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

Bead Loom Weaving in Texas!!

I will be at Spring Beads, in Spring Texas, 

November 11th thru the 13th, 2016. 

There are two classes scheduled. The first day, November 11th, we will be weaving
Free Form Style, on the bead loom. 
The Free From style is so popular, but there are ways to weave the mix of bead sizes, that do not allow the cuff to buckle and twist!


The two days following. November 12th & 13th, two bead looms will be buzzing, along with so many new techniques. Together, we will be weaving the 
"Yellow Rose of Texas Cuff"!
This class will offer 'off the edge' weaving, edging, reading bead loom pattern word charts, two forms of warp management, and so much more! 

If you are interested, please contact the Store:Spring Beads 281-288-9116
