  • The Lazy Beader: Bracelet Making Without a Clasp

    Yes, it's time for my first installment of The Lazy Beader. I mean, when you think about it, it's sort of a contradiction in terms, right off the start. I can't think of any beaders who are actually lazy -- beading takes a ton of time and skill, am I right? It's taken me almost fourteen...

  • 5 Cool Ideas For Hot Summer Necklace Making Projects

    I love making beaded necklaces, and when I sit down to design a piece, it's usually a necklace. For a few years, my necklace making projects were all big, bold, and showy -- the bigger, the better. But lately, I'm starting to think differently about how I like my necklaces. There's a lot...

  • 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...

  • 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. Seed beads and babies don't mix well, so I knew anything I made had to be sturdy and kept in a place that would be away from little grabby...
