Today I am showing you my very first bead loom project.
Dazzle-it has two sizes of the traditional beading loom and I decided to give the standard size loom a try. I have been wanting to learn how to bead on a loom for some time. Later this month I will be taking a class but I decided I better start experimenting this weekend so I am at least familiar with standard loom techniques.
The loom does come with everything you need to get started on a project. It was simple to set up. The only thing extra I did was use my own beads since I had two pretty colours already out on my work table.
I was absolutely AMAZED with the ease in which I was able to bead on the loom for the first time! The box does not lie. It is fun and easy!
When I removed my beaded section I did find one mistake. You can see here I missed catching the main string in this section.
However, for someone who has never used a loom, I think my edge work is quite good!
Since I plan to immerse myself into the art of weaving on a bead loom I also started to experiment with taking photos. I am going to really enjoy learning this traditional and beautiful craft!
