It has been quite a while since I was able to share some of my bead looming, with everyone here! There have been many emails sen, from this forum, asking questions about bead looming, and my finishing techniques, that I thought I would share one of my latest cuffs!
The clasp is an adjustable style. I have been working on making loomed cuffs more adjustable for a while now!
I also used a very different style bead, for the edging, this time. These are large copper barrel beads. It is so cool they worked out, because now I think my 'edging' bead supply has grown to include larger beads! These barrel beads are big, so I decided to string a row of 11/0 glass beads inside of them so they do not separate while wearing!
The opposite side is just a simple row of Permanent Metallic 11/0 Glass beads!
I love making cuffs, but have been working with 2D patterns more. I'd also like to share this pattern here with everyone!
It would be great to also share some cool techniques to finish the loomed cuffs without much in the way of 'warp management'!
