  • Addicted to beads!!! help!

    Hi ya,

    Just felt the need to share this, I am new to this forum and hoping I could find some people that can relate to this.

    I cant stop buying beads!! The thing is the addiction is taking over, I am currently off sick at the moment and on a VERY low wage because of it. I should really not be buying things like beads and jewellery making supplies, because I have my bills to pay, which my current sickness salary can barely cover! What do I do? Please tell me there are others out there that sacrafice important things like visa bills and food bills for buying beads!?
    I'm just hoping that I can sell some of my jewellery soon, otherwise I will have to bead myself a little shelter

    Can we start a support group for fellow addicts?

    Yours a fellow addict

    There's a secret to controlling the buying habit - only go for the best quality stuff, not just because they look pretty! You'll find you buy less, but what you buy will be worth selling!

        Ah yes Beadsage, I would actually like to hold you responsible for my spend last night!
        I was reading your thread about beads direct, and I thought I have not been on there, so took a nose and well a basket full later I typed in the dreaded card details! lol. Oh well... excited about my package arriving! Got a couple of fairs coming up so fingers crossed these nice beads will reap benefits!

          Hahahaha isn't that always the problem when you get interested in something you enjoy! It could be worse, you could be addicted to chocolate or something

              You could always do what the Catholics do....A few Hail Marys together with an Our Father...That will get rid of the black spots on your soul... and you can start all over again.. YEH!!!!!!

                      Hmmm you could be onto something there! lol

                      Only thing is i'm not catholic, where does that leave me? Do I need to convert? Maybe then I could have my swarovski rosary, do you think thats a good enough reason to become catholic?

                      I'm feeling a little better about my spending the last couple of days had a very successful jewellery evening, and made over £100! (very chuffed!).
                      So what will I being tomorrow? You guessed it.... buying more beads! Well I have to restock!

                      P.s. very glad to see I am not alone!

                            Me too! I have spent some serious amounts of money in last few years on beads and related stuff - tools, books, fancy boxes to keep all said beads in. Not sold nearly enough jewellery to cover costs.

                            Have got stacks of random beads now that I just don't know what to do with! Am trying my hand at bead weaving to try and use some of them up...

                            am being pretty strict with myself now as all spare cash has to go towards paying for the wedding. Am sure I'll be back in full bead buying mode the day after it though
