years and years ago i got an interest in bead working after buying some assorted Indian glass beads,  the little turquoise ones and no two are alike in shape,   anyway this is just a few ive found in the basement here.  then i had this really cheep loom    and made a few hat bands and some odds and ends stuff,  wouldent mind starting up again using a better loom or beading tools.

Welcome to the forums You said you wouldn't mind starting up again. So, what's holding you back? Use what you have until you can afford better. Then buy better. There is lots of inforamtion to be had here from basic tools, supplies and basic instrutions and free patterns. Just look around and if you can't find what you're looking for just sing out. There is always someone willing to give a hand and share their experience. I hope you will drop in often and chat. see ya in the posts

Much better starter kit than I had in the beginning. It was in the 60's. I used my mothers needles and thread, which wouldn't even fit through a lot of the super duper cheapy beads that 10 year old kids can afford........... And you could only buy them in mixed colors. I had tons of rings, all the same colors! I can't even imagine where I even learned what to do with them. But now I know I was using right angle weave, and peyote stitches. Which is funny, as the right angle really threw me for a loop when I started beading again. I guess when we're young, nothing tells us "Stop and find out what the he11 you're doing, first"
