Finishing Off Loom Beadwork - Selvage and Clamp Ends
Loomed Beaded Bracelet - Sundance Style Artisan Jewelry - Copper and Turquoise - Santa Fe by SplendorVendor
After my store bought loom didn't work for what I needed it to do. I decided to make my own loom more customized for what I needed it to do. I made my loom with materials I already had so I don't know the exact names of everything. Materials I used: 1- 1 x 4 board cut 12 inches long 2 small pieces of wood cut 1 inch long each 2 bolts 3 1/4 inch...
This Fat Santa is just the start of all the Christmas treasures on this bead loomed cuff. Lampwork Christmas bulb and Candy, for the chain accents. Then I hand wove some small charms of Rudolph and trimmed Christmas Tree. The edging was completed by hand weaving a spiral of beads to recreate a garland of pine and berries.
A textural weaving completed on a loom. I was working to recreate a 'wire crochet' with 15/0 glass seed beads, instead of wire.
