Beadalon's Jewel Loom made its debut at the winter 2012 Craft & Hobby Association Show. It got rave reviews and was picked as one of the Top 20 Hot New products for the year. Looms are used as a different way to weave beads together when you want to create bead woven jewelry using seed beads. If you have struggled with trying to stitch beads together free-hand, a loom is an option to consider. The Jewel Loom was designed by Jewelry Artist Julianna C. Hudgins to be portable and light-weight. You can find out more information about this product on the Beadalon web site.
