I told you so!

As I was packing beads and way too many kits to haul off to Convergence where we had a booth in July, Elena said:  “These are fiber weavers.  They are not going to buy beads and kits.”

“Sure they will,” I said with complete certainty.

Guess who was correct?  Turns out the customers at Convergence were looking for . . . drum roll . . . LOOMS.

The good news is I didn’t haul that much stuff.  There isn’t really enough to put on the website, so I thought I would list them here.  All you have to do is add up your total and send a PayPal payment to: [email protected].  Shipping is $6.00 no matter how much you buy, so please remember to add that.

First Deal:

Eleven five gram tubes of those amazing CzechMates.  These beads all have two holes and YES you can weave them on a Mirrix Loom.

What can you do with these beads and a Mirrix Loom?  I’ll show you.

A combination of super duos and size 8/0 beads on a leather cuff.


Weave this on a hand-painted silk warp.  You can find the silk here.  The beads are a combination of ChechMate Tile beads and Superduos as edging.


This last one is a little wild. Silk warp and a combination of every bead in this collection.  I threw in some porcelain beads at both ends.  Yes, it was fun to weave and just as fun to wear.


Here are the beads:   The colors are beautiful.  Some are mixes I made and some are single colors.  You’ll love them all and then work really well together: 1 box each of 6mm Lentils,  3/6 mm bricks, 5/16 mm two hole daggers; 2 boxes each of 5/16 mm triangles and 6 mm tiles; 4 boxes of Superduos (my favorite!).  Eleven 5 gram boxes in all for $35 (plus $6 shipping).  The bad news is there are only five bags of these beads left.



In case you are not aware of the shape of these beads, I borrowed some photos to show you:  365-36 371-06 366-06 364-25 280-516 250-66


I thought I would play with the Tapestry/Bead Cuff Bracelet’s size both beads and cuff.  Instead of using size 8/0 beads, I wanted to use 11/0 beads.  The cuff became a 3/4 inch cuff versus a one inch cuff.  The spring is a 14 dent spring instead of a 10 dent spring.  It’s a finer version of the original cuff and I am sure someday we will get around to listing it on the website.  But if you want it now (price $69 plus $6 shipping) you can order by just making a payment to our  paypal account: [email protected]  We have nine of these kits available, but if they are popular we will make more!



Kit includes: two 3/4 inch brass cuffs, hand-painted silk, novelty yarn, 20 grams of 11/0 seed beads,C-Lon beading cord and thread, E-6000 glue, ultra-suede.


If you have any questions, please feel free to email me at: [email protected].  Flat shipping $6 even if you buy them all.
