I love how easy Julianna’s new Beadalon Jewel Loom™ is! You can use any color beads, make a pattern, have it random, change the length and width. Below I created a bracelet with a mix of green, yellow, crystal, and blue and strung them randomly.
1. Thread the Beadalon Jewel Loom with enough thread for 6 rows of beads. I used some beads from Beadalon to make a beautiful base for my bracelet.
2. Cut the thread from the back of the Jewel Loom, and thread through rectangle spacers through the holes and back again, then tie off in knots, until you can be certain it will stay in place. Dob each knot with jeweler’s grade glue. Let dry.
3. Thread the 3 flowers with yellow ribbon, and poke the ribbon through the bracelet at both ends, tie a knot on the back side, trim.
4. Using the needle that comes with the Jewel Loom, stitch the metal flowers to the top of the bracelet, making sure to pierce the ribbon on the underside so that it will stay in place.
5. Attach jump rings to the spacers through the middle hole, and attach toggle clasp (I used a cute mermaid toggle). USe 2 jump rings on the bar of the toggle.
TIP: When making your bracelet, know how long you need the whole piece to be by measuring your own wrist or simply measure another bracelet that you own to use as a guide. Then chunk out the portions of each piece (ex. 5 inches for loomed beads, 1 inch for toggle, .5 in for spacers, .25 inch for jump rings).
Have a wonderful weekend!
