Itty, bitty beautiful beads
By Susan Lockhart
Special Projects Coordinator
WORLAND — With filaments so fine you need black paper behind them to see
them, beads so small you have to lick a finger and press it into the
beads to pick them up, and a needle so thin if you drop it on the floor
its worse than locating a dropped contact, Worland High School art
students were bead weaving this week.
Students in Pam Greek’s fiber arts and jewelry class warped their tiny looms with spiderweb-thin filament that looked like extreme fishing line Wednesday morning to begin their beading projects. And though you don’t always associate art and math, the students put their math skills to work creating colorful designs on graphing paper before producing the same pattern in beads.
As Greek demonstrated how to begin the projects, she told the kids with a laugh, “It’s one of those don’t-ask-just-trust-me sort of things.” She showed them how to pull the filament under the loom threads, add the miniscule beads to the needle in the order shown on their graph, push them onto the filament, use a finger to push the beads up into the warp filaments — one bead between each thread — and finish the row by threading the needle back through each bead on top of the warp threads.
Once the first few rows were finished, the projects quickly took shape with patterns appearing on the loom rather magically.
Greek said the class spent last week warping and wefting looms to create large projects — bags, wall hangings, rugs — to get the feel of working on a loom before taking on the miniature beading project. The large woven projects can be viewed in the art class’s glass case across from the Little Theater.
