Slide Tube Handout  Looming Handout


Project Info:

Level: Intermediate

Estimated time: Weekend Project

Sample by Kate Richbourg

A color-study in two tones that shade into each other, the Illusion Cuff comes together as if by magic. Henning is a mix of Montana Blue Picasso and a Seafoam blue-green creating a mix with a denim vibe. There are no tricks in this design… 8/0 seed beads make it lightning-fast to complete and the result is a showstopper! We used the Jewel Loom for this project, but you can also use Sam’s method of using the design board as a loom. Pick your colors and follow along with our PDF pattern, end with a Loomed Bracelet Finishing Kit and presto! Your bracelet is complete.

This design uses two colors of 8/0 seed beads with beads leftover to use in another loomed project. Please see the Project Map below to acquaint yourself with the overall layout of the sample and consult the techniques below for the Illusion Cuff:

Watch the video on the Jewel Loom page for tips on warping the loom, or watch Sam’s video on using a design board as a loom in the video above.

Download the Project PDF for the pattern and project notes for Illusion Cuff.

To finish, download the PDF Handout for Holiday Cheer and review the steps for adding the slide tube to each end of the bracelet.

  • The finished cuff when worked in 8/0 beads measures 5 3/4”. You may adjust the size up to 8 1/2” using the extender chain in the Loomed Bracelet Finishing Kit.
  • Start with either of the two bead colors used in the project, as the pattern is mirrored and will make no difference in the finished result.
  • Watch the video on the Jewel Loom page for tips on warping the Jewel Loom, or watch Sam’s video on using a design board as a loom in our Tricks to Looming video.
