21  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Beads: Discussion and Questions / Re: I just got a bead weaving loom set, help me? on: June 23, 2008 07:22:17 AM
First, take a deep breath, looming is fun and easy and you can do so many things with it.......amulet bags, suncatchers, larger purses door hangers.......oh so many...contact me and let me know what kind of loom it is......I have three, a small one, bout 9 inches, a large one bout 36 inches and a mirrix that I havent' done anything on yet...*waiting for the right pattern and the bravery.  But I have been looming off and on for about 10 years, I think we can do something about that if the tutorials do not help.  My im on yahoo msgr is eternalchildis, on aim is hippiemage or you can just email me at eternalchildis@yahoo.com.  IF it gets too snarky we can work out a phone thing.  I know you will do well on this....good luck and have fun....can't wait to see what your first project is.

That is just plain strung seed beads that are twisted before being placed in the end caps.  You can twist them around a rope or just by themselves, depends on what feel you wish to have and how many seed beads you wish to string.  I employ one of those bead stringers for multiple plain strands, is easy to use and fun, can make several single beaded strands in a few mins once you get the hang of it ( I am still working on that part, still throws beads at me on occasion).  Once you have them twisted you can put in caps with a bit of glue to hold if they want to be snarky, if you do around a core of rope same principle applies.  I hope this helps you a bit.  Good luck and happy beading.

You could make a back side, sew/bead them together, add some fringe and a handle and you would have a amulet purse that is totally amazing.  That is impressive no matter what you do next with it.

I do so love butterflies, and collect them for my room decorations.  Those are awesome.  Very nice work!!

I confess to having difficulty hand weaving, but I can loom weave easily.  You did awesome work, I am impressed!!!  I think my problem is holding it to tightly lol! But I will be attempting it again, I do so want to learn peyote.

27  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Beads: Completed Projects / Re: do you know how much I love The Little Mermaid? on: June 23, 2008 06:02:14 AM
Very nice!!  Did you do this on a loom or freehand?  I do loomwork, and on occasion find good patterns in cross-stitch books.  But prefer to make my own most times.  I am impressed.....today the little mermaid......tomorrow a lamp shade eh?

Peace hugs and beads!!
28  UNITED STATES / North Carolina / Re: I just moved to Salisbury! Help! on: June 20, 2008 02:07:45 PM
I live in Salisbury, I haven't been in here in a long time.....been doing school stuff.  I had a yard sale other day, not so good, but met a couple ladies who crochet and they said they need a store in Salisbury......well I have been having this idea in my head since the mid-90's about a co-op that would be a place for crafters and collectors.  A place to purchase supplies, sell your craft, and share your craft through classes and such.  I am having a meeting with someone to see what all it would take to make this dream a reality July 8th.....*crosses fingers*.  I have heard the Webb Road Flea Market is a good place to go, also on occasion the Nazereth Thrift store up across from where you turn in for I-Hop.....go up a bit just over the curvey hill and is on left....they sometimes have craft supplies in there....and is a neat store anyways.  To set up and sell at the flea market is only 8 bucks outside, but to rent a canopy for shade is 50 and to get someone to come relieve you for breaks is priceless.....I am still considering that option, but is a bit pricey for me right now......I am attempting to learn to crochet, but I am mainly a creator of beaded, hemp jewelry, take old broken jewelry and make new stuff......collect collectable costume for resale......

Glad to meet you....perhaps some day we can meet


Peace, Love and Beads!!
29  UNITED STATES / North Carolina / Re: Charlotte Regional Farmer's Market on: June 20, 2008 01:59:31 PM
The farmers market in Charlotte is awesome!!  I miss it since we moved to Salisbury.  If you are close to Webb Road, they have a flea market, costs $8.00 to set up outside, but there is no shade, and I have been having issues attempting to find an affordable canopy for shade.  Price is right tho for the space.  A 10x10 EZ UP Canopy at our rental place in Salisbury is 50.00.....er um......a bit pricey for me at this time. 
I am also considering attempting to open a co-op for crafters and collectors in Salisbury.  Anyone ever consider this idea before?  It would be a place to sell what you make and perhaps share your craft through classes.  Supplies and other oddities perhaps, or collectable crafts from days gone by.....costume jewelry or doily's or Huh??  All input is good as I try to figure out the best way to get crafts sold and share the knowledge with others.  I do jewelry, use old to make new, hemp, and beaded......Thank you for listening to my idea.....I know it will work, just unsure if can do on my own and if I can get the funding on my own. 


Peace, Love and Beads!!!!

I use nymo and also kevlar, both work well and if on a loom you can tuck and tie both easily...however you can burn nymo to help sela the end but not the kevlar......good luck hope this helps a bit
