A Jewel Loom Jewelicious Crystal Bracelet

By Hsimoni @wildwyoartcafe

The new Jewel Loom™ created by Julianna Hudgins and Beadalon is truly a magnificent new jewelry crafting tool!  It is so easy for beginners, but produces fabulous results for professionals as well. I created this Jewelicious Crystal Bracelet to share with you today.  It's the affinity band base created on the Jewel Loom™ and then crystal's were sewn and attached to the band.

I began by watching Julianna's Youtube Video on the Jewel Loom.  She does an excellent job of telling you all the details.  You can see hear that I have attached my thread to the grooves to create my warp threads.  I began by weaving back and forth in between my warp threads, and then sewing six beads in between each warp thread.

I continued this process until I had six rows of the gold beads, then I switched to create 6 rows of the clear beads.  This created a fun, but easy pattern for my affinity band bracelet.

You can really see the start of the pattern emerging here.  I used black thread as well to create more contrast.  One tip I would recommend is that you use high quality beads such as toho or your other favorite brand.  This will ensure that the beads are very close in size to create a more uniform look.

I just fell in love with how easy the new Jewel Loom is to use.  I could loom while I was watching tv, and it was so relaxing!

Here is my Jewel Loom Affinity Band all completed.  You can see I have 4 sections of the gold beads, and 3 of the clear beads.  I finished off each end and attached the loop and toggle clasps as Julianna shows in her Jewel Loom YouTube Video.

I picked out and sorted through various crystal beads I had, then sewed them together and attached them to my Affinity Bead Band.  I really liked how it turned out for my first Jewel Loom project.
