London's Garden Bracelet - Tweaked Loops
I mentioned HERE in yesterday's post that I made a different clasp loop on the latest bracelet that I made for my sister. I thought that the first one I made looked a little wonky and I also wanted to use a magnet clasp this time. To get the bead details, read THIS post.
Here is a close-up of how I originally made the loop the first time I made this pattern:
And, here is the new, improved loop:
If you recall, I make this pattern using my own single needle method so I don't know if this kind of loop is possible to make with the 2-needle method. I do think it would work if you start with just three seed beads instead of seven as shown in the Beads Magic illustration, which you can see HERE. Well, hopefully by the time you read this, the Beads Magic site is working again. At the moment it's not loading. The original design for this bracelet was published by Preciosa in a PDF file showing various ways to use Twin Beads. You can download the PDF file HERE.
