Would you like to get started with beading? There are more varieties of beads and supplies available than ever before. When you search online or visit your local bead shop, the choices may seem almost overwhelming for a beginner. These four easy tips can help you set up the basics you need to begin making beautiful beaded jewelry and other crafts.
A beading box is a little bit like a mirror. It reflects the state of mind of the beader that owns it. When your box is neat and tidy, it is easy to think clearly about your next project; by the same token, a messy box does not bring any clarity.
Buying beads is the first thing on the mind of most people who are diving into the hobby of bead jewelry making. Still, to turn those beautiful pieces into wearable jewelry you will need to buy much more than just beads. Here are a few tips for covering all of your bases with bead jewelry tools and other basics.
Our latest design project is going to show you a new way to work with 1.5mm leather cord. This bracelet combines 1.5mm leather with 5.7mm Rollo Chain to form the base of the design. Connecting your toggle just takes a couple of jump rings, and you have a bracelet.
This project can easily be completed by a beginner with the right tools. Our only suggestion is that you've had experience opening and closing jump rings. Once you've got that down, the rest starts to fall in place pretty easy. I should probably also mention that if you haven't worked with super new glue before, a little bit goes a long way.... lets get started.
