"Free Form Weaving Across the Warps"

This Saturday, I'll be teaching a class at Bead Soup, in Savage Maryland, July 16th
Each student will be able to select their personal style by way of colors and bead styles. 

Visit Bead Soup's Face Book Page, to see other design styles.


On Friday, July 15th, I'll be visiting the store, watching those who stop in to buy the beads,
for next day's class. There are many options and styles, as some beads 'interlock' perfectly. 

I'll be sure to share pictures of all the unique colors ways that develop!

Free Form Style, Weaving on the Loom Class


SATURDAY, JULY 16TH, 2016atBEAD SOUP, in Savage Maryland


We will be putting together unique colorways, bead styles and tons of dimension, along the warps. 
There are so many possibilities that it is best when you have a store, like Bead Soup, surrounding you, for when those great ideas hit! You simply walk to a wall, and select the next best bead color or option. This is what the next class at Bead Soup, is all about. Digging down deep, for your personal creativity. 

I have some good tips on what to select and how to weave so each bead interlocks with out sagging wefts. I also have included bead caps, to some of my cuffs, which give that extra boost of design.

This one day class also includes my instruction on how to attach a Box Clasp, to any cuff. 

Call the store to discuss a reservation: 240-456-4568

Beginner Bead Loom Class, in Savage Maryland


    I am visiting Bead Soup, in Savage Maryland again, for a two part 'Beginner Bead Loom Class', June 4th and June 11th. These are the two colors options, I'll be teaching. This class will offer so much, including a unique design concept and various edging methods. This cuff design is narrow and the edging makes it wider. Therefore, you have options on creating a width to suit you. I love "Floral Miniatures" so it was a given, to create a design around that theme. Call the store, 240-456-4568, to discuss availability.


Stay tuned for some news of my other teaching engagements!

It is official.....The Part Two Class, of the Beginner Bead Loom Class, at Bead Soup, this Saturday, is CANCELED, rescheduled for 

SATURDAY FEBRUARY 13, 2016 at 11:00-3:00


The State of Maryland is delaring a "State of Emergency", for Friday and Saturday, through parts of Sunday. Even though I feel sad to know I won't be seeing everyone right away, and finishing off the cuffs, I am finding comfort in knowing everyone will be safe. My thoughts of canceled flights, inpassable roads, stranded cars and other unthinkable snow situations, keep me feeling positive that we will meet safe and sound, on February 13th.

Any Student, who has any question, about the instruction they were given last Saturday, please feel free to email me at erin@simonetti.com This may give you some time to push your creative bead loom boundries but know, I am always here for you!

Beginner Bead Loom Class, Jan 16 & 23, 2016

There was a full house, on Saturday, for Part One of my Beginner Bead Loom Class. This class is such a huge success, with many traveling from out of state, to be involved. 
No one leaves without realizing they will never have a 'naked bead loom again'!

Bead Looms will be at Bead Soup, in Savage Maryland again, on June 4th and 11th, 2016, for another Beginner Bead Loom Class. These classes offer the most information about the bead loom and also allows the students to take any one day class offered, later.

The one day classes include more 'kicked' up techniques.
I'm planning one day classes out to post later. 
But, for now I have worked out further one day classes in April, at Bead Soup.
Beginner and one day classes for May in West Palm Beach and 
another one day in July at Bead Soup. 
I'll post details on my FaceBook Page or here on my Blog, as a few others are in lew. 

Thank you to everyone who took the time and effort to make this trip. 
Thank you to Bead Soup for allowing such a way to share this form of bead weaving! 



The class starts at 11:00, but we sometimes do not get our first row assembled, on the warps, 
until 12:30. No one had any idea of all the information a loom has to offer


There are 24 Delica Bead colors, in this class project. 
Shifting through doubts, everyone found their personal 'zone' to accomplish this feat.
Now, some are ready to kick up the bead color count!!


It was nice seeing Lisa Robbins, hanging out, in the class.
She began, on her loom, with me, when I first taught, at Bead Soup. 
I now bead with her more, when we sign up for the same Designer classes,
also held at Bead Soup.

A Scheduled Beginner Bead Loom Class, Alternate Design Choice



Choice #2: Class at Bead Soup, in Savage MD, 
"Beginner Bead Loom Class"
January 16 & 23, 2016.
Call the Store for reservation information.

"Cardinaling in Silent Snow"
This cuff pattern speaks to me, even though you see the silence. The bead finishes create this scene, with white-out conditions, surrounding the subject, silouetts of trees in the background, snow layden tree branches and a light play of sun, in the background, (which does happen in some snow storms).
It is hard to share, in the photo, but the snow is glistening and 
you can see sparks of it falling, throughout the cuff.

I am now ready for the class and can't wait to see what the students pick to weave first! My 'Beginner Classes' are a favorite of mine, because I can the wheels of creativity turn, in every face.
