Far Out Bracelet Instructions
Designed by Cheri Carlson

With the Ricks beading loom, you can create psychedelic patterns within your jewelry. Cheri crated her own pattern full of mesmerizing swirls in groovy colors. You can see more of this bracelet and find more inspiration for creating loomed jewelry in this Artbeads Cafe episode.

Step one:
Follow the manufacturer's instructions on how to warp the Ricks beading loom. Watch this quick video tutorial to see how to set up the loom. This video may also be helpful when setting up the loom. Decide on your bracelet length and set the loom length for the number of rows needed. The bracelet is 25 beads/rows wide, so warp the loom for 25 rows. Make sure to leave a warp or weft tail long enough at the start of the bracelet so that after tying threads off you can use it to sew on the clasp.

Step two:
Follow the pattern in this PDF diagram when adding Miyuki Delica seed beads to the loom. Depending on how accurate you set the length of the loom or how tight you weave, your piece could come out a row or shorter longer. If you reach the end of your bracelet and still want to add a row or two to the pattern, see this Handy Tip. This technique will allow you to add rows to the beginning of the bracelet, too. If you want to make your bracelet a different size from ours, refer to the diagram and adjust accordingly. Please see our Handy Tip on how to add weft thread to the loom if you run short part of the way through your project.

Step three:
To add the silver-plated 30x10mm 5-ring magnetic tube clasp, center the clasp at one end of the bracelet with the two parts of the clasp together. Bring the tail of your thread or a new thread between the seed beads and in line with one of the end rings on the clasp. Bring your thread through the ring and then through the seed bead to the left of where your thread began. Loop your thread through the ring again and bring the thread back through the seed bead. Your thread should be back where you started it. Loop through the ring of the clasp and then go through the seed bead to the right. Loop through the ring and go back through the seed bead, back to the center where you started. Repeat this process to reinforce the thread on the ring. Repeat for all of the rings on the clasp. Repeat this step for the other side of the bracelet, with the clasp still together. Once you get one ring attached to the end of the bracelet, you can unclasp the bracelet for easier stitching.
