Beading on a loom

Recently I've bought a new book about loom beading. I could not wait to start something. I had some Delica beads left after one of the cross-stitch projects I've completed. As you my know Delica beads are uniformed and of a very good quality. You do not need to spend time culling.

Using pin loom is a great idea for tiny projects and you can use mashine embroidery thread.

Here is what I made out of my bead leftovers.
I enjoyed working with delica beads on the loom. Most probably I will do it again soon!

Minerva spiral lariat

I love this type of beadweaving.

It is 120 cm long. The coil is tight enough to create a simple twisted fastening that will hold together.

This lariat is for sale in my Etsy shop
