Beading Instructions from Beading Daily: 5 Free Beading Projects to Learn How to Bead

Aug 6, 2010


­We all started at the same place . . . the beginning. Each one of us held beading wire in one hand and a pile of beads in the other, and we began to bead! It's amazing where the jewelry-making path takes us after this hope-filled start. Each beader makes different stops along the way: Some embrace crystals, others gemstones with every other bauble thrown into the mix. One day you don't know how to bead, the next day you are an official "beader," and life as you knew it changes forever more.

Everyone needs a place to start, so I'm excited to introduce this new collection, Beading Instructions from Beading Daily: 5 Free Beading Projects to Learn How to Bead. I handpicked these simple projects to get the whole world beading. No excuses! Starting with these easy stringing projects will allow you to enter a whole new world and infuse you with confidence and technique know-how to keep on beading. Download your FREE eBook today!

Gothic Arabesque, by SaraBeth Cullinan, is three times the fun with triple strands and uses the same simple stringing technique. The fabulous shell pendant enhances the crystal and bead palette in an understated, yet elegant way.

Trés Turquoise by Marlene Blessing is a blue-lover's delight. You simply can't go wrong with silver and turquoise in my book! If desired, you can leave off the cross pendant for a simpler design.
