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.

Additional Learning:
Please Note: We find ourselves out of stock on the Mustard 8/0 Janice uses at both ends of her bracelet, and so we have added an alternate, Janice's second choice of Seafoam Picasso. Only 10 beads are used, so use her choice, or pick a favorite color of 8/0...with all the colors in the Popcorn Padres almost anything will do!...refer to the Ingredients List to the left, and easy shopping can be done with the Shop Tab above!
