Bead Weaving On A Beading Loom-Friday Findings

Title: Bead Weaving on a Beading Loom

After playing with it for the past couple weeks, I’ve found not only is it an easy device to use, but the design possibilities go beyond gridded patterns to include all different kinds of beads, textiles and fibers for amazing textural effects.

More on all those possibilities in upcoming posts and videos.

In today’s video I’ll show several options for beading looms, how to set up the Little Ricky loom and give the basics for bead weaving.

Be sure to watch for my post next week, when I’ll go through a bead weaving bracelet from start to finish, including how to plan your own designs and how to make it without a loom.
