White #Wedding #Flowers Wearable #Art, New #MirrixLooms Project, 5th #BeadALong and Comment to Win!

I finished it!! YES, I did!!  I was even able to get some great photos!!  What do YOU think?? It would be perfect for a wedding, or over a black turtleneck in the winter…or just on some tan skin for a special night out!! So many ways to wear it!

White Wedding Flowers Beadwoven Necklace Set

And of course, with the finish of one creation I get to start another one!!  Today I am starting on a new project on my Big Sister Loom with the No Warp-Ends Kit as part of the Social Marketing Program from Mirrix Looms.  I have designed a pattern from a piece of artwork from one of my favorite artists – Katerina Art (Katerina Koukiotis).  I am so excited about using one of her drawings!!  As I looked through her beautiful art (many of which I have) I had to find – just the right one – and boy did I!!  You can go through her page and find it….or wait and I’ll SHOW you!!  She is excited to see what I do with this ‘version’ of her art too! 🙂

But as I got ready to warp up the loom last night I ran into a few things that I either didn’t know how to do and/or couldn’t find a video to show me how!!  I started out using the S hooks that came with my kit, but quickly got frustrated with them falling off – my pattern is 88 beads wide!!  Then I found the ‘paper clip’ way and got started right off!  Again, there are some things that I had to ‘tweek’ or change, but I’ll go over them all as we go along!  I would love to help answer all the question I had for YOU….that way you will know how to do them when you get to this point!!

Are you ready?  I know I am!!  Here are the colors that I am using….notice that they are on a different tray than I usually use….I will NOT be pulling lines from the pattern for the loom.  But instead I’ll be picking up the beads one row at a time directly only the 4 inch needle!!   If you aren’t sure how to actually do the beadweaving I will be attempting a video in the next month or so on how it is actually done!!  But for today, let’s get started!! Please remember, you can check out my Facebook Fan Page, Google+ Page, or my Instagram Page throughout the day to watch updates and working photos.
