We had so much fun this week with our dual coast Facebook Live with Julianna C Avelar , inventor of the Baby Jewel Loom and Mama Jewel Loom . The Baby Jewel Loom is a great choice for beginning Loomers (like me!) because it’s always in the warp position – you don’t have to worry about getting the correct tension with the Rod like with the Mama Loom. It’s great for quick, smaller projects – and you can also make larger projects by sewing together multiple pieces. Check out Julianna’s latest book, Jewel Loom Inspirations for more project ideas. For this project, I used Size 6 Czech Seed Beads and 26 Gauge Champagne Artistic Wire . You can use all types of materials with the Looms, including (but not limited to) Leather Cord , WildFire , Hemp Cord , Beading Thread, Ribbon, Nymo and B-Lon . Pro Tip: To best thread WildFire onto the Jewel Loom Needle (or any needle), first use flat nosed pliers to flatten the WildFire. Then it should slide through the eye of
