Focusing specifically on loom bead weaving, this book provides extensive information on building a loom, loomwork techniques, and design techniques. Beginning with a brief history of Native American and African beadwork, it also explores European bead manufacturing. Special attention is paid to Native American beadwork, including wampum and glass beads and box, bow, heddle, and Apache looms. Step-by-step instructions and illustrations are provided for the entire weaving process, including loom construction, warping, basic weaving, weaving triangles, finishing, and correcting mistakes. A section on contemporary loomwork includes 40 unique works--ranging in size from a tiny amulet bag to a wall hanging of the Boston skyline that contains 190,800 beads--by 20 different artists.
