measure 2.25 inches. Take your pliers and open the link same as you would a jump ring. Make two even lengths of chain in this same manner.
  6. Open one jump ring and attach it to one length of chain and to one loop of the slide end. Close the jump ring. Move to the other end of this chain and attach another jump ring. Repeat this step to attach the second length of chain to the other side. On to the end of this length attach a lobster clasp with the final jump ring.
