Braiding, weaving, & knots!
"Their weft is strung with beads and then the warp threads are separated with a bead in between each one (that is held under the warp threads) and is now ‘captured’ by passing the threaded weft back through the beads on top of the warp. With our “bow loom”, we threaded beads onto the warp first and then ”captured” them along the sides of the warp threads. Here is a photo that explains it better."
