Hello all wanted to say hi and ask for help. I have been a bead collector for years and I now need a mentor to direct me in putting things in the right order and design. I have created a few things but I know there is room for improvement. If there is someone out there who is welling to share their knowledge and direction I would be for ever great full.
There is a lot of experience and knowledge available here, but beading covers a lot of ground. Perhaps you can be more specific what direction you want to go in? Embroidery? weaving? Stringing? If you read thru the forums, you learn a GREAT deal, and you'll be able to narrow down what you're after. Good Luck!
Thanks for the reply - what I am looking for is how to make great bracelets, earings and necklaces. I guess what that would be is stringing and then once I get good moving on to metal work and other things. I will start lookng through the forums to see if there is someone out there who can help me. Have a GReat Sunday.
Welcome Mary Ann,
Over on the right hand side of the home page here is a big listing of "free" books. I would think that could be a great starting point for your quest. Good luck with the new beading.
