Free Bead Loom Patterns: Beading Q And A (10/14/2011)

Bead Loom

Bead Loom


How do I tie off the ends of a bead loom when the beads have been taken off the loom?

I just started to bead loom and I completed a pattern but I never tied off the ends to secure the beads. How can I do this now that the pattern has been taken off the loom

BeadGal answers:

It’s easier, as you say, to do it while on the loom, but you can still secure the ends. Probably the easiest to do is a simple overhand knot very close to the last row of beads. You will need to stabilze the item you made somehow so it doesn’t move, and then tie a knot in bunches of a couple to several threads at a time. If you want to make a neat ending, there are several good ways to do it… They take a bit of work, but may be worthwhile.

BeadGal answers:

Coyote’s Game Native American Indian Beadwork menu page. … In the creation of patterns typical of the Native Americans who created them:  www.coyotesgame.com/beadmain.html

Leggings attached to shoes have also been produced by Native Americans. Undecorated, but geometric bead and quillwork patterns often decorated them:  www.nativetech.org/clothing/moccasin/moctext.html
