New Loom Bracelet and Beaded Toggle Clasp

By November 12, 2012

This week I have a new cuff bracelet pattern, inspired by Mirrix's No Warp Ends Bracelet. You can stitch it up on any bead loom, including an economical wire frame loom from a hobby store.

It's possible to try this pattern using square stitch instead, but I personally haven't tried it. It may be more difficult to stitch the long magatamas (the amber colored beads) with square stitch, and -- as always -- square stitch beadwork has a differerent look and feel than loomwork.

Also new this week is the tutorial for the big, chunky beaded toggle clasp I designed to finish my bracelet. It uses a wooden toothpick to support a peyote stitch toggle bar made with size 8/0 round seed beads. Magatamas adorn the bar ends, and the toggle latches with a simple beaded loop.
