Weave a Toho bead bracelet

How to instructions

  • 1

    Use a cow hitch knot to secure 4 pieces of beading thread around the flat peg on the beading loom. Fold each thread in half. Place the thread loop under the peg, pull the ends through the loop and tighten. Remember: the thread must be longer than the length you want your finished bracelet to be.

  • 2

    Distribute the 8 threads into the scores on the loom. Carry the threads firmly to the opposite side of the loom and divide them into two bundles; secure these to the holes with the knobs.

  • 3

    Tie a piece of thread to one of the outermost warp threads. Weave the beading thread up and down between the warp threads with a beading needle. Complete a few rounds back and forth in this fashion, with no beads.

  • 4

    String 7 beads onto the beading thread and carry it under the warp threads. Then take the needle back around the outermost warp thread and back to the other side, through the beads. Continue adding beads and securing them around the outermost warp threads this way, until you are happy with the length of the bracelet.

  • 5

    Weave the beading thread up and down between the warp threads a few times, without beads, and secure with a knot before trimming the threads. Secure the threads with some glue and cut the warp.

  • 6

    Attach clips to the ends of the bracelet with flat jewellery pliers and some glue. Last, secure a clasp to the clips.

Weave your own unique beaded jewellery with a beading loom! We've made a gorgeous bracelet with Toho glass beads, but you can also use rocaille beads, which are rounder in shape. Small, lovely Japanese Toho beads are cylindrical and extremely high quality. The finished result will be flat and even. You can also try making spectacular Toho bead earrings to match your beaded bracelet!
