Mirrix Looms

Mirrix looms are precision built of aluminum, copper and stainless steel to be both lightweight and sturdy. As a weaver, I was impressed with the strength of the loom, it's versatility and the ease with which I can transport work in progress.

Claudia Chase, a professional weaver designed the looms for her own use. Beadweavers soon found that using a Mirrix loom to make beaded tapestry reduced the work involved by allowing a "one pass" system where the shedding device allows a row of beading to be completed in one pass rather than requiring a "locking row".

In effect, the shedding bar produces a flexible, tight tapestry weave from Miyuki and 11/0 beads which is far tighter and more flexible than standard beadwoven tapestry. By warping with a continuous warp you can rotate the weaving as it progresses. The working area is easily accessible for you to slide a hand into and the tension is "self-adjusting".

All looms come with detailed instructions that are very easy to follow.

8" Mirrix Loom (no shedding device)
This loom comes with 14 epi coil for delicas, one fold out leg and can produce a piece measuring 5" x 26". Weaving on this loom is classic tapestry technique, requiring locking in the beads as they are woven. This Lani loom weighs less than 3 pounds. The 3-D piece shown in the photo is based on a technique I learned from Diane Fitzgerald and was used as an embellishment epaulette on a jacket. The jacket won 2nd place at the 2002 Embellishment Gleaming Treasures (mixed media) exhibit!
