Hey all,

I'm sorry if this post is in the wrong spot. Its my first one.

I've been making a pendant on a bead loom and got stuck on how to finish it off. I've done looms before (been at it since I was a kid) and back then I didn't mind just braiding it and tying a knot... But I wanted this piece and perhaps pieces for the future, to be more clean cut and professional. I wanted to wear it to a show this week (going to see the Jersey Boys!! so excited  Grin)

Any suggestions would be really appreciated!!

So far I'm leaning towards this http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Wp2JQoLXuGM
But I'm hoping someone has another idea.

Thanks craftsters!

Depending on how big the pendant is, what you could do is weave the thread for a few more rows (with no beads), then cut the piece loose, and fold the threads under the back, attach the entire piece to some kind of backing, like felt, or leather.  Not sure if that makes sense- I'll try to find a website with pictures Smiley

Or you can sew the thread back and forth through the last few rows of beads, then use the dangling threads to make a fringe.

Okay, so if you google "finishing bead loom piece", you'll get a number of websites with different ideas, and most with better explanations than mine Smiley

Good luck, and post pictures when you're done!

Peihans idea, and the video, are the method I use for more formal bits - mroe casual things I just knot the ends.
