  1. Thank you for this tutorial, I now understand the sewing on technique of the backing. Your videos are quite clear you are a great tutor …Thank you again

  2. Me podrías decir que pegamento usas o enfocar la cámara para verlo …y donde lo compras ? Gracias por tus videos

  3. The glue that is used in this video is called E6000. You can get it on Beadaholique . com's website. The links for the supplies in this video are located in the video description underneath the video.

  4. Could you demonstrate how to end bead loom if you are making a bracelet and not putting it on a backing? I can't find anything on You Tube on how to do this.

  5. Finishing loom work without a backing can be challenging because it's hard to weave all of those threads into your beads. It will really only work if you are using larger beads. I have a project in progress that will do this, and instructions will be up on Beadaholique's Free Projects page soon. Check back for the Hope Bracelet, project B1044, which will walk you through finishing a loom bracelet made with 6/0 seed beads without a backing.

  6. Any idea of how to put this sort of bead work onto thick leather (think of bridles, breast collars and other horse tack)? Also with it being on a horse there will be a lot of abuse and shaking on the piece, what would you suggest would be the best method of attaching it?

  7. My expertise is jewelry making, and unfortunately, I do not have any experience applying bead work to items like those you mentioned. I wouldn't know the best way to attach it to thick leather. Good luck, I hope you can find the information!

  8. I put resin over loomwork in project R1005 the Summer Sizzle Ring. You can check it out in the free projects section at Beadaholique . com. The link for it is located in the video description underneath this video.

  9. my first one was not bad my second i tried weaving the needle back through and my third i used this strategy. i thought that my third was the best!!!! also i don't cut the ends because the string i use stretches a bit so i re-tie it every once in a while. thanks for helping!!!!

  10. You can get the Silver Plated Ribbon Pinch Crimps Cord Ends and Silver Plated Chain Necklace Extender With Ball End on Beadaholique . com's website. The links for the Evening Romance Ribbon Choker and supplies in this video are located in the video description underneath this video.

  11. Thank you so much for this tutorial. I bought a loom a few years back and only started using it this year. I'm officially hooked. I love it, and I've just finished my first project. My own design, off centered triangles down the side. I backed it to felt. Now I want to make something else. Thank you for all the tutorials on the bead loom. Xxx

  12. If you desire to put the loom weaved bracelet on leather, should there be an intermediate backer before attaching it to the leather?  Please advise me on this if you can & thanks for the video! It was very helpful.

  13. Great tips!  I would just add that to keep glue off of fingertips when applying it to the back of your piece, I would use Q-tips to spread it around.  You could also use Q-tips to apply the glue, or a toothpick (as you've used).  I've also used (half) a bobby pin or cut the head off of a Q-tip to apply glues.  You can get a nice, precise application using these tools – but using Q-tips to spread glue will keep it off your fingers!

  14. P.S. – to add to the tips I posted below, as you're using the Q-tips to spread glue around, hold the piece in place with another Q-tip or a toothpick.  Also use the Q-tip to smooth your strings down into the glue.  All of this avoids getting glue on your fingers.

  15. Did you ever read the warnings on the E6000 glue? I use it but am a lot more careful not to get it on my skin or breath in the vapors after reading the tube. Just an FYI.

  16. Thank you! I’ve had two projects fall apart on me so far 😂 tutorials are so much more well explained than the one I found which I swear is from the early years of YouTube 😳
