guys so without further Ado let's talk about this week's project this week's project is a very good beginner project
um I'm kind of going back to the Grassroots of what we all started with I know that we've been having some new
folks uh joining the uh group lately I've been seeing them you know trying
out the loom doing you know some different things which is absolutely fantastic
um I love to see that I love to see folks um just going for it and that's
fantastic so I thought this week we're gonna go ahead to
sorry um this week we're going to go ahead and go back to our Grassroots like I said and we're going to make a basic bracelet
we're going to use some six millimeter fire polish and some six millimeter tiles and just do a basic project on our
original Loom I will show Some Loops just some simple Loops things like that
and hopefully for the newbies this gives you an a good idea of the steps that you
need to do to um use the loom and enjoy the loom and
for the old folks that's not old folks excuse me girls the folks that are Pros let's use that
for the folks that are pros and have been with us from the beginning and this is just a refresher course so let me
turn my camera down guys and we're gonna get started
and you know we're gonna get black for just a moment but I haven't gone anywhere I'm still here
okay whoops and I have a new camera set up in case you couldn't see um earlier
it was showing there a bit in the shot so um it's more overhead and you're seeing
everything from my Angle now which I thought would be a little more beneficial but here is our bracelet
that we're going to do this week and this can just this is a a bit of a
statement I think because this is a very simple bracelet but look at the impact
it has because of the beads that we've used in it so that's something to keep
in mind if you are doing a simple project you want it to look a little more
um difficult or raised not difficult but
um kind of make it a little bit more elevated use some pretty beads and
some abs and just different colors and textures with it okay this is before we
put the loops on I want to try something this week and when we get to the loops I'll tell you about it uh let's go over
what we're going to be using tonight of course we have our original jewel loom here with our bar
um we have some as I said some six millimeter fire polish and if that was a
look at that Under The Lights guys that just makes my heart sing Oh My Gosh and
then I just have some six millimeter tiles and some different colors and textures
um my mix is actually here that I'm going to be dipping into the bracelet so I'm going to slide this on over so you
can see it a little bit and it has a lot of
um different colors of Grays in there there's just like a silver there's the
opaque silver there's the Mac you know it has a matte texture to it or finish
not texture boy words are words are hard um
so anyway guys so I have just taken some of my strands I've cut them apart isn't it pretty long a sparkle I love it I
love it but we're gonna need to start with um warping our Loom we are going to use
uh some 11 O's today um and we're going to put them on the end so we can go ahead and do a
um what you call class beside a slide end on our piece okay so what
we're going to do first and I'm gonna wear my other slide end went oh there it is okay just want to make sure I have
everything I need so what we're going to do first is we're going to warp our Loom and I am using the 0.5
um hemp I think I'm actually gonna go off my roll just to make sure I have enough but 0.5 hemp in this gorgeous
blue color the reason that I'm doing the 0.5 is because I'm going to turn this
out the light down maybe that'll help guys um is because that way we can do our single
knots at the end and then slide on our clasp um so that'll be for that so first we're
going to start by putting our bar in and what I do is I just hook it down into the bottom of my loom just like so and
remember I'm down here I know you know that because my hands are going that way but just in case and I'm just going to
take this piece right here and just put it into my belly just a little bit and I know you can't see that but I am doing
it I'm put I put that against my belly and I'm just going to give the loom just
a little Flex and pop that bar in okay so now our Loom
is bowed okay so this is good we want this to be like this so we're going to
turn this over apparently my dogs are having fun downstairs
can you use aslon or other cord absolutely Anisa absolutely
yep anything that is cording nine times out of ten you can use it on
the loom in one way or another so I'm just tying this hemp here
onto one of our knobs underneath okay and I'm going to flip this over but I'm
going to take the end that I tied onto and I'm going to lay it or move that up
to the top and then I'm going to lay in my hemp into a Groove
okay and I'm just gonna keep that taut as I'm pulling that down and lay it into
relatively the same Groove down there at the bottom I'm going to wrap around the
knob underneath keeping tension with my thumb wrapping it up and around I'm
going to skip four grooves for this one guys for the six millimeter beads that
seem to work best so we want to put it in there double check my grooves because my
eyes cross sometimes but there's one two three and four and we're just going to keep that tension on there
and moving on down and we're gonna go one two three and four
there and we're going to do the other knob underneath we're going to catch that keeping tension
up and around skip four
okay and we're going to keep that tension as we go across
and lay that in for grooves wide and catch our other knob
okay and then we're just going to bring that up over the top skipping four grooves one two three four
and pulling that on over to that other side so we're going to skip our four
grooves here okay oops one extra and then we're gonna wrap this around
the knob on the back the hemp a few times
I like to do that because then I know that I have a pretty good grip on
the loom itself and then I'm going to take this cord and trim it
from the spool and you want to leave yourself enough because you want to be able to
tie a couple knots so I'm going to slide my um end of my hemp and underneath the
warps there and then I'm just gonna tie a knot
and I'm keeping tension the whole time there and we're gonna pull down oh on that
knot and you can see there my circle I my knot caught too soon
so what I'm going to do here is I'm just going to try to tighten this up just by tying those two
together hey you know things happen like this to us
so let's just tighten that down make sure that our our our
warps aren't going to be a sacrificed because of it so I'm just going to do this
keep that around the knob and tie that you could of course try to
take the knot out and redo your but I think we're going to be okay redo your warps but I think by doing that we're
going to be okay so I'm just tying that again
just making sure everything's nice and snug so we're pretty good there
so then you want to do opposite of what we did before we're going to take the bar out so I'm going to do the same
thing and press that into my stomach and flex the uh Loom just slightly up it's
flexible not bendable guys you've heard me say that 100 times I'm going to pop that Rod up and out and then pull it out
of the back and now you're ready to go now we have a really nice taut
warp and that's what you want that gives you the best finished product
okay so I'm going to cut that so that doesn't distract anyone or myself which is more
than likely and I did thread my um needle I'm using the wildfire in the
0.006 whoops I'm used to turning it for you guys there we go
there we go and now what I'm going to do is I'm going to take the end of my Wildfire that doesn't have the needle
I'm just going to tie on to the outside of my warps the furthest left warp I
um Loom from the bottom up a lot of people do from the top down it's your
preference whenever's comfortable for you okay so I'm just putting a couple knots in
that the first thing we need to do is put on some seed beads because we're going to
need that for our slide clasp here uh Vicki has a tip I always have blue
painters tape close by to really stick it down because I'm a flipper okay
that makes sense so what we're going to do is start with nine seed beads I'll move these over so
you can see those
okay and we're just going to pick up nine eleven O's the this color is a
transparent rainbow black diamond it is gorgeous and one of my favorites so pick up nine eleven O's
okay three
six and nine I think we're good there just
double check yes and we're gonna drop those beads down as we always do
and then I'm going to shuttle my needle across underneath and as I'm doing that
I'm going to hold on to my thread this is my technique this is what I've developed to be the most comfortable for
me okay and as those beads come up I'm kind of going to let go of that and then take
my hand up underneath and divide the beads up so I have three beads per row
okay so there's one two three six and nine so
now that I have those divided I'm going to hold these with my left hand pushing those beads up
uh Anissa no there's not a kit but all of the items can be found in the
description they'll take you right to and you can find beads just like these
I don't have the exact things listed you go right to say the fire polish but
um these are you know the colors I'm using you can see are in the royal blue
family silver gray black you know make your own you know combination that you
really like you know so we're gonna go up and over through the beads over top of the warps
and we're gonna put our needle through there and just
pull that needle out the other side and then we have our first row which is
our 11s okay easy peasy so what I like to do is
go through this a second time and I go underneath the warps
and the reason is is I like this to be very solid because this is going to be our row that our bracelet is hooked to
the clasp will be hooked to so I like to reinforce it a few times you could even
go through three times if you wanted to um but I just go underneath and catch my
beads I'm slightly pushing down on my beads a little bit just to make sure that my needle goes through them
and we're out the other side
and let me just go back across
okay now I'm just gonna pick up my first row bead so I'm going to pick up three six millimeter fire polish
and drop those down
and shuttle the needle across underneath
and push our fire polish up and then we're going to go through
up and over through the fire polish through the beads and over the warps
that's what we like to say make sure you're going through the beads but over the warps
because if you don't go over the works the beads will become loose or they will
fall out certain beads will fall out if you don't catch your um
needle through all of them so we don't want that so this is a basic guys I'm just doing
every other row with our fire polish and our
tile beads I'm just going to pick up three of these beautiful silver tile beads
and create your own pattern create your own bracelet that that sings to your soul
um like I said you don't even have to use these colors but I do like the combination of the blue and the blacks
the Grays and the silver and then we're just gonna I caught in
that second hole of those towels I didn't talk about that I apologize so all of my tiles you can see are dangling
here the front hole is open the back hole has our thread through it
you want to make sure you always do that because you want to go through the same hole and you want it to be either the
back or the front if you're going up or coming down and
it will be um okay for you to go ahead and run your
needle crust and get that hooked in there what size beanie needle do you use when
the seed beads are really tiny the Dual Loom needle sometimes too big for
several passes yes that is true
um I actually use a 10 or an 11. if they're really tiny
I'll use a 12. but uh oh Robin you're fine thank you
for joining us we're glad you could be here those are usually the ones I go for depending on how tiny
and I I'm not one to use like a 15 honestly guys I I've never done it and I
really don't have the urge to do it so as I am
uh getting ready to put my needle through the front of the towel beads you can see they're tipped down and through
there okay you can see that they're hinged so what we're going to do is I'm going to take my finger on my right hand there
and I'm just going to pull that up slightly so I can put my needle through all those holes you can turn your loom
sideways to see better um a lot of people do that I do that sometimes myself
so we're pulling that thread through
okay and we're gonna go
through the beads and over top of the warps
yeah as I said um like I said you probably 11 is a good a good size to be
the middle of the road for you Vicki for tiny seed beads um I think that would work just fine for
you and now I'm just gonna pick up three more fire polish
for here okay these are really cool they have the silver and blue I love them
and we're going to continue with the same pattern
thank you for putting that into the chat Amber I appreciate that
all right so we're going to push those up through the beads and over the warps
again okay
let's pick up some of these pretty matte black beads how about those
don't worry I'll get to the ab you know I will
so I'm just gonna pick those up again all on the same side in the same hole
okay remember the same thing as we were earlier we have the back the needle through the back hole and
the front is kind of dangling whoops wild in here sometimes
so once I drop those down welcome Lisa you're not late you're never late
what thread did you use for the warp I used 0.005
um hemp actually
you could use whatever you like
and then we're gonna tip those up and I'm gonna go through that back hole I'm going to go through the beads and over
the warps foreign
hi Jackie I didn't see you come in welcome in
and then we're going to do the same thing we're going to tip the beads there
with our finger we're going to support them with that that uh
finger on whatever finger you're comfortable with on your right hand and we're going through the hole underneath
the warps you can see that okay I'm pulling that across
all right and then we're just gonna go up and over the warps and through the beads there
and we'll just continue this
so I'll pick up about a couple of our beautiful black AB beads
well maybe not because we're right there with the black I don't think I want to put it right against that because it
won't pop as much so let's pick up a couple of this other
one that has a really cool almost Picasso finish on it but in maybe like a
little lighter of a shade but they do definitely look Picasso to me
this is when I flip it because my left hand is stupid
you crack me up so we're just gonna push those up and in
and the needle through
okay and I'm going to look for some of these really pretty a b tile beads now grab a
couple of those I want three of those
okay Jackie has a question supplies are non-existent on the island I usually
travel to the US or back to Canada to buy stuff I have a ton of Steel on and some hemp
can you use sealant warp absolutely 100 you can Jackie
that would work just fine for you okay
some great questions tonight guys okay so we're tipping down here
and I'm gonna grab those beads and just tip them up slightly and put my needle through
thank you
okay the the the warping materials you kind of want to
stay away from are anything that has like give in it you know like a quite
you know quite a bit of give and if they they do have give say for instance leather has some give and it'll stretch
out um you can always leave your bar in your original Loom or you can just use your
wisdom Warrior or uh one of those looms to to make the same thing because this
and the wisdom Warrior are equivalent except for um this one has the bar and the wisdom
Warrior doesn't but just because it doesn't have the bar doesn't make it less than this because it's just as good
if not better okay I love them all I love the modules you know I do but I'm just saying you know that gives you an
idea on you know how to to use the Looms you have you know
so we're going to lock those in or want to get it's always fun to buy a
new loom you know so those are those gorgeous a b beads in
there oh my God notes okay now we're gonna go to our black because I think
they're gonna pop off of that ABB better okay
oh Jackie that sounds great a beach day and looming tomorrow that sounds fantastic
and then we'll do some of these
shiny gray ones they're really pretty too
and we're just gonna keep working up
through the holes
gotta catch that last hole and give me turkey sometimes especially if you're looking down on it
so let's go back to our see we've used each one so let's go back to our really
pretty royal blue
okay and then we'll go to our silver again
and I'm just going to repeat this pattern guys it's just a simple
repeating pattern that we're doing here but you know you can Jazz it up any way you'd like
I think this would be really pretty for Hanukkah or even New Year's with the pop
of silver in it and the ab beads
oh Brady
all right guys so I think you've got this down if you don't you can always go back and watch the replay and see how we
put this pattern in pretty simple pretty straightforward okay so I'm going to set this to the
side and here is the one that I have done not done but as far as the pattern is on
the um the one we just did this one has the full length of what I need I needed
six inches I always make my bead apart six inches because I was seven inch wrist so that gives me that inch on
either side four um my clasp and I just when I ended guys I
did [Music] um yes a row of bugle beads would be
interested is interesting in this project as well Vicki I agree um I just did the nine seed beads across
on this one on the ends both ends have it you just do the exact same thing when you come to
the end of whatever length you need yes through the magic of the internet
um you put you know your 9 11 0's 9 11 0's because
we do need those so what I think I'm gonna do here guys is I think I'm gonna
play with an idea for loops normally we would do our Loops the whole
way and do our loops on or on the top um I'm thinking I wonder what it would
look like if we just did loops on our tile beads
and kind of it would be like every other row so I'm thinking let's try it why not
thank you Mary thank you so I'm just gonna thread it another needle here guys I'm just going to take
about um a wingspan for the loops usually when I'm beading a
bracelet I take about um a wingspan and a half to two Wing
spans to make the base of a bracelet
yeah it did come out really nice I was really pleased with the colors and The
Bling and all that stuff you can't go wrong with fire polish and tile beads really
so just bear with me here as I thread another needle
so I don't know how this is gonna look I hope it'll be cute but you know let's
just explore and do some fun stuff huh
think outside the box a little bit so I just threaded my needle there and what
I'm going to do here is I'm going to take my needle and go through
this first row of fire polish if I can get my needle in
the hole there there we go through that first row of fire polish and I haven't tied onto anything yet
okay and I'm just going to pull that through so later I can weave that back in I'm
going to leave a little bit of a towel there you know just enough so I can make sure
and weave that back in so we can't see that because this not the knots on these
ends will be covered with our slide clasp okay so then we're just going to go into the
first row of that tile bead and work our needle across and that's one of the reasons I really love jewel
loom needles because you can see as I'm rocking it there I mean you can't go too crazy with it but it'll allow you to
kind of work your needle across through the bead holes okay
and I think maybe we'll pick up six seed beads
11 0's
six okay
I'll thank you Anisa and then I'm gonna go through the next set of holes on our
tile weeds okay if you want to guys you could do it on either side
on both sides I mean um certainly
but I think we're just going to do the one side for now but you could work
you know both sides as you're going so I'm going to go ahead and go back
through go through not back through this next row of fire polish
and we're just going to repeat this as we move up the bracelet
so here I'm going to be going in through the bottom row choke down on my needle a
little bit that'll help me have a little bit more control and then work my needle across
because we need to get it to a place where we can put our beads in on the
side we want just in those two holes of that um
towel bead okay all right
and then back through the dot pole so what this is going to enable us to do then we're coming out that hole the top
hole and we're going to put on six seed beads at that point
to make our little Loop you can certainly make whatever size that you like guys whoops I hit my mouse here we
don't want to do that do that so we're going to pick up six more
and work our way up
okay and then through that bottom hole again
all right there we go there's another loop
I don't know we'll just have to see how it turns out guys but back through those fire polish
okay Challenge on experiment with the design it might look
nice I cannot work with bugle beads why why do you seem to have trouble with
bugle beads Anisa
um while Roberta asks is Wildfire the best choice for beating wire or can you use
anything else Wildfire is the best choice for your stitching this is your
Wildfire fire fire and its thread and it works I like it I think it's the
best thing to weave your projects with as far as beading wire if you are
specifically asking for beating wire I really like soft Flex or if you
um are talking about regular wire that you know you work with
I would recommend uh the beadalon German style wire so that kind of covers all
the bases I hope and answers your question
okay so we're just gonna go back through that
whoops back through that those tile beads
and around yeah I think it's cute I mean it's not
it's not over the top which is out of my character but you know for just a simple
look sure just hard to find patterns that I can
understand oh well you know we're always here to
answer questions for you Anisa don't hesitate to reach out in a group and we would be happy to help you
four five and six and if you have not
um joined the a jewel loom group yet is jewelry making with jewel
loom you definitely want to do that it's a great place to ask questions to post
your finished pieces um it's just a great group of people in there so if you haven't done that make
sure you do and then I'm just going to go back through and
through the fire polish and we'll continue working on this for a few more minutes for a little bit
just to make sure everybody has the groove of it okay
and if you missed it guys I'm for next week I'm going to do a fun project on
the Booboo Loom if you have not seen that yet you do need to check it out it's Jules
newest Loom and it is absolutely adorable and I think it's going to be really fun
to do some great projects on okay so Roberta says sorry poor choice
of words I guess like I have some stretchy cord that I have no idea who made as well as some soft Flex eating
water not thinking of using 26 or 28 gauge wire
um see here
I would say so if you're looking for
um like I said if you're looking for something to sew in your beads Wildfire
if you're looking for something to string your beads on you know
um and then you said you have some soft flecks but you know just like that is what I
would use and you know the wire so I hope that answered what I said but it's
a little confusing for me because you know words are hard for me it's not you my dear I'm sure but I'll look at that
question again afterward or maybe Amber can um
uh answer if she understands better okay so I'm picking up six more
Roberta oh good I'm glad I'm glad because that
worries me when people people don't understand or I'm not being clear enough is usually what the problem is
um so Robin asks what thread or wire are you using I got here late
um as far as the base of this project I use .05 hemp and for my
stitching of my beads I'm using black wildfire 0.006
okay I'm just gonna try to fin angle this through because it can get a little tight in
there when you're running through your beads multiple times you like the edges in these sub
yeah hey live a little right
has anyone have a chance to check out the new Booboo Loom
I've just started playing with it I've had it for a little while but um I think I'm gonna enjoy it
all right and back through
one two three four [Music]
five and six thank you Robin
hey you know some people don't like over the top this would be something just
simple but elegant you know
I've never done it where I've skipped and I wasn't sure if it would look weird but I think it's gonna be okay
and that would give you an opportunity to put something else in in the middle sorry I was off the screen
there in the middle here I don't know what but I'm sure all of your brains could figure
something fun out to do there
okay let's do one more Loop and then I'm
gonna show you how to remove this off the loom and put your tire knots and put
your ends on oh Don I don't ever say you're sorry for
being late no one has to I mean we're here we're here and this will always be
in replay and you can always reach us in the group if you have any questions or place them
in the live chat and we will get them afterward no problem
okay two three
six and thank you everyone for sharing out the live for us tonight as I said we are
journalists tonight so um I appreciate the extra help for sure
okay if you have not subscribed to subscribe to julum YouTube channel that
is where all of these um we they live basically and they'll be on Facebook but eventually you know
they'll move down and it'll be harder to find but the jewel loom YouTube channel
has every week's um lives on there too guys so make sure
you're subscribed over there okay and I think that's where we're gonna
call it for now I'm just gonna do
a knot here so then I can go back at a later time if I want to continue putting
my Loops in so actually I took my needle off but I don't want to do that I want to keep my needle on because I'm going
to weave back through my thread
so it's more in the middle so I'm going to go in to I'm in this row
here let me do my Loop and then we can move into that fire polish let's do it that'll be a little easier on me
okay let's just do that one
and then drop back through and then we're going to go right into that fire polish like we did before
but I'm only going to go through the first bead and I'm going to angle my needle up
just like so if you can see that I know it's hard to see but I'm angling
it up and out of that bead there that first fire polish and then I'm simply
just going to tie a couple knots on this warp between the first and the second
bead I'm just going to go underneath with my needle and through the loop
make sure I'm doing the right way and then pull
and I'm going to tighten that down there and then I'm going to do one more knot
and see the same thing is trying to happen like it did when we first started our project where the knots catch sooner than you
like there we go I got it and so I'm just going to send my needle down underneath
again and then I'm just going to give that a little tug I'm going to pull it right between those beads and just give
a little tug so that knot now will drop to the bottom
okay and then I'm going to do the same thing with this other thread that we started
to do our Loops okay
and guys I do want to let you know um starting in our first live in January
we are actually going to start changing our time that we go live we are going to
start going live at 3 P.M Eastern every Thursday
I hope that still works out for everyone I hope so anyway um we're going to give it a try
and see how it goes so let me know what your thoughts are on that
and I will keep uh let it keep reminding you and I will also make sure I put
posts in the group and things like that but we're going to go ahead and try an earlier time
no reason other than um just to kind of do it during the day
because it's usually um seven o'clock it's seven o'clock here Eastern whenever I do it and I don't
finish up till after eight and then by the time it's like 8 30. so we're gonna give it a go
so first we get loopy then we get naughty Santa Paws is gonna make note of
that okay guys so we weaved our threads back in now what we have to do is take our
project off the loom and I have this end into my belly again and I'm just going
to give it a slight Bend actually I'm going to cut it on this end
because these are the ones we tied off my Loops I may just pull back in okay after Danielle has showed us that
trick and then I'm just gonna cut my Loops I'm supporting my work under here like this and I'm supporting my
loom with my thumb and my index finger I know it's hard to see because the angle but and then I'm just going to pull that
off and the reason I didn't cut it on the side with the loops is what I was saying
is um Danielle opened our eyes up one day and said
um you know you can try pulling the loops down into the work you just have to be very
careful um just making sure you're supporting your work as you're doing it I'm just going to grab I know it's hard to see
I'm just gonna grab one of these threads here and see if this is the one that I need to be pulling let me try the other
one yeah so one will come easily and one will kind of be more stiff but as I'm
doing this guys I'm going slow and meticulous I'm pulling but I'm keeping all of my work supported
and just pulling that Loop you can see how it's coming down there and it's going to go against
that way you only have knots that you have to deal with on one end
how do I dispose of my needles you're talking to the wrong lady
if you would see the amount of bent out of Crazy Needles that I have in my stash
I the only time I've ever thrown one away is if they break which and usually what
my husband has me do is poke it into like cardboard or something like that so
that it's less likely to harm somebody so it usually just kind of put it through the cardboard or if you have
styrofoam or something like that that way then you know there's less chance of somebody hurting themselves on it
plastic container with blue tape there you go there's a good one
so we're just going to pull this thread supporting our work I'm going to
try this one it might be easier yes it is and I'm just slowly doing this
pulling these down this is the best trick in the world I just love this but
just be very careful I'm keeping a good bit of pressure down on my work and I'm moving slowly and
meticulously okay so now that those are pulled down I want
to make sure they're snug in there and but not too tight because I don't
want to um work my work
so let me just make sure everybody's good looks like everybody's good that everyone stayed straight
it is a great idea I can't take credit for it though that was Miss Danielle so I'm gonna do now guys is just tie
some single knots here on the end and I've shown you this before but we're
gonna do like I said we're doing a refresher this week this is something I found by using the
0.5 hemp if I did the single knot and made sure it was really a snug knot and
made sure that it was glued thoroughly it would work for me to put a slide
clasp over top of it Jody Jody says your tips are awesome I'm
writing them down so I can remember them well thank you and Jody I appreciate that I think you all need
to go talk to my husband tell him how smart I am right
he just gives me a hard time you know typical guy there we go get that one done
okay and I'm just making sure I'm working that knot down because I want it to be as tight up
against those 11 O's as I can get that gives it a better chance of being
able to weave back through to my um weave back through my uh side slide
clasp my slide connector I mean I always call them a class but they're not they're connectors
and I'm just working my way over
I'm pushing that down okay
I'm going to move that one hand so you can see a little bit more what I'm doing and I'm just pushing my two fingers down
and pulling the thread with these two fingers to make sure my fingernails are
above the knot just so I can make sure and pull it as close to those 11s as possible guys
like I said all right
again you're going to be careful with this you don't want to warp anything
ah oh Mary we're thrilled you're here
thanks for joining us
all right we're on our last night here and I need to grab myself
a little paper towel and move my beanie mat because me and
GS hypo have a um not difficult relationship but just
special relationship where I always end up getting it all
over everything let me grab a paper towel in your face
and again I want to check these ends again before I finally glue everything and make sure I have everything where I
want it
yeah Vaughn you're right um I do it doesn't work for every loom project but like you said most of them
the uh pulling the loops and and that it it works
um with most of them though
so I'm just worming this GS hypo up on my hand and it's getting a small bead on it and
I'm just going to make sure that I am covering that knot pretty darn good with
this glue and then just going to move on to the
next and do the same thing
so I've got those pretty well covered and this is a good tip guys keep
your tip of your GS hypo right next to the paper towel as you're trying to put
the end into it because you know how the Globs always come out and you can't get the tip up in it if you keep it against
the paper towel the paper towel will absorb the Globs and you can then easily get the top on
without um gluing your lid shut
and Vicky makes a good point she says that the loop technique did not work
with the suede lace that she used so FYI on that guys
for you know a few minutes home that's what you would do but today
you know we're live so we're gonna cut the knots or not the knots excuse me the thread
above the nods guys and then just trim that
it's like so and I'm going to go over to the other side I'm going to move this paper towel
so we can see better here foreign
connectors this is a 20 millimeter so that will work on the project that we
just did and a lot of times guys I will take my pliers where's my um
chain nose here there I'll get my tweezer pliers and I'll take my pliers and I'm sure a lot of you do this use
season pros and I'll just stick that up in there and just try to kind of open
the end up a little bit because it makes it a little easier to maneuver and once you get it on then
it's no problem but you kind of just start putting your seed beads in your
knots into your connector and just I rock it back and forth and it seems to
really work to get the um connector to go over top of everything
and then once you get to the end we're gonna pull that and this is all
done gently guys don't be aggressive with your beautiful work because you don't want to end up
messing it up right at this point or ever really but especially at the end
when you're finishing and I'm just going to take my pliers here and that last knot I'm just going to take the tip of
my pliers and kind of just start it down into the end there
I want to pop in my last seed bead
okay push that through and again I'm just going to take this and push this knot
down in there a little bit
like so and then we're just going to close the end up you have a finished end there
and we're going to do the same thing over here with our loops
and just open that end up
a little bit too much there
there we go that's better
and we're just going to slide that on that one goes on much easier because you don't have the knots to deal with so
it'll slide right across for you
and then just close that end
and there we go all you have to do is add your clasp and you have a finished
piece this one is not quite finished because I didn't put my loops on yet but
you get the meaning but that is our beautiful piece I hope that helped you with a
little bit of a refresher for everyone and also for any newbies out there kind
of gives you basic jewel 101 let me get my camera turned around here
yes Roberta um you need to use a bigger Loom to make that area or to make it longer
the um large wisdom Warrior is the the way
to go with that you can make pretty much anything under the sun on that one
and here I go I'm gonna actually turn my camera here guys
so there we go so I hope you enjoyed that refresher
thank you Rose rose says beautiful as always thank you I don't know what I do
without you guys you're always here to support me I appreciate it so much Vicki says great demo as usual Juan says
beautiful Trisha thanks for the refresher thank you thank you all for being here with us
um there would be no jewel loom without you all so we love and appreciate all of
you and we love when you come and join us on our lives it's a blast
so like I said guys next week I'm gonna do a fun project on the Booboo Loom so
stay tuned for that if you are looking for any of the product products
they are always in the link in the description um and I think that's about it I hope you
enjoyed it what was the approximate length of that I make my bracelets six
inches and then I can account for a clasp
and I have a seven inch wrist okay so you could actually and I've seen this
before I sign off here guys I've seen folks take these and use them as the middle of necklaces and maybe a choker
or something and hook on chain or hook on sorry silk and then just put a focal
on this piece you could do up to um I believe seven or eight inches on
the original Moon so you could do that that's an option
you know always options guys always options all right guys so I'm gonna sign
off for tonight I'm gonna go join the hubby and relax a little bit work on some more Christmas gifts I hope you all
are having a wonderful holiday season so far um tis the season let's all be kind and
I'll see you guys next week bye
