The Art of Bead Weaving
There are endless ways to create beautiful beaded jewelry and one of the techniques that we haven’t talked much about is Bead Weaving. This technique is exactly what it sounds like, you weave beads together on string. There are a few different methods but the most common is using a loom and seed beads.
We sell seed beads and occasionally have looms available, let us know if you are interested and we can make sure to have one available for you to purchase your next visit.
Inspired by Julie Powell
Bead weaving is a great technique to learn and you can be inspired by jewelry online for your next project. We loved looking at the bead weaving artist Julie Powell on the website Artful Home.
Her projects are so beautiful we can’t wait to start weaving (images shown are of her work).
We found a great video showing the basics of bead weaving (though the background music is a rock song, a bit surprising in case you want to turn down your speakers Take a look and let us know what you think!
The tutorial shows the basics but if you have any questions do not hesitate to call us at 203-852-9194 and we can help you with your weaving project. Be creative and have fun!
