Project and Sample by Janice Parsons

Feel the freedom of looming with beads on your warp cords. It’s fun and adds interest and a new point of view. Strung on Regular C-Lon and using .5mm leather for weft texture, this design has so many options…including lengthening for a necklace!

Inspired by the new popcorn padres, Janice taught, “I can do this, can’t I? What’s stopping us from using the loom in a new way?” Nothing!

Watch Kate explain the looming and decorative weft process on 11.1.17’s FB Live Episode. Just pre-string your Padres before setting up your loom or deep dish tray. Leave a bit of free space on your C-Lon for your beads to “abacus” around. Use Zap glue to securely attach your design into the magnetic clasp.
