Beading on a loom


I've been a follower of Erin Simonetti's blog, A Bead Looming Intervention (or also known as Beads, beading, beaded!) for awhile now and keep being amazed at the work she creates. If you are a beader or just appreciate beading, do go and check out Erin's blog and website. I love cuffs as most of my friends know and Erin has made some of the most outstanding pieces of art in her cuffs and other jewelery! Talk about beautiful work and workmanship!! Erin is also so great at posting techniques, tips and the progress of her work. She has inspired me to attempt beading on a loom.

So I'm going to see what books are at our library and order them. A gal has to start somewhere! Do make sure to take a minute or two to see some of Erin's art! OK, it will take more than a minute or two! Once you see some of her beading, you'll keep reading blog post after blog post...but that's ok..you could be doing worse things! I guarantee you will be inspired and glad you took the time to 'look'!

I have two, count 'em, TWO beading looms and could never figure out either one.
Do you think there are people who are just flat out challenged when it comes to anything bead-wise that isn't on fabric?
Because I am sure I fit in that category..... ;-)

XXOO~~
