Gold thread and bead weaving

I am taking the opposite approach to the concept of weaving fiber and beads.  Rather than set up the loom for tapestry and weave beads using the shedding device, I am setting up the loom for the traditional method of bead weaving and needle weaving in the fiber.  I am using just gold thread as my fiber in the two pieces I am working on. I am very pleased with the results.  I spent two days pondering this option before I finally got down to work and got something tangible on the loom.

The following piece is going to be a smart phone case:

And this one is going to be a bracelet:

I will have the bracelet off the loom and finished by tomorrow.  Stay tuned!
