Sophie, your woven project is gorgeous! It was the 'loom' word that caught my interest, though  Grin

I would like to mention that the most important aspect of a loom project is to make the 'tension' correct. Many of the inexpensive looms don't allow the tension to stay consistent. Be sure to look over any loom you want to purchase and be sure the rollers or where the thread is secured, is tight! IMHO

I'd love to know why you enjoy bead weaving.  Anyone care to share with a novice?

What's not to love?  Bright beautiful beads, making beautiful miniature works of art!  I started with a loom, but did not stick with that for long.  Not because I did not enjoy it, but because I enjoyed off-loom more - especially as it was more portable than the loom.  I find it engrossing, hypnotic, and the results are so beautiful.

First and foremost, bead weaving is FUN! I love finding new colors to put together, trying out new stitches and techniques.
It's also very theraputic for me...a way to calm my head, if you will. It also quenches my desire to create. Creating a beautiful beaded finished product that is something greater than the sum of its parts always awes me. Especially when you see it sitting next to a pile of beads...lol.

why do I do it?  because it allows me to make things like this:

just in case there's a few people out there who haven't seen this.   Wink
that is all square stitch (a type of off-loom weaving).  I find that video game sprites come in handy when making these.  video game addicted cross stitchers will say the same thing.   Tongue

and sophieangele, your piece is beautiful.   Smiley

Will swap for ceramic bisque steer skulls!
Always in need of things like these!!!
Found another soup of acrylic, seed, glass, wood, polymer, metal, and shell beads!  PM me if you want to swap!!
LOTS of fabric available too!!

I just started bead weaving in July and I haven't stopped since!  There is something about it that is really addictive.  I have always loved beads and working with beads but have really taken off with making jewelry like never before since I started bead weaving. Smiley
