I am very excited to receive these three pages, which will be published in the December/January Issue of 'Beading Polska Magazine'!
This entire year has been a 'bead loom whirlwind'. Started off teaching, at Bead Soup, last February. Eight fun filled, loomalisious, beadawesome classes completed, along with many new Loomatic Friends! Thrown in were a few published patterns. Now, I'm ending the year on another positive and a new venue for spreading the 'loom love'.
The cover article, being published in 'Beading Polska Magazine', December/January 2013. This is the Lotus Split Loom Necklace, woven on the loom, using my ©Weighted Warp Method, of weaving beads. The weights were gorgeous lamp work creations by Vanessa Hearn.
Page 2, of the article in 'Beading Polska Magazine'. The top picture is one of my Finger Rings, hand woven, not created on as loom. The editor just didn't want to publish without this being included, even though I mentioned it was had woven. The center picture is a three dimensional cuff of 'Forget Me Nots'. This pattern is actually sold at Bead Soup in Savage Mills Maryland. The last photograph is a 'Smocked Cuff', woven on the loom.
The third and final page, of this article, in 'Beading Polska Magazine', offers three pictures, two of which were classes taught this past year, at Bead Soup. The first cuff is a Santa Claus Cuff with a List that is so long, it wraps three times around the wrist, along with the cuff! Secondly, a multiple use of various style beads, all bouncing individually, along the warps. Finally, a smocked amulet bag, which was the focus, of my class, this past August 2013.
Thank you, to 'Beading Polska', for highlighting my art. But most of all, realizing the need, to introduce the loom, on new levels. YEAH!!!!!
