The Hathor Bracelet
(Reversible Rainbow Loom Bracelet)
Hello everyone! Filipinos today are overwhelmed with the presence of our Pope Francis here in the Philippines. We feel so blessed with him coming all the way from Vatican focusing his visit on “Mercy and Compassion” for the poor and victims of typhoon Haiyan.
Going on, this design is one of my original rainbow loom bracelet design. It is a celebration piece that I made for my sister.
My HATHOR bracelet is named after the Egyptian Goddess of the sky, love, beauty, joy, motherhood, music and fertility.
I was inspired to make this bracelet the day that my sister announced she’s already pregnant. Thus the name is perfectly right. Truly we are so blessed to welcome this new fruit to be a part of the family soon! We asked and He gave us more. To God be the glory! Thank you Papa Jesus!
To make this bracelet, we need the following:
-A rainbow loom board in a regular set-up. That is the middle pin bar is 1 peg higher than the side pin bars on a three-pin set up. You can use 2 for a full-wrap bracelet or just 1 and add an extension. My wrist is just 1 loom but it also depends on what type of bands that you will use. Pearl bands usually needed 2 looms since that stretch property of those bands are not the same as compared to jellies and opaque bands.
– Rainbow loom hook or crochet hook if you prefer
-Set or rainbow loom bands or any looming rubber bands that you have. I used RL bands Limited Edition Gold Mint and White Pearl and also Pearl Carribean Green for this tutorial.
– and a c-clip to fasten your bracelet
Step 1. Placing the bands. As you can see on the diagram. The loom arrow should be facing up away from you. place the bands accordingly as seen on the picture from left to right. Do this until you reach the desired length for your bracelet. You can experiment on the colors of the bands that you will use. For my example, I alternate white pearl and gold mint per 1 segment (1 segment = 1 diamond shape placement).
Step 2. Place your middle bands starting from the bottom all the way up. This will serve as the bands to connect the bracelets together. Put a double cap band after to hold the bands for looping and for the attachment of c-clip.
NOW LET’S GET LOOPING!
Loop 1. Turn the loom board around and start looping from the bottom. As you can see on the diagram, loop bands from the inside of the capped band starting from the center band, then left and to the right. Or bring up the band from how it is layered. Band on the top layer first.
Loop 2. Loop back the band below of the same band over. Do this also to the other side.
NOTE: If you can’t see the diagram or if it may appear small to you, please click on the picture for the full size.
Loop 3. Loop the band below of the left and right peg to the center peg as in the picture below.
Loop 4. Repeat looping from Loop 1 to Loop 3 until you reach the end of the loom board.
Put on the c-clip of the bracelet. If you have use only one loom board, and you think the bracelet is not yet enough for your wrist, you may do an extension by making a single chain from the last band. I usually do a fonzarelli design for the bracelet extension. Fonzarelli design is design by Suzanne H-B and tutorial by Loves2loom in YT.
So here you go, your Hathor bracelet is done!
