All That Glitters Bead Loom Class

Blue Santa Beads, in Media PA, is a great store and offers some of the best supply selection around! They invited me to teach a Three Day Class, May 4th, 5th, 6th, and can't wait. 

The cuff and bracelets are the subject of the class, meaning the project can be as wide or thin, as a bracelet, as the student desires. This is an Advanced Bead Loom Weaving Class, meaning the Students should be versed in bead weaving stitches.
Loom weaving knowledge is not necessary, but helpful. 

Our class projects will be completed in Silver, with choices of crystal colors. Here is a sample of a Silver version, with Garnet.

The color selections available are
Jet, Olivine, Peridot AB, Sapphire or Light Sapphire.

Please contact the store, 610-892-2740
for availability.

Keeping Up With New Design Ideas

I love to be in the "zone', or as they say now-a-days, in the "flow". There are two in the works, for me, right now, bouncing around design ideas as I go.

It is so exciting to start something you have in mind. We all feel this excitement, when that creative idea strikes. So, I am set up in my favorite spot to see where this one takes me.

My other design is on it's way, knowing how it will finish. Carrots will be the head line, but so much more to share yet!
Also, notice weaving on a loom does not necessarily require a straight edge or block. Designing a different edge shape takes a bit of forethought when designing. I also used the E-Loomette (sold in my Etsy Shop or classes) to Wane the Warps.

Pendants are fast and easy to weave. Creating patterns are more enjoyable to, in such a larger shape.

I really enjoy weaving beads, on a loom. Through my journey I find this stage the most relaxing.

The design creation takes me some thought. I consider every color and finish. This time, however, I am weaving Japanese seed beads, not my stardard Delicas. The palette for seed beads are almost half as many as Delicas. (11/0 beads sizes.) So my colors had to be tested and considered.

Now, I'm able to weave comfortably, getting into the zone I crave. Size and colors worked out, follow a word chart to only count once and use a two weft method of weaving (minimizes the number of weft changes.)

The ideas are swirling for edging and fringe 😉

One Day Class, 'Texture and E-Loomette'!

Burke Gems and Beads, in Burke VA now has all the 'PRE CLASS' Kits and Instructions. Call the store, 703-425-3366 and mention which kit you would like to weave. Olya mentions she would even mail them to you!! This class is May 13th, 2017, so if you sign up now, there will be two weeks to complete the Pre Class Instruction. Class date is all about 'EDGING' and 'The E-LOOMETTE'.

There are three class project options




I will posting my up coming travel schedule, soon! These include new designs. I rarely repeat any project as I like to offer as many new techniques as I can. There are few, like this class, that was such a success, we are repeating.

We will share how to include large drops and beads, along the warps, lifting the design.
The E-Loomette, is instructed for the accent petals, in the 'Lace in Bloom Cuff".
(Small looms used to weave accents, earrings and pendants,
also instructing a different form of warp management)
There are a few E-Loomettes left over from classes, 
which are posted in my Etsy Shop, until they are gone.
I also listed a few cuff looms.

Two Day Beginner Bead Loom Class, in Media PA!

I am very very excited to share the news that my looms, and I, are traveling again! 

This time to "Blue Santa Beads", in PA.

I'll be teaching a "Two Day Beginner Bead Loom Class" on July 15th and 16th, 2017
The class project is still underway, so I will share later. Howerver, this will be a quaint class of 15 Students.
Call them 610-892-240 or email as soon as possible! My two classes tend to sell out quickly, as they have already in my confirmed classes up until March 2017. 

This intimate size class will allow more 'one on one'. 
I adore these 'Bead Loom Festivals" also known as "Classes"! :D
