  • Board for yarn/twine jewellery

    Hi,

    Anyone know of a place (online) that seels jewellery making kits? I'm particularly after a board - something to hold onto ends of yarns.

    Even the right terminology would help as I don't seem to be getting anything in my searches.

    thanks in advance

    when you say 'something to hold onto the ends of yarn' do you mean something to put on the end of your stringing material to stop the beads coming off

    if so i think Bea has some beadstoppers

    you can get beadboards from ebay or beads direct has some bead mats that stop your beads rolling around everywhere

    i hope i've helpped in some way

      I am wondering whether you mean a loom? Usually made of wood, you weave threads and end up with an armband type of thing with a pattern ... ... ...

          Thank you for responding. Sorry I didn't explain myself better.

          I will be doing macrame type weaving/knotting, so I need a board to hold down the twine/yarn whilst i work on the piece.

          I could probably make something, but wondered if there were proper boards for this type of thing. I've had a search and haven't come up with anything - I may just have to head over to B&Q.

            Have a look at that link, it'll give you an idea of what a loom is, this company seem to have two sizes, maybe if you ring them, they can advise you?
