    Default Beading/jewelry making!

    I had an intro to beading yesterday from my Auntie who has a craft shop and kitted me up with all kinds of goodies and her gorgeous friend who is so talented!

    I made a necklace with red beads and an amethyst one with matching earrings!

    Help me I can feel a new addiction brewing



    Anyone else into beading?

    Its addictive isnt it?
    I used to have 5 different types of pliers, reels of tiger tail and assorted beads, fittings an fixtures all over the house before I had DS. Once he came along it was a choice between the fabric and the beads, and the fabric won.
    I still love it though and used to make and sell jewellery.

    I have some beading tools and a huge amount of beads. Don't tend to make anything for everyday, but for my medieval & Viking hobby. Always on the hunt for the perfect bead for my collection.

    I went a little nuts for my besties hens night and made a tonne of necklaces, bracelets and earrings with the Swarovski crystal bicones for her pass the parcel game. I love beading but have to be in the right mood to just sit and bead.

    I wish I could weave with beads it looks so complicated.

    Would live to have the time to make enough and sell them at the local markets.

    Whats everyones fav type of beads??
