  3. Yes, this is an off loom needle weaving technique. You need only a piece of foam core board, bank pins, your original design, some pearl cotton yarns and beads of your choice. Yarns are woven with a tapestry needle following the pattern of your design. If you have a handweaving guild in your area, you may find an instructor there. Diane Fitzgerald and Helen Banes’ book, “Beads and Threads” gives excellent instruction with clear diagrams on how to weave these necklaces as well. You can purchase the book through amazon.com: http://www.amazon.com/Beads-Threads-Technique-Fiber-Jewelry/dp/0962054364/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1255788137&sr=1-1
