History of the Bead Loom

The bead loom is a Native American invention that came about quickly after Europeans began trading with beads. Native American women invented two techniques for creating art with the beads: off-loom weaving and bead loom weaving. With these looms, they were able to create beautiful jewelry and adornments for clothing. Their designs often had four-fold symmetry, meaning they were symmetrical left and right as well as top and bottom. You would recognize these kinds of designs as they are still popular today.

Beading wasn’t only for decorative purposes; Native Americans also used beading to record historical moments. Through images and symbols, they would represent events or even record messages. The art form they created is still used today and has become a popular part of western culture. You can find bead loom designs with Native American influence in today’s clothing, jewelry, and bags. You can create your own jewelry and designs with your DIY bead loom.
