Do you like loom beading? Most beading looms are under $10.00 in the US. I want to get a nicer beading loom someday. I think the kind that are vertical and not horizontal are easier on the back. I was going to show you a photo of the bracelet, but all I got was a red x where the photo should be.

I would like to do some loom beading using seed beads but haven't found a loom made for that yet. If anyone knows of some I would be very interested in getting the url for the site! I am making decorative hairsticks and a loom would be dasier for making the ned caps, with seed beads, than having to hold the work in my hands. I would also like to make some nice chokers.

Many bead vendors carry them. Off the top of my head I looked at firemountaingems.com and typed loom in their search window and they have several kinds in different price ranges. Most multipurpose craft stores have the simple kind. I got mine at Michael's. I use seed beads with it. If you don't see one, ask. Stores don't sell a lot of them so they tend to be on the bottom row or behind the counter. Good luck. I'd love to see photos of your work.

I couldn't afford a loom when I started beading, and I finally learned how to bead without one...I actually like the finished product better, it's a tighter weave, looks so much better! You ought to look into that, too!

I recently started a beaded doll using brick stitch. And I have some peyote stitch on an eyeglass cord that I'm just about done with. Since I teach beadwork I'm trying to learn as many types as possible because I never know what type of beading class someone will want to take or what questions they will have.

I have never seen a beading loom. I used to do beadwork years ago. I used to love to do it.

I would love to have the patience to be able to do this craft. I would love to create bracelets with this. I believe that you can make one using straight nails and wood.
