I love making jewelry. So satisfing and calming.
There are so many options when you bead. I usually go to Walmart and Michaels for my beading pleasure. This set(on the right) I call Aqua Calm. The one on the left I call "Pink Passion"
You can find everything you need to make these sets at Walmart. The beads come in a kit with many colors and size beads. The ear wires come in a package of 50 for as little as 1.99. You will also need a package of headpins. Needlenose Plyers and a few spacer beads. Spacer beads can be purchased in many colors and sizes and usually are about 3.99 for as many as 50 beads on a string. It cost me about 3.00 to make this set. You can find some great beading tutorials on the web. Simply do a search "How to make a beaded necklace". It's amazing what's available.
I also like to check out "as seen on tvweekly .com". This site has many different videos to teach you how to bead, make a card and many more crafts.
