Spring Time, on a Bead Loom!

Spring is finally here!

In celebration, my next 'Bead Loom Class', will have a flower theme. 
"Daised Cuff", below, offers 3D petals arranged in tailored spacing.
The upper edge is actually 'wire crochet'. This is called 'capture chain'
 because it also has a line of 'ball chain' running inside.

Next cuff offered, for this class, is a velvety petal 'Cone Flower'.
The background is woven using 'Tru Cut Permanent Metallic Silver Beads'. 
You can notice a slight glint of light, in this picture. It occurs when the light hits a few of the cut edges.
The petals and leaves are 'matte finish', offering a great contract to the silver background.

Another 'Cone Flower' color way, below. This time with Teals and Black. 
The pattern offers more flowers, in this garden. 
A detailed fringe, using Superduos and crystals, offer a nice sway of Spring!

Each of the cuffs have a 3D addition, in petals or a leaf. 

I am not very versed, in hand weaving beads, or using some of the amazing style beads available today, 
but I did try my hand at weaving a pair of matching earrings!

Now that this line up is complete, I am ready for April 5th and April 12th,
the two day class being held at BEAD SOUP, in Savage Maryland.

June will be my next session, (June 21st & June 28th), sharing all I know, about the bead loom.
I am thinking a 'Summer Theme'!


  1. As in all things, you did a bang up job on those earrings! I love all the cuffs, my fave is probably the red, that touch me flower just grabs me. My fave edging is on the teal and black, it's just lush!

  2. I am in LOVE with the teal and black cone flower set. be still my heart!!!!

  3. Wow! and WOW again! You are an inspiration!
