Instructions

Measure your wrist before you begin. You will want this cuff style bracelet to fit snugly, only about 1/2" longer than your wrist measurement. Keep in mind that the strand reducers and clasp will add just a bit over 1 1/4".
  1. Before you begin, watch the instructional videos: How to Use a Bead Loom and How to Finish and Back Loom Weaving.
  2. Thread your beading loom with white NYMO beading thread, putting 24 strands across the loom.
  3. Weave your bracelet using Miyuki Delica seed beads size 10/0 in matte rainbow mix. Just grab the colors randomly, I didn't follow a pattern.
  4. Continue to weave until your beadwork measures the desired length of your finished bracelet minus 1 1/4" for the clasp.
  5. Tie off and weave in all working thread ends.
  6. Remove your weaving from the loom. Tie off your warp threads into overhand knots in pairs as demonstrated in the finishing video.
  7. Use your beadwork as a guide to cut a piece of blue ultra suede the same size and shape.
  8. Sew your beadwork onto the ultra suede backing as demonstrated in the finishing video.
  9. Sew a sterling silver 5 strand reducer onto the end of your bracelet, with the loops on the ultra suede side of the piece. Make sure you bring your needle through the beads as you move across the edge to keep your thread hidden. Repeat with a second strand reducer on the other end of the bracelet.
  10. Use a sterling silver 4mm, 21 gauge jump ring to hang one side of a sterling silver sleek wrap toggle clasp from one of the strand reducers. Use a second jump ring to hang the other side of the clasp from the other strand reducer.
