  • 5+ Ways to Store Beading Wire

    I remember buying my first spool of gauged wire. It was a little spool (maybe 30 feet) from my local bead shop. I needed a little piece for a jewelry project and I was ticked at having to buy so much. This was obviously a lifetime supply. I would never, ever use that much wire in my life. Yeah, right...

  • Easy DIY Necklace Holder for Under $4

    I'm sure that many of you can relate to this--I keep making more and more jewelry and am completely running out of places to store it! The problem is that I only wear a fraction of my necklaces because they are not in plain sight. Many of them are in piles--yes, piles, I'm ashamed to admit--in...

  • Seed Bead Savvy: Learn How to Get the Most Out of Your Seed Bead Finishes

    It's happened to the best of us: you pull together the beads for a new seed bead pattern, cut your thread, thread the needle, and begin to weave. About two inches into the beading project, you look down at what you're doing and realize that those colors look positively awful together. Yuck! What...

  • An Easy Beaded Square Stitch Magnet for a Last-Minute Gift

    One of my beadweaving friends recently had a baby. I wanted to make her a small gift that would showcase her love of beads and would be fairly quick to make.
