Good morning! Isn’t everyone looking forward to spring…flowers, warm breezes and pretty colors. I know I am so for my Jewel Loom project this month I pulled out a multi-colored mix of 6/0 seed beads and got to work! Just working with these beauties made my heart sing and of course working on the Jewel Loom made it even better!!!
When I started the Jewel Loom process I wasn’t quite sure where I was headed, which is not unusual. I warped the Jewel Loom with White Beadalon Wildfire thread, 9 threads for 8 beads.
As I was progressing I was thinking through how I was going to finish this piece. My eyes fell upon a brass cuff I’ve been saving and I knew what I wanted to create. Out came a piece of leather from my scrap pile and a tube of E6000. I realized that I wanted to hide the white warp threads as much as I could so I went back and created an edge with size 11/0 black seed beads and black Beadalon Black thread.
Here is my completed Jewel Loom Seed Bead Leather Cuff and I couldn’t be happier!
Thanks for stopping by. What are you going to create to beat the Winter doldrums?
