The Waldorf Bracelet

PROJECT B770
Designer: Julie Bean
Skill Level: Intermediate
This elegant bracelet features an Art Deco themed pattern done in a fresh green, pink, and gold color palette. The finishing touch is an Elegant Elements beadslide clasp.
Instructions
Please note you will also want a scrap piece of wire or toothpick to apply your glue.To make this bracelet, you will be watching a series of videos. You will also be following the loom pattern that goes with the project.
  1. Thread 8 feet of nymo thread onto you loom needle.
  2. To begin, please watch the video: How to Use the Jewel Loom Beading Loom. From what you learn in this video, please thread your loom with 15 warp threads so that you can create a beaded piece that is 14 beads wide.
  3. Following what you learned in the video and your pattern, do the beadwork on your loom. When you get to within 15 inches of thread, please watch the video: How to Tie Off and Add More Thread in Loom Work. You will need to add another length of thread, again make it around 8 feet long. Add your thread and continue beading. When you are all done, tie your weft threads off and work in their tales.
  4. To finish off your beadwork and remove it from the loom, please watch the video: How to Finish Off Traditional Loom Work and Add a Slider Clasp.
  5. Finally, please watch: How to Add a Beadslide Clasp to Loom Work. This video will show you how to add the clasp.
  6. If at any time during this project you get confused, there is also a video titled: How to Make the Beaded Loom Bracelet Kits by Beadaholique that will show you all the steps in one video. The only difference is that you will be using a different clasp, but still the same general type of clasp (a slide).
