What is it? – Bead weaving is Monet one pixel at a time. That legendary renaissance artist blended an exquisite pallet of pigments to create breathtaking landscapes. Now modern artists can align an exquisite pallet of bead shapes, sizes, colors and textures to create the perfect jeweled accessory for any occasion or application. The potential spectrum of personal expression is truly unlimited. Genius in its simplicity, the modern bead loom makes it all possible. It is the beading equivalent of Monet’s talented brush. The function of the loom serves to hold the warp threads in place, allowing the artist to attach selected beads with the weft threads in precisely the correct order and position required to achieve the creative design. Differing project sizes and shapes (even fringes) are easily accommodated. The breadth of bead colors, sizes, shapes and textures is extensive and still growing. All the artist needs to supply is the imagination. And, of course, a bead loom. And that’s where Clover comes in. Building from known requirements and recommendations from those who know, Clover has produced the quintessential bead loom with associated accessories to enable the loftiest artistic aspirations. Monet would truly be intrigued.
What does it do? -The Clover Bead Loom and accessories are designed to enable anyone at any skill level or any age to pursue this art genre that seems to grow in popularity every day.
Clover Beading Loom – The Clover Bead Loom is a cleverly constructed looming tool that makes the physical setup and manipulation of the beading project simple and precise.
