    Little Round Chick,

    No needle was used in creating this bracelet. It was strung with thread by hand. I designed this bracelet to be made by stringing the beads. Labor intensive …yes;
    but done without any needles.

    Annie, I think that it may be the tension. I weave my thread at the end of my loomed work enough so it will stay flat. I don’t know what other type of advise that I may offer than for you to just keep at it until you find what works for you. I wish [...]

    O.K….I looked up what selvage is and how it is applied in looming cloth. Not beads. Do I understand you Annie that you use material or cloth on the ends of your bead loom project ? Or leather perhaps ? I don’t use material to finish my loomed beads. I weave the thread on both ends [...]

    Annie,

    Uh…what is a selvage ? You lost me and I am unable to properly answer your inquiry. And what are puckers ? Is that when the beads don’t lay flat or flush with your warp threads ? Again, I am very lost. Thank you for the complement on my loom work. I learned from watching how [...]

    Wire does not work well. The original designer used needle and thread. I strung my bracelet with the WildFire beading thread. It gives the flexibility that is needed.
    Thank you sincerely for the complements.

  • Old Beaded Lady Chris commented on the Design “Arizona Southwest by Design”   1 month, 2 weeks ago

    To C Ferguson aka Annie, I have learned to finish my ends of all of my bead loom bracelets by weaving my thread as well on the end enough to secure my ribbon crimp. I will use E6000 glue dabbing it on the finished weave letting it dry. I then will crimp my ribbon crimp using [...]

    Gail, Now we’re talkin’ !!! Yes, I’m liking this necklace very much. Your design is perfect as you created this wonderful mix of beads and wire. Great combo I may add !!! What makes it pop is the focal bead of the parrots and the embellishments that you added with those colorful glass leaves. Wow !!! [...]

  • Old Beaded Lady Chris commented on the Design “Pretty Flowers in A Row”   1 month, 3 weeks ago

    Wow…for just messing around; you’ve made another beautiful bracelet. I love your flowers that you crafted from the leather. You choice of beads with the colors really make this particular bracelet very trendy and stylish. Something you’d find in one of the bead magazines for sure. Very nice indeed !!!

  • Old Beaded Lady Chris commented on the Design “Tweet”   1 month, 3 weeks ago

    I’m a sucker for bracelets. B Trimble, you did a wonderful job with the etching. I’m clueless on this sort of craftsmanship. I love your bracelet. The color combo of the beads along with the etched bracelet connector makes this bracelet very stylish. Beautifully done !!!

  • Old Beaded Lady Chris commented on the Design “Sodalite & Copper”   1 month, 3 weeks ago

    Moogie, this pendant and ring set is perfect !!! I am in love with this combo. The richness of the Sodalite cabochon against the copper makes this pendant so stylish. And the shape of the pendant holder really makes the cab and vice versa. I love rings and always have since I was a small girl. [...]
