|Sign up to make this stellar cuff |
at the Bead & Button Show!
Working on the Beadalon loom is so much fun, it really takes me back to my beady beginnings. I started using seed beads on a loom almost exactly like the one that every student will get in my class at the Bead and Button Show in June. I know, I know–what about those pesky warp thread ends, right? That "chore" has kept you from using the loom, right? Not any more!! In my class you will learn to whisk those ends outta sight plus many other practical and easy loom weaving tricks:
|Use strong and non-stretch WidFire|
to string the main long threads (warp)
and for weaving (weft).
|We learn how to read and design a chart.|
|See how to make your piece as long as you wish!|
|Discover how many things you can |
weave on a loom--earrings, for example!
|The colors of the Hollywood Cuff|
are shimmering Miyuki size 11 Delica beads
Next to the zen of weaving with Miyuki Delica beads and the satisfaction in the way those beads fit together, the best part of this project is the way we finish. We simple cut the cuff from the loom, fold under the threads, and adhere into a bezel cuff from EK Success. The look is superbly crafted and stylish.
So sign up! You keep the loom as part of the class kit, and I will have plenty of other patterns and blank cuffs for sale so you can make more– because I guarantee your friends will all want to be a film star too!
