1  FIBER ARTS / Weaving: Discussion and Questions / homemade brake/tension device for RH loom on: September 30, 2006 07:40:42 AM
I bought an old rigid heddle loom at a flea market for cheap, only to get it home and discover a few missing parts. It's a really old TIA loom from Northfield Looms, so getting replacement parts from them is not an option, as far as I know.

The front bar was fairly easy to replace with some woodworking help from my Dad. However, the rachet and pawl for front and back were also missing. I've thought of a few options, from something as simple as wooden disks and a couple of nails to making my own rachets and pawls from polyclay. I wonder if a large heavy rubberband could be used to create enough friction, though. Any thoughts or suggestions here?
2  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Beads: Completed Projects / polymer clay natasha beads on: March 03, 2006 07:56:26 PM
Hope this is the right place for this posting since these are not exactly a "finished project" just yet. I've been on a polymer clay hiatus for a while, having taken up knitting. However, I got out the clay again a couple of days back with the intention of making toggles and buttons. Here's what I ended up with:

The top left button is actually a kaleidoscope technique, and some of the others are swirl beads.

They still need to be buffed and glossed, but I'm happy with the colors so far.
