Opposite from seed bead loom weaving, string your chips onto the warp threads as you set up your loom; the wire will look like an abacus. I add the beads to the warp and not the weft so you only have to go through the bead holes one time, as opposed to going through the bead hole twice in traditional loom weaving. When your warp is strung with the chips, weave Accu-Flex beading wire as the weft, passing between the chips and the warp wires as a design element as well as for structure. The wire shows through between the beads and the result is a very strong and stunning piece. I have also made these cuffs using Swarovski crystals, 6mm rounds and 6mm Swarovski crystal pearls which also yield an amazing piece.
