There are so many different types of looms, and I’m afraid you have to actually try 1 or 2 of them before you’ll know which one you like best. I was quite happy with my little wire one with the wooden end pieces for quite a while, but I did have to straighten out the end frames before it was long enough to make bracelets and bookmarks for me and my friends.

This is the first one I had wire-loom-small It was simple to use, and gave me lots of beading and designing practice until I moved up to a similar loom, but bigger. I made most of my early work with size 10/0 Czech seed beads – they have such a huge range of colours!
