Introduction: Bead Bracelet Update
I have already made an Instructables on this bracelet, but the pictures were blurry and unclear, so I have decided to update it. I hope you like this bracelet, so enjoy=)
Step 1: Gather Your Materials
For this bracelet, you will need...
•Look Pick or Crochet Needle
•S-Clip or C-Clip
Step 2: Starting It Off
To begin, take a single band and place as shown. Take another single band and place as shown. You will be using single bands during this whole bracelet.
Step 3: Go Down
Using single bands, go down on both sides of your loom, leaving the last peg on both sides alone.
Step 4: Closing It Off
Using single bands, close off the bracelet as shown.
Step 5: Down the Middle
Using any color of your choice, go down the center of your loom with single bands.
Step 6: Making Beads
For this step, you can either use loom bands or beads. To make a loom bead, wrap a single band around your hook four to five (4-5) times. Then slide that band onto a single band. Place on your loom as shown. If you would like to use beads, slide a single band through your bead and place as shown.
Step 7: Keep Making Beads
Make more beads of your choice and place as shown.
Step 8: Cap Band
Take a single band and wrap it around the last peg in the center once, creating two loops as shown.
Step 9: Begin Looming
To begin looming, go inside of your cap band and grab the top band, which will go forward. Then go inside again, grabbing the next band, which will go to your right. Go inside one last time, grabbing the last band that will go to your left.
Step 10: Down the Center
Loom down the center all the way to the top as shown.
Step 11: Loom the Left
Loom the left side of your loom as shown.
Step 12: Loom the Right
Loom the right side as shown.
Step 13: Closing It Off
Loom the top as shown.
Step 14: Adding an Extension
Leaving your bracelet the way as it is would be bad because it would cut off the blood circulation to your hand when worn, so you have to make an extension. To do this, go inside all of the bands shown, pulling a single band through them. Then pull a single band through that band as shown. Repeat this step until your bracelet can fit your wrist.
Step 15: S-Clip or C-Clip
Put your clip on your bracelet as shown.
Step 16: Fixing It Up
Pull your bracelet off your loom and take a look. The bracelet will look messy, put pull and push and tease and your bracelet will look better=)
Step 17: Connecting the Clip
Clip your clip to the end of your bracelet as shown.
Step 18: Wear and Enjoy!
Thank you so much for viewing! Hope you love your new bracelet and check out my other looming tutorials=)
