Beading Loom

A beading loom setup to weave seed bead accessories like necklaces, bracelets, anklets, earrings and small pouches.

This S$19.90 kit comes with a pretty pink loom that even has tension setting, seed beads, findings, wire and needles. The instructions are pretty basic and you don't really need it, most beading looms come without instructions anyway.

To set it up, you wind the wire/thread round the entire loom through those tiny little grooves, secure the ends with a dead knot. This is where tension setting comes in handy as you can dial up the tension to make the lines taut again.

Thread a needle with another piece of wire, tying one end of it to the loom. This connects the 2 pieces and you are now ready to weave seed beads into any pattern you desire.

I made my bracelets in classic friendship band style. You know, chevron stripes, diamonds, basket weave and monogrammed.
