Beading as a hobby

Jewellery-making has only become a recent interest of mine.   Although not a cheap hobby, I find that if you spend a little money to get the best beads, it is worth it!
Tools needed:   Jewellery making elastic ( I find for bracelets, elastic is more reliable than beading wire), & some good quality beads!

I LOVE crackle glass beads!!

Celestial jewellery

My favourite piece

The moon charm gives this piece character

Millefiori beads were used with this necklace ( I  personally call them 'rock' beads, as they resemble 'cut sticks of rock' with a pattern permeating throughout the bead)


I highly recommend the following sites for bead supplies:




 Invest in some craft storage boxes and you will be able to organise your beads more easily.
