  • New Member and New Beader!!

    Hi All,

    I am new to all jewellery making, but wanted to start doing it, but I have not got a clue where to start??? I want to start making fashion necklaces (the type you buy in topshop etc) for my friends and family. I need not only a little inspiration but the best shops/websites to buy from for beginners.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated. xxx

      hello and welcome i also have just started beading made my first necklace and earings very simple just bead threading on beading cord that i got from a site from one of the forum members the people on here are very helpful and there sites are really good i think it could be very addictive as with the forum you find lots of useful tips on here and where to get anything you need for lots of crafts im going to purchase a book on the basics but there are a few beading magazines that give you step by step instructions and what you need check out whsmiths they seem to have a good selection and good luck with your jewellry making im sure you will enjoy it

        thank you girls, i will have a look at the books, might ebay it and see what comes up, i have resisted the magazine's so far, as could spend a fortune, but I might pop down to my local market, they have a magazine stall, might have some old crafting ones.

          Sorry Rebecca dont know anything about beads but from me anyway.

          What your local bead shop ? They helped my friend buy her first purchases and they ran classes too. At least that way you wont spend more than you have too.

          Good luck with it anyway.

          Cheers Janice

                    Take a look through Ebay

                    Hi,
                    Good luck with your jewellery making. I learned how to make it by looking at all the components you can buy on Ebay.

                      Hi,
                      what area are you in?

                      Buying on line is good, but you can't beat looking and touching! Prepare to be addicted and very poor!!!!

                      Going to a bead fair is a great way to look at things and match them up. I have a few in the midlands/wales area if any good, just let me know.

                      by the way!
                      With love
                      Em
