Bead Loom work with Erin Simonetti - Two day Class



Meet Erin........

When I was twelve years old, my Great Aunt made me a wooden bead loom, much like was seen in Native American Publications.  With some beads and string, I found my self beading, any and every chance I could get.

Since there were no books readily available, as there are today, to give patterns and teach techniques, I had to devise ways to utilize all the little strips of beads I loomed!  My idea of 3-D beading came to light!  This then created another dilemma of deciding how to secure my creations, decrease and ascend rows to accomplish particular shapes.  I also purchased a lot of graph paper to plan out my designs and color them accordingly.

I always enjoyed graphing large scenes and designs depicting flowers, birds and butterflies.  My first three dimensional necklaces were completed early in these times, but today I have proven finer techniques.  My goal was always to use glass seed beads, 11/0, 15/0, 22/0 and smaller, create a realistic design, and mold them like clay to make wearable art.  Some people have commented that my work looks like painted fabric and not beads!  Lately, I find as much satisfaction from building in a three dimensional form as I do graphing a pattern, in a 2-D format, showing depth of a 3-D picture.
