Small beads, shiny beads, glass beads…the beaded loom bracelet is back but with a modern twist! Instead of tiny opaque seed beads, today’s bracelet includes beads of varying size, color, texture, and style. You’ll learn to loom weave a unique bracelet featuring faceted Czech glass beads and larger seed beads that come in translucent, silver-lined, metallic and opaque. Lots of color combinations will be available. Instructions include threading a loom, the meaning of “warp” and “weft,” and the loom-weaving technique. You may bring your own loom,* but if you don’t have one, you’ll learn to use a “DIY” loom provided in class. See more photos at www.ReneeJewelryClasses.com. $7 material fee, due at registration.
*Optional: Recommended looms are the “Jewel Loom” or the “American Indian Bead Loom” available at Michaels and Amazon. Photos of the looms and links are on Renee’s website.
