  • Old Beaded Lady Chris commented on the Design “Perpetual Adoration Chaplet”   1 month, 2 weeks ago

    Creel U on her webstore at Etsy where she sells her prayer beads on her profile has expressed herself as a witch. I don’t condone nor praise her faith as a witch. I will defend my faith as a Catholic. If she wishes to create her prayer beads great. If she chooses to believe in whatever [...]

    I am Roman Catholic and to be very honest I am insulted by what Creel U tags her beads as being Catholic. I am sorry; but, this is not Roman Catholic by any stretch of what rosaries or chaplets are prayed on by Catholics. Creel U makes wonderful things. She labels her prayer beads and this [...]

    I love the way that this necklace was designed. The colors of the beads are just marvelous. That focal pendant really sets it off beautifully. Well done !!!

  • Old Beaded Lady Chris commented on the Design “More Bones and Leather”   2 months ago

    I love the tribal vibes that this necklace invokes. Great design utilizing the leather and the bone beads.
    I love the way that the wire is wrapped around the beads.
    Beautifully designed necklace.

    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.

  • Old Beaded Lady Chris commented on the Design “My Heart on the Bricks”   2 months, 1 week ago

    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 [...]

  • Old Beaded Lady Chris commented on the Design “My Heart on the Bricks”   2 months, 1 week ago

    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 [...]

  • Old Beaded Lady Chris commented on the Design “My Heart on the Bricks”   2 months, 1 week ago

    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 [...]

  • Old Beaded Lady Chris commented on the Design “Neutral Squared”   2 months, 1 week ago

    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”   3 months, 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 [...]
