    Back to the Basics Series With the Original Jewel Loom Beading Loom - Making The Love cuff

    Let's get back to basics with the Original Jewel Loom beading loom! The Inventor and International Jewelry Designer Julianna "Jewels" Avelar takes us step by step on how to warp, bead weave, & finish a cuff.

    In the first part of this series, Jewels explains the proper way to insert the rod into the loom, plus all the different types of materials you can use for warps on the loom.

    In the second part of this series, Jewels explains how to warp the loom, plus tips & tricks to make warping easier & more successful.  She also uses gorgeous Red Fire Polish Beads in 3 different coatings to weave the bracelet - forming the popular Love Cuff! 

    In this next part, which is part 2A, Jewel finishes weaving the beads on the cuff.

    In the third part of this series, Jewels shows how to remove the Love Cuff from the Loom & how to finish the ends…then, Voila! A finished Love Cuff!!!
