Making moccasins is not the hardest thing in the world. Granted, they may not fit perfectly, so best to try a sample pair first before beading. Most of the commercial mox I have seen are split cow...

Shoes sold for $280.

As far as estimates go, I have a very simple format for loom beadwork. $2.5 per suare inch. That is for 11/o beads. Mounting a belt is $45. That encompases most of my work.

I don't know what to say about the strap and the hammer. As for price I'd say it's worth at least 4 chickens and a half pound of comodity cheese.

I agree that this is a great thread, lots of good "meat" to chew on. I won't comment on the whole copying issue and that has been well stated by many of you. I like the idea of "beadwork ethics"...

It's been almost 10 years since I was an undergrad, but I was a beading fool! That was actually my hey-day and where my style sort of came to me. We had a wonderful beadshop about 2 blocks from my...

I think loom (if done right) is just as fast and as durable as any other technique. But I have the biggest self proclaimed bias on this forum. At least I admit it. Either technique would be fine.

I know there is a trading post section, but I figure no one probably looks there for stuff like this. Plus, we don't get too many threads in this forum as it is.

If you are searching by "wampum stitch" I doubt if you will find anything as this is the first time I have heard it called such. Non-native beadworkers often call it "square stitch" or "off-loom...

Tibiki, Don't be so fast to judge everyone's loom beadwork based on the poor craftsmanship of others. I'll put my loom weaving up against any other form and I know many others who would do the same....

I don't understand your question. You don't knot a warp thread to another warp thread, that would look weird and I don't think it would work. 39 beads is a bit too long to end the first way I...
