I have a secret. I have bottles, boxes, baggies, and containers of beads all over the place. I love making bracelets, earrings, beading crochet items, and on and on. I can't wait for other ideas and links to flow into the new forum :yippee:

Missy, so does dd. She absolutely loves beads and has them stored everywhere in her room. Her dad even had to make a special box just for her beads.

I have a "few" beads here too! I really need to make time to make a necklace and a bracelet, I keep putting it off. I found a bead store while on vacation last week in Maine, and I spent an hour in there. I lost track of time and "forgot" Mike was waiting for me in the car--oops! I got some cool beads, hoping to make a necklace with them.

Do you shop on-line? Can you recommend a cheap Bead web page?
I don't live close to anything and don't go to "The City" very often.
Thanks,

I shop at firemountaingems.com and 2beadornot2bead.com

I think both of these have a great selection and decent prices.

I'm new to beading and I think I'm IN!!

Made a really cool beaded bookmark. It was so easy even an uncrafty girl like me could get creative. Doesn't get much cooler than that!

I haven't ever tried beading but while sorting out the craft room I found "how to" books and lots of beads and a beadwork kit. I just love sewing and quilting and now learning to crochet. I think I will sit down and try to do it and see how it goes and then decide but think I will need a pair of glasses first, lol.

I have lots of beads from Fire Mountain Gems that my MIL bought. I went there online yesterday and ordered their new catalog for free. Says it has over 600 pages! I'm hoping to find out what some of the beads are called as the packages are not marked.

beads-luv em them!

Beads are like " eye" candy to me. I can't get thru walmart, michael's or my beading catalogs without drooling! I found a site that has good prices on charms, but not much of a selection. Now just getting started is my problem. I am still trying to figure out how to corrdiante my beads, charms ect. into book marks bracelets ect. Tara

I have patterns for those shades in my victorian and silk embroiderie books. I have been beading tops with crystal and glass beads for years and I make metaphysical based beaded chains and ankle bracelets - my secret weird activity.
