Don't worry if you do not have the funds to purchase nifty new looms like the new one, Endless Loom (see post here), which saves you from having to deal with warp ends. Tamara Allison, a reader and beaded jewelry designer, recently shared a great tip on how to finish loom bracelets on her site, the Vanishing Pearl. The traditional way of weaving all the thread ends in and out of beads was too tedious. Go to her tutorial and she explains the basic tip in Step 2.
If you check out her original post on this subject, you can see how she bent the work to expose the weft threads making it easy to insert the needle.
Tamara has also been experimenting with different ways of adding clasps. She doesn't think much of her wire experiment but I think she is on to something. Just needs some refinement!
