    Jewel Loom 101 Ginger & Joan Style

    Welcome to Ginger & Joan's first tutorial. We're taking a different approach to most jewelry making tutorials - Joan Dice is teaching Ginger Branch how to use the Jewel Loom & we want you to learn along! We're making a very easy bracelet for beginners. This 3 part tutorial is done Ginger & Joan style, with the friendly chatter & laughter.

    Part 1:  Joan is showing Ginger how to warp with hemp. The warping techniques are the same for any material you chose to use for the warps.

    Part 2:  Joan is showing Ginger how to weave with beads. Ginger is using large beads for a quicker project. But any size bead can be used, as long as the warps are spaced apart correctly for the beads.

    Part 3:  Joan is showing Ginger how to remove the bracelet from the loom & finish it. Joan also shows the bracelets she was working on as Ginger made hers.

    Transcript - Video 1:

    hi i'm ginger and this is joe
    i don't know i think you get a stroke
    okay you introduce us okay
    i'm just
    okay today we're doing something we've
    never done before we're doing a tutorial
    and we're going to be doing it with them
    on the jewel loom and we're going to try
    to be serious
    you know we can't stay serious all the
    time but you know we're we're going to
    teaching you and what we're going to be
    doing is i thought we're going to take a
    different direction from other tutorials
    i'm going to be teaching ginger on
    camera how to use this
    and i'm putting the um all the links to
    like how you can buy
    um jewel limb because you there's you
    know the original june room baby ulum
    and other jewel looms and this thing and
    this thing we'll show that another one
    when we get the beads off
    because i already got it loaded with
    show me show me okay so first of all we
    got to get our little buddha bellies or
    as um jules calls it her
    goddess bellies and we're gonna
    press one in into uh
    this or this okay here just and then um
    well put one end into the one of the
    holes okay yeah get the one by your body
    and then slightly bend it okay let you
    get in there
    slightly bend it
    and then put the other end in the other
    okay and this is to help you with your
    warps because um i mean you should
    strive for tight warps while you're
    putting it on here but sometimes when
    mine's just a little bit loose i know
    it's gonna tighten up when i take that
    rod out
    well i'm gonna chase it i tried this
    and i called joan and i said look at the
    back of mine i said it looks like a cat
    has been in the yarn barrel it was all
    over the place i had it
    all over the place and then i thought
    i'm gonna pull
    that's the other thing why what probably
    happened was when you get a new jewel
    loom sometimes you have to slightly bend
    one of the ends and you don't want to
    bend it too much just very slightly you
    know i just took it with my pliers
    because it can break can it jump
    this can break and i'll tell you more
    about that in a second but like just
    take your pliers and just slightly bend
    the angle just slightly just work on it
    opening that slightly bend the angle
    you know like right now i got it here
    that's perfect for me because i did it
    before the show and that way it'll you
    know until you get it where it it pops
    in and i can't see it
    well come on okay let me use my breasts
    and just slightly you then that way
    work on it so you can get it in and out
    easily they can see your cleavage well
    it's gonna show
    i can't help that
    she's jealous
    okay so then later on you're gonna be um
    you know taking it out after you warp
    so um
    she's got me laughing too much now
    the other thing you want to do is before
    you bend it if it's in a cool place like
    your house is cool like in the winter
    time or something
    before you bend it and put the warp in
    kind of warm it up with your hands
    because a lot of times cracking is done
    i mean this is
    i can't remember if they say flat
    flexible not bendable but any case you
    can't it's not made to bend really far
    just enough to get that um wire in
    what if you stuck it in a pot of boiling
    water that would do it no that would
    melt that that would work
    yeah and it's remember use your little
    goddess belly to help bend it you know
    so that way you're not bending it too
    much i've got a big gutted belly that's
    my second booty belly
    okay so now next we're going to do is
    warping it um and we're gonna today
    we're gonna use twine and leather would
    work do it just as well but just
    if you use leather
    take the rod out because if you get use
    a nice leather especially like leather
    cord usa
    it's gonna stretch out as you when you
    take the rod out and then you're gonna
    end up with a flat loom
    so leave that's the only time that i
    know of that you leave the rod in so
    where did you get this cord down
    don't you don't show the brand
    i got it out of my stash
    where did you get this chord john jewel
    sells these wonderful cords
    i just had this in my stash i thought
    we'd use
    some of this stuff i've had for years
    and she has a lot of different colors
    it's probably break when we start
    warping it anyway yeah
    yeah well
    i'm trying to make that yeah
    so what i usually do is i unwind a bunch
    you don't have to but it just makes it a
    little easier on me
    so go ahead and unwind the patch that
    way you don't have to do it while the
    image is a bunch
    okay so what we're doing is we're going
    to be making three um rows of beads our
    bracelet and so whenever uh the easiest
    way to know how many warps you want to
    make is take how many rows of beads you
    want plus one and that's how many warps
    you need
    because the beads have to go between the
    warps okay so since we're using three
    rows we're going be um
    we're gonna be making um four warps
    okay now what
    i'm sorry this is like take four and uh
    and it's raining here and ginger's
    arthritis is really getting to her so
    we're trying so i'm going to warp this
    for you so you can see what's going on
    and ginger will comment and ask
    questions okay
    so yeah don't go to the other room and
    start playing with your phone okay so
    you want to um
    closest to your body you want to tie a
    on this knobby whatever you want to call
    i would call it a little tit but that's
    i thought of that too but
    there's a little nipple yeah
    okay now um i just taped it out of the
    way because i don't like things hanging
    down when i'm working
    we need to make four warps and the way i
    came up with four warps is we're going
    to use three rows of beads and so just
    think of it
    the number of rows plus one equals the
    number of warps
    so we got you know three rows of beads
    plus one equals
    four warps
    so i'm just picking a groove to put it
    in you know
    don't worry about
    you know just make sure you have enough
    space for the four warps because there's
    going to be some space between here
    so you want to keep it tight
    and put it in here
    and then you're going to flip it over
    i'm going to eyeball this just a minute
    i'm trying to make sure i'm in the
    camera sorry
    okay now i'm going to flip it over again
    i'm going to put it around the knobby
    make sure you don't get on that um
    and we determined that the um when we
    were um
    are you on the wire you're on the wire
    yeah we determine there's seven space i
    don't want to go in the seventh space
    when i put the bead up to the um grooves
    one two three four five six seven
    and try to keep your warps tight
    one two three four five six seven
    and once you get used to this you could
    start eyeballing it
    and um
    you know i mean i i
    counted forever until i got used to
    seeing it and every time you put it
    around that knobby on the back i put it
    on the knobby each time so you can see
    how i'm warping it around them knobby
    so we're going a little bit slow here
    because like i said we're not used to
    showing things on camera
    joan is really a whole lot better
    showing this stuff than me i'm just kind
    of long for the ride
    but i do want to teach her so she can do
    things on her own and she you know she
    is learning because we have already done
    this like four or five times our very
    first video we didn't like the quality
    of it so we're redoing it
    so see now i got four warps
    i got four warps now yeah
    and um
    i bet you could play a guitar on that i
    could play you want to try it
    it does sound like a tune when you're
    using like wildfires so yeah yeah it's
    more tweeny
    so okay so now um
    can you do me a favor
    right never mind
    i cut the string off to get it out of
    the way because i don't like
    pre-measuring when it comes to warps
    now i'm turning it over
    and i like
    wrap it around the knobby
    and then i'm going to feed this through
    and i'm going to tie knot in it
    i like doing it a second time too
    i'm checking my warps to make sure now i
    got out of place just a minute
    they shouldn't have
    but i saw that one shift them
    then what i do then i just like doing
    this for my own security you don't have
    to do this
    and then i just tie a knot here too
    you know that wasn't wildwood flower i
    was playing i was playing that song from
    okay so now you could see that um now
    the next thing we need to do
    is um
    put your little um pitch the jewel loom
    to your buddha bailey
    and then you know you don't want to bend
    too much but enough to get that
    if it won't come out easily one way turn
    it the other way
    i hold on to the warps while i'm doing
    this too
    and then just snap it out
    now you got a nice tight um
    loom to work with
    and now
    so we're going to go on to the other
    part okay
    okay so that was warping um and we're
    we're doing this in three uh a series of
    three videos the next step is um
    oh first we gotta remove the rod i
    forgot that's part of the warping uh oh
    so now you wanna remove the rod
    let me grab mine
    once again you want to use your little
    goddess belly
    and then you just slightly turn it
    i mean you don't want to bend it too far
    your warps are going to go out of place
    and then you remove your rod
    i'm going to bend to that
    just slightly not a lot see your warps
    are okay because your warps can move if
    you bend it too much okay okay i did it
    i did it
    okay so now our next video is going to
    be on um
    looming we just figure i mean on weaving
    the beads and we're using big beads i'm
    using like eight millimeter she's using
    ten millimeters so we can make it faster
    did you fall asleep or get bored as she
    if i get bored i'm going to sit on the
    couch while she tells me and then she
    tells me
    we'll see you in our um the second part
    of this video um bye thanks for joining
    Transcript - Video 2:
    hi this is ginger and joan again i'm here for part two of our um jewel loom
    series just to remind you this is our first time doing a tutorial
    so i hope you enjoyed the the last one
    okay so now our next day aka warping for a dummy
    [Laughter] um our next step we're going to be doing is um
    actually beating the warps since we already walked we're going to be the warps now there are some things you're
    going to need you're going to need um jewel loom needles can you see that
    but there i got a couple suggestions i don't know if they still make these i found them in my stash
    big eye needles on big eye needles because i'll use when i'm not using a really wide um make not
    a real wide brace that i use which i don't have anymore in here but the small big eye needles too
    so when i saw the long ones that are longer than the jewelry needles i thought i'm going to try that today
    ginger's using the jewel loom needles and then another thing is um
    ginger is using what the black wildfire which goes with her no not smoke
    well smoke oh yeah okay well anyway she's using the wildfire and i ran out of red wildfire and i
    didn't realize it so i'm not going to show you what i'm using
    who's that because we're our beat along girls and sometimes we have to cheat to get things
    done because no stores here sell it i have to order it on the red line have you ever used
    fishing line that's what this is [Laughter]
    not far from here remember i told you you bought some too yeah
    okay so um so we're going to get ready to get started so just a minute and we're going
    to flip over to the other camera
    okay ginger do you have your needle fit threaded yes i do
    okay what you want to do is um what we did was um we took um
    we took our um thread and um you know we took an arm length and i
    always do like plus four for four inches four to six so i have a
    tail later which i'll get on my way i'll show you so then we've
    threaded it through and we're going to take one end
    and you want to tie it the end onto here tie it
    tie it tie the end yeah so and make make sure you have at
    least a four to six inch tail i mean there's a reason for it i'll show you you know later that's towards the end
    try it one night or two
    i do too i mean but you can do one but i do too just to make sure it's tight because it's gonna kind of hopefully go
    into the um oh gosh and plus it's gonna hide since you got black on black
    black on black i want my baby back
    if gray was gray see this is what i'm doing just do it like this
    i'm having a hard time see my fingers i tell you what my fingers just
    don't work hardly anymore i will be you know different people use
    different techniques i'm showing you what i like to do because um
    like when i learn different techniques i usually watch more than one person do them because i usually find ways that
    i like that's easier one way than another
    oh there's one
    okay i got two now what okay so then what i do next is i take
    just to get the tail out of the way for right now i tape it onto the back
    you know so not getting in my way
    okay so just wrap it around to the back and tape it on there
    i lost my needle lord okay now what okay now now we're ready
    to bead okay so just pick up three beads well no
    first you put your um first we're gonna have to pray
    okay first um we're going to be working left to right which i forgot to tell ginger let's move
    this down because we want the first row to line up with this hole for your size show it show it
    well i had to line it up see this is where see the whole ginger needs about uh we're figuring about six and
    three-fourths bracelet yeah and so ginger's um
    is going to line up about near this hole so that's where she's going to start and so you pick up
    put your needle underneath the um warps to the other side
    okay so this might be easier to have for you to have some
    beads on the other side okay okay so the
    wait you've got mine hooked in with yours look here
    we got her we got her our fishing line and their
    can you get it down i just wanted to make sure it's getting out the right way
    i'll have to uh i'll have to hang it okay there it went there it went oh my god
    [Laughter] so instead of warping for dummy we're going to do
    beating for dummies being for dummies okay so now i'm going to put
    my three beads
    no that's not it if you can see the holes just poke at the holes and slide it through what is
    it three beads i'm gonna stick on here yeah three beads you have four warps so you can only use
    three beads because they gotta go between the warps
    okay now what okay now
    you're gonna slide them all the way to the end all the way to the end
    okay okay now this now i'll show you i have
    to fix my oh i know how you do this
    now i'm gonna stick it okay yeah you've done
    a little bit like this before yeah so you stick the beads in between
    um the warps and then you feed your needle back in from the other side from where you started
    oh i gotta go under that end of that warp each time no no you go above the warp so you make sure
    your needles see see how you can see the needle above the warps in between yeah yeah yeah
    make sure they could see it on yours see you you can see the silver part in
    between so you know that the needle's above the warps and you want to you go underneath the warps the first time and
    then above the warps the second time so that way it locks it into place
    okay otherwise if you go underneath again you're just going to be threading your um
    your beads and the beads because y'all see it i wish i'd gotten another color thread so everybody can see it now we're going
    to go in under it again okay now what i do yeah but now i do something different
    i like locking my first row into place so i go underneath that first row again
    and go through the beads go through the beads while you're going underneath the warps
    this helps meet my beads from sliding around
    my gosh it's a good idea
    because otherwise my beads were sliding all around when i was trying to do it you know before
    uh-oh what happened here
    okay so is this the second time going through yeah but then there's a mess right there
    at that end oh
    you got wrapped around now give me your needle get it over here so that they can see it
    she had it wrapped around the loom so we're just trying to untangle it
    this is the part that i get my phone and i go in there and sit down on the chair so
    some reason this is really loose
    can we see it okay now
    i'm just feeding it back through i'm going to put it through again i want to tighten it because that's really loose
    and i don't know why it's in the first row and you want to make sure that the strings are hugging
    the you know your ends when you wrap around they're hugging the um your warps because but don't you think
    the first row is the most important it it holds it in place and that's why i
    like you know strengthening it so it holds it locking it in place
    because otherwise i was having problems with it sliding all up and down when i was weaving you
    know the whole bead thing yeah if i can lock the first row in place
    or it is in it you've got it tangled in your fishing line again shut up
    it's tangled in my flyers too you know if we were getting paid for
    this it'd be a different story this is ginger and joe
    that's our best but you know our stuff turns out really pretty
    okay now my fishing line i forgot to get it out of there let me just unstring
    take it off the hold that i think we caught a carp
    we caught a loom with your fishing mine
    yeah now pull it off it okay
    now back on that yeah i'm just gonna lock it in place so i did this twice just to get the
    beads locked in place
    thank you joan okay another way you could have done it which we're going to get at the end but when you have smaller beads to lock into
    place you could use that tail right away and to lock them into place okay below now what
    now we're going to do the second row we go under it uh-huh
    okay and then i'll put three beads on
    okay see everything's the the strings going under it now we're going to go over it
    well this big i kneel is a little bit too flimsy i'm going to have to switch the jewelry needle
    okay i had to keep on threading it jules jules did this for a reason
    i know and you know me and you do the same thing we gotta try it our way first to
    see now this is going to kind of hang around
    so if then i go in under are you just going that one that one you
    go under across when you pick and then you go over when you're coming back this way yeah but i'm not going to tack it
    down anymore this is nice you could start your next row okay then i go under
    put three on i'm just not good at teaching because you're just messed up you're doing good
    i mean well i've tried to work too it's just you and your fishing line you
    now this is getting easier the first true rose i thought i was going to have a two row um
    bracelet now i even make them one row the same
    way so it's two warps in one row and i made a really cute um
    charm bracelet that way so i had the beads and then um jewel sells these really cute charms
    that you can paint or color you know with like aren't they yeah and i colored those and i did it for um
    with flowers and i um made up you know with
    and i hung them on there and it was really cute so i had a charm bracelet that i made on the loom
    that was neat okay now see my my what's this is it's called string
    what is this called wildfire wildfire okay
    uh my wildfire and i'm using the six pound
    you can use four pound and that's what i did one yeah she's using the point zero zero six inch
    i couldn't tell you what the difference in the poundage is except it i guess the only thing i could figure out it'll
    catch a six pound fish without it so strong i'll catch a six pound fish without breaking is the only thing i can
    figure out but don't quote me on that oh my god you know you don't catch fish with
    wildfire wildfire is originally a fishing line was it really yeah
    see that's how that company started see we're not in wires and stuff we know something new every day
    martha stewart said that she said you need to to learn something new every day she
    ought to have learned how not to get into prison didn't she
    can you imagine though why if he's watching this he's probably shaking his head at us
    yeah i have to tell him we want to do a tutorial with him oh lord he come running the other way
    he does anyway but he sees us especially ginger we're talking about white white yeah from being alive and
    famous we love him today
    these are buddy [Laughter] [Music] i hope you all see what i'm doing
    you know what
    wonder how many inches i need for my my bracelet right here
    inches of these beads
    well i was thinking six and a half to six and three-fourths can i tell them where i got my beads
    or no no
    i got mine out of my stash i have no idea where they came from
    you know like if anybody else sometimes you have beets in your stash for like 10 years i don't remember we got it
    it's like i'm getting ready to make 16 bracelets for my aunt and um
    and i told her some of them some of the seed beads i need i said i bought those
    eight years ago and i've never used them since don't worry about it
    that's crazy make 16 bracelets but if you're doing it for a family
    member i figure if i make one or two a day it won't seem so bad um okay well i'm gonna
    call you in the wait and see how well i'm not gonna start him until after you go home
    go back to georgia
    i'm not watching what i'm what i'm recording here so i hope you all can see this
    if not tune in to jewels and shooting
    well some of this we're not going to show the whole thing oh we're not going to do it no not you beating all the way we'll pick up towards the end i'll chop
    part of it out you know because that's a boring part how much of this do i need um for you
    well we're gonna have to measure cause i don't know about ten like on this one it was like how many
    rows but it's eight millimeter here's the ten millimeter one two three four
    60 beads can i show this to everybody look at this this is jones that she made
    we did the i did the ending differently than what we're going to do it i think but there's all different kinds
    of ways you could do endings um and i figured this is like the easiest braid to start ginger out with
    the loom oh yeah so pretty
    okay so here i'm going back again i like experimenting on endings coming up with different kinds
    my back's starting to hurt i think i might let joan finish this
    i'm getting the hang of it now this is fun
    so um that's at 16 rows we'll check and see how long yours is or even 15 rows just
    to see okay 16 or 15 one that one's four five six seven eight
    here let's see how long it is right now it
    yeah that's about three little three and a quarter so i got about three
    you got about halfway
    so what's the funniest thing that ever happened to you can you say it on air
    i'm sure i got a lot of clean ones and
    um well
    one time back in the 90s when i was younger my girlfriend and i
    took some of my clothes to the salvation army box
    and i dumped them all in and then she says
    oh my gosh my niece could wear some of those clothes
    so wait a tucky dunk though yeah so and it was night time it was at a shopping center parking lot
    so i said now i only weighed like 100 pounds
    and i said well stand here and grab my ankles
    and i'm gonna you just told me you just hold me
    and i'm going to get that stuff out now it was darkest pitch in there
    so she was holding me and i was throwing the stuff back out
    and about this time these two old women like my age now
    was coming down through there and thought that we were stealing so they parked their car right there
    and she let my feet go oh no so you're inside i'm inside that box
    and we're right on a creek and i thought and we've you know notorious for rats down there and i thought oh my god
    i am going these rats are in here so when i finally jumped out
    i jumped out of my out of that box and got in my car [Laughter]
    and i chased those poor old women now i know i wasn't gonna do nothing to them
    but i just wanted to scare them like they scared me and they went flying
    they went fine they were scared to death they thought you're coming after them yeah yeah
    i mean i was like 24 or 25 years old but um
    don't you think that my wrist is well i measured seven inches but i know
    i've measured seven inches before but you keep saying your wrist is eight inches well total so you know the beads are
    going to be so it'll be six inches but since these are bigger beads we need to make a little bit bigger you know longer
    so i think if you do six and a half inches
    okay so warps aren't going to be right against your skin it's going to be raised up because of the bigger beads that's why i'm saying you want it a
    little bit longer you know just like when we're okay i'm stretchy breath okay let me ask you this
    the where's that where's that bracelet you had measure
    i i measure that well because you're not going to macaroni measuring macrame too
    am i going to macrame this no you're going to use you're going to use one of these
    she's going to use one of these oh
    well total that's about six inches okay so i'm saying six and a half just
    because these you know they're not so this is gonna see how the warps not really against you well yeah mine but i
    guess this is like four and a half what did i just say that was six
    yeah sure but now you're talking about rats i had
    a dream last night about rats oh lord
    i don't know so we're just saying i forget why all my family was in a hotel
    and i went down to visit my youngest brother and his wife and there's other people in there
    their room was infested with rats and they kept staying there
    and so and there was even like a nursery school on the other side of the wall but they
    were it was the cleanest nursery school you ever saw but that room was messy with rats so i went off about my way and i came
    back a couple weeks later and they're still staying around but it's the cleanest room you ever looked at they had to get rid of the rats themselves
    i don't know what brought that where you got that stupid dream on did you eat before you went to bed
    sometimes when i eat right before i go to bed i'm i have a
    crazy crazy dream and especially if i eat chocolate before i go to bed i've
    noticed i had a dream about nela you know jules
    baby daddy and i wrote him the next day and he and
    it was really weird i dreamed he was doing a workshop with um flat mesh and he was weaving
    clothes with them can you imagine expensive that workshop
    would be because your dreams are awfully detailed but they are i always have the most detailed dreams
    i mean now my my threads come off now i'm going to tell y'all something if
    you've got if you have a hard time um getting your thread through that eye if
    you'll take your flat nose and just flatten it flatten it just a little bit
    it will go this it will go through like a charm
    i still need bright lights for it to go through so like if i'm working the living room just with my little lamp i come in here
    where i have bright lighting to thread my needle again see how
    i don't know if you can see it see how flat that is
    i think the only way i can do it
    i am lord i watch it not go anywhere
    now okay so now i'm taking this center
    you haven't seen this but i'm making actually kind of a replica of jules love
    cuff she did a shorty video of it online on
    youtube you know like 15 seconds long that thing got
    over 38 000 hits in a debt in a 24-hour period and then she looked at the
    analytics of it and it was all men so we're thinking can you imagine what they probably thought it was the love cup
    i hate it when i get that okay one more row and i'll have six
    i got a bunch of rows to go but we'll stop when you're gray
    when my husband goes on motorcycle trips joe comes joan comes down to see me
    and i'm working at the thrift store now i'm oh what am i gonna do when you're at the
    thrift store that week you can come down help me cook i'm in the kitchen
    and it only took two days though yeah three oh you do three days
    but um i find the best stuff down there in that thrift store
    oh my gosh and that's it some of the thrift stores around here they have the prices of antique stores you know like
    furniture and stuff yeah and then i go down to her house and we go to the thrift store oh my gosh they're so cheap
    i want to take a u-haul to buy some of that in the really nice furniture for dirt cheap it's unreal we've got
    two high-end communities that's in the gated communities that's in the
    uh mountains and so one day a week is one of them and they take the truck up there and have
    deliveries i mean that pick up stuff okay now i've got my six right here okay well i can switch over to my other loom
    okay okay so now what we what you need to do then
    i swear i think it's gonna be too big but maybe not look at it
    maybe not in the class okay let's go for it okay you can fix it if it's messed up
    there's different ways i do it if i'm i've made mine too short before yeah and but now some of yours
    like they're loose do you want them tighter yeah they are no i'm fine they don't fall out
    we're doing okay go ahead and lock the last row in place like we did go underneath through and then over the top
    and through i just like at least lock in the first and last and then i'll show you how you can end it well you did
    pretty good let's see this is one we'll fix that with this thread quit aggravating me okay
    so i'll keep doing this while you're fixing that
    when you make me you know i love you
    okay i'm walking it
    okay okay now i've locked it okay now wow
    tie it at the end like you did down there
    i can take my needle off cana yeah if you want to then you have to put it back on well no i don't wanna do that
    is this maybe i need you want me to do it for you and show you what i'm talking about
    yeah let's um and then i'm going because i'm going to have you go through some needles to hide we're switching places
    you finish it off john no yes i won't i don't want to pull with it you do okay
    so all i'm doing now is just tying it
    see i took the needle underneath and then through the loop here to make a knot
    i mean others do a lot nicer than me but this is the way i do it
    and now i'm going to i want to hide some of the thread
    and i'm gonna come through here i just gotta make another knot up against there but you
    know this just straight strength
    come on
    see i'm trying to be nice usually when i make jewelry a cuss
    i think
    so i just feed it through a few rows that way you know it's not going to come undone you can see i did a couple knots
    too um
    wait just gonna let me do this okay
    yeah that's good that's through three rows um and can you give me my blue scissors in
    that little box yep talk about those scissors joan
    these oh yes because jules is looking for a pair of scissors these are oscar fisker scissors and to
    me they almost look like little kids scissors but uh a lot of bead shops sell them as
    wildfire fireline scissors we got them for five dollars and i they've gone up a tiny bit in
    price but this is i mean so i imagine any fiskars would work but these are awesome
    and plus they fit in my tool kit you know i could easily throw them in my little bag with my wildfire
    so i just trimmed off right against the bead and now we gotta do the other end with
    that tail i told her to take
    so if you ever want to be friends with ginger you got to know how to finish her jewelry
    i'm adhd
    i can only sit for so long okay
    so this one was kind of droopy so i'm going to use the tail to try to fix it
    so you always want to try to pull your line so you know when you don't want like a
    little um sticking out you want it to hug the warps but you know you don't want to get too tight but
    you want to do it tight enough so uh the wildfire hugs the warps
    okay this is short oh gosh i'd never be able
    to do that practice
    you'd make a good surgeon [Laughter]
    you let me say that next time yourself you can tie that liver right up
    and say oh i supposed to paddle liver i've got a kid in here
    and what you could do is get my little burner out of that box it's probably underneath those bags here
    it is don't look at this burner don't look at it it's another brand
    i've got three burners but this is the one i have near me
    you could use a cigarette lighter couldn't you yeah but i'm always afraid of burning the warmth
    there so i just made a little ball so it won't get untied
    okay so that's um this is
    i don't know if i have it on screen yeah you do i can okay so this is um
    uh we got it all um threaded and now um the next step is going to be finishing off taking it off the loom and
    um adding on our closures so that will be part three the our final part
    so um you know i'm gonna mix these up
    ginger was talking about our little bead board look at our little bead board isn't it so cute
    jules has those for sale and doesn't she yeah
    and on jilloom.com they're um they're 19.99 and she has this little
    thing you could stick your needles in i know when you like you have to walk away for a few minutes just stick your knee
    needle in this little cork it's really pretty so and it actually goes with one of her
    other limbs though how much are they they said 1999 1999
    1999 is there five easy payments
    you have to talk to jill's about that but i don't think so like qvc is just five easy payments
    i got my smart watch for five easy payments and i'm putting links in the looms and just to let you know that i do
    um help jules and i do have an affiliate link so that's what i'm gonna use on there
    so you get a kickback yeah
    the only way anybody don't want to give me a kickback that was jill's idea yeah that's good so order from these
    um those links yeah what do you get five dollars each time i
    don't know i don't think you did no not five dollars i'm just kidding there's a percentage i just don't know what it is
    so uh okay so um we'll see you next time then we'll be
    right back bye
    Transcript - Video 3:
    welcome back to um the um jillian's
    beginner lesson with ginger and joan
    ginger joe
    questions for dummies
    if you can't make a bracelet from our
    instructions there's something wrong
    with you
    yeah yeah
    anyway uh in this part three we're going
    to be showing how to finishing off your
    um project um which is just a simple
    large bead um
    and so we'll be taking it off the loom
    and then um showing how you can finish
    it off we're using 10 millimeter beads
    and look here
    yesterday our hair looked so good we
    were talking about this and then it
    stormed last night we both got natural
    curly hair look at this mess
    look at this mess we're hoping
    we're hoping it looks good a minute
    later yeah it looked great yesterday
    no it's not frizzy but earlier but
    there's something i mean this is it
    is really curly oh i know it currently
    on top but i've been out in the rain but
    the thing about it is you can't do
    nothing with natural curly hair so it
    just is what it is
    yeah it is
    at least
    joan is going to
    finish this off because if you can see
    my hands i've got
    osteoarthritis and with this rain
    i'm just i can't do it so okay
    um now i'm going to show you how i take
    things off the loom and the reason why
    i'm showing you this way
    is because you know if you have a larger
    wrist you're using that more room on the
    then um
    and which means it shortens these
    and that means you have less to work
    with for whatever you want to do to
    finish it off so i'm going to finish
    this one off with a button
    this is what the button looks like
    and so
    okay so what i do
    is i ain't tie the knot so i could have
    because when i start cut normally most
    people just cut these but then i find i
    don't have as much room to work with you
    know when i want to use a button for a
    um there's been times that like when
    i've used leather or something like that
    i'll use i've made um
    barrel sliding barrel knots and barrel
    knots that i would um glue onto the
    string to hold them in place so i didn't
    have to use any of these
    but and this one i've already tried it a
    few times
    i'm just going to untie the knot
    has anybody taught you this would you
    just figure this out i like figuring out
    things myself that what what will work
    for me because i've done oh even like
    macrame ends onto rings so i could use
    um well i guess this isn't going to work
    so we'll do the best we can i'm just
    going to go ahead and cut it as close as
    i can
    probably because i knotted it
    yeah this was the original um that
    ginger knotted
    so now i'm gonna look at it
    i just want to make sure
    sorry for the pauses we we're having to
    watch this to see if it um everything
    keeps showing
    um didn't take
    uh camera production in high school did
    we jump
    so the first thing we want to do is
    gently i mean you want it tight but you
    want to gent gentle you don't want to
    make these so tight that it starts
    pushing the beads down because then your
    beads are going to be all warp you know
    this part will be all warpy
    so i'm tying the ends right now
    yeah see what i'm doing i see everything
    you're doing okay
    we're supposed to get snow here saturday
    one to three inches
    last i heard it was just possible
    flurries well i hope so cause i'm
    leaving for jasper saturday with my
    granddaughter and dog
    how's old tom doing he's a mess
    heart poodle and part too and i
    tell you what
    he can look at you like you have no
    sense whatsoever
    he's full of shits yeah
    okay so i tied the ends now i want to
    figure out which part is going to go
    into um the button now a lot of people i
    just want to show you a lot of people
    put like two strands in one buttonhole
    and two strands and another one
    and they'll tie a knot and have like a
    little fringe that's not me or ginger
    ginger hates tassels and that's a
    tassley look
    so what i'm gonna do is i'm going to see
    if i can
    take this
    and feed them through one buttonhole and
    then back through the other
    you need a
    little needle or something
    that's why i got these pliers here yes i
    can grab them
    so i just now i got
    these in it might be easy to try and
    twist it to try to hold them together
    just so you can feed it in
    now i'm feeding it into the other
    i like that a lot better
    and then what i'm gonna do
    and this is where glue is your best
    i'm gonna get um
    some cord here oh here's some no let me
    get you some glue
    i got blue over there
    i think i did it for you well i won't
    use it until the very end but yeah thank
    you it's right next to that
    black box
    so i'm going to just tie a knot here
    because this is going to be kind of
    hidden anyway
    and this is our favorite glue
    g is hypocement but i'll use whatever is
    except for don't
    except for uh
    except for um
    super glue on stretchy bracelets oh my
    lord oh my lord we've got to take a
    break and let me just explain this to
    you about what we're seeing just real
    quick i'm going to be tying not just
    watch me while she talks
    decided to do a stretchy bracelet and we
    uptown knoxville and we were sitting at
    the table and everything and so
    we put all of our beads on
    glued it
    super glue super glue well we didn't
    know that super glue
    ate up the stretchy so don't never do
    and we had all of a sudden i put it on
    my arm and those beads went everywhere
    the restaurant was really crowded
    and so we were picking them up well i
    counted them joan went to the bathroom
    i counted them and came up with one
    so and we just had just enough beads so
    i looked under the table and there was a
    priest sitting right next to a swear i
    swear on the stack of bibles this is
    a a priest was sitting next at the next
    table and under his foot was my bead
    so i got down by
    195 pounds of me got down on my hands
    and knees
    and i thought oh god please don't let
    the priest know that i'm underneath his
    foot and i grabbed it i grabbed that
    bead but getting up
    was another story well about that time
    here come joan and she said what are you
    doing i said i found my life's bead
    put your hand here yeah so i come out of
    the restroom seeing let's see
    see it's not too big you're worried
    about that yeah so i'm going to make a
    knot here and then another knot that it
    can go in between yeah okay
    but that was our story and sticking to
    it we just
    so we learned a very valuable medicine
    and uh so don't never use
    super glue
    with stretchy cord yeah so we did write
    wyatt and
    white white right white guy i can't talk
    today and he said that uh really rubber
    c mint's the best for stretchy cord and
    the second is the hypo mat yeah
    so what i'm trying now is to tie a knot
    here because her bracelet is a little
    bit too small
    she was worried about being too big
    yesterday and we didn't add any more
    rows but when we put it on it's a little
    too small what are we going to do about
    we're going to do a little stretch thing
    to make it work
    it's just a design thing sometimes
    could you couldn't you put that knot
    just a little bit farther up well what
    i'm doing is putting this knot at the
    bottom then we're going to do another
    towards the end oh okay
    there's always a way in here yeah
    wait here not the watch
    see now i could put the knot there
    and ginger doesn't like tastely look so
    this won't be too much of a tassley look
    for her
    i don't know there's something about
    that and gypsy rose lee
    with tassels
    hanging down off her boobs you know i
    mean there's just something that
    which i'll do yeah
    john's got the boobs and she's got the
    yeah i've done it on well not on
    facebook live on a zoom call
    okay so i'm just now feeding it because
    i want to make sure the button can go
    through this
    let's try it before i tighten everything
    now will that um hemp cord give any
    i don't know
    because i've never worn a lot of hemp i
    just started using hemp when i started
    using the jewel loom i just started
    doing looming about a year ago so i've
    used a bunch of different types of
    yeah that's a lot better oh that's
    fantastic and so then the last step i do
    this for security
    i knot all my um
    i glue all my knots
    so i just stick that little bigger right
    in there and give it a little make sure
    that each of these strands coming out
    has some glue on it
    is it coming out
    it is now
    that stuff stinks don't it
    i can see how people get tired
    now you're going to start sniffing it no
    i'm not
    i'm 70 years old i don't want to have
    causes of brain damage but i've got
    enough brain damage uh but i'm 70 years
    old i want to live just a tiny little
    bit longer
    and she's already telling me to come
    down to her house with a u-haul for a
    you got to get all those beads and all
    those tools out of there i tell you
    that for her husband

    like mine that kind of hangs down like
    this you know i just wanted to thank
    while she was making that i was making
    uh you know i mentioned earlier in the
    this um i want to show you well first of
    all remember i said that made a shorting
    video 15 seconds
    in that one day
    i did my version what i think they
    thought it was
    beetle on shade everybody
    and so i um i used some of her plain um
    buttons and i um
    did it in uh paint them in gold and put
    hearts on them
    because i couldn't find anything that
    would go you know good and i thought
    that was real pretty so
    and that's the love calf my version
    i hope you all enjoyed this oh also
    you know i we showed it upside down
    before but this is the um
    the b board that's in
    jewel shop
    you know the cork for the needle
    and um
    in the book of esther
    and it says perhaps this is the moment
    for which you were created isn't that
    beautiful and we created
    so that really strengthens you as you
    beat too so you might consider getting
    that um you don't put the links in the
