  • Bead Weaving help!

    Hi all,

    I'm just starting to do a bit of bead weaving but none of the books i have tell you how to add findings etc to your piece of weaving! Does anyone have any idea? I'm trying a very basic square stitch to start.

    Help!

        Peter's right, but it also depends on what you're actually making in square stitch. for example, you can also make a loop out of beads that hooks over a beaded 'button' on the other end, or sew soldered jump rings on to an end bead (soldered are good because the thread can't slip through the cut in the jump ring, but then you probably need to put an ordinary jump ring onto that in order to be able to add a fastener...!)
        Hope all that makes sense
