Bead Loom Techniques

Beadwork refers to the techniques that usually involve weaving small glass beads onto thread. Beadweaving can be achieved either freehand (see pages 98-129) or using a bead loom. These techniques are long established in history, in many different parts of the world, especially amongst indigenous Americans and a variety of African societies.

Using a bead loom

When using a loom you can either work "freehand," designing as you work, or you can draw a graph first and follow it as you would an embroidery pattern.
