Project and Sample by Kate Richbourg

This project began as a simple loomed bracelet using Shadows and Half Tilas. Kate loved the result but thought enhancing it with 5mm Strap Leather would only make it better! This cuff has a western vibe that makes it a perfect accessory for any urban or country cowgirl.

To learn the techniques used in this project, click on the triangular video play button above to watch the video on warping and weaving on the Jewel Loom and see our YouTube video on Tricks to Looming and Bead Weaving for additional tips and techniques. You can also watch our Facebook LIVE broadcast on our YouTube Channel on working with the Jewel Loom and tips on measuring, finishing and gluing a loomed project into a clasp.

The loomed section of this project is three rows across. Use the Fine C-Lon for warp, and the Micro C-Lon for weft. Since Half Tilas have two holes you will want to treat them like two separate beads: string on as many Half Tilas as you need to complete the row, push into place in from underneath the warp threads and pass the needle back on top to lock the beads in place. Repeat with the second hole: push the beads down, so the holes are below the warp and thread the needle through. Push the beads up from underneath and pass the needle back through the holes on top to lock the threads in place. The loomed section is finished and glued in the clasp like our Tapestry project. Consult page 8 of the Tapestry PDF Project Handout for instructions.

The finished length of the loomed section is 6¾” including the woven ends inside the clasp. The finished length including the clasp is 7¼”.  The original brass slider beads used on the leather are no longer available, so we have substituted Home Run beads for a similar look.
