  • How many in one go?

    I place orders to get beads for a necklace and a few unrelated bits.
    I wait days for the goods to arrive, then after half an hour/an hour Ive made a necklace!
    Then what do I do??!!

    How many necklaces/pieces worth of beads/products do you buy in one go?

    For me it depends. I have a few pieces that always seem to sell, so if I'm buying beads for those, I usually buy enough to do 2 or 3. Sometimes I buy beads just cos I like the look of them, then spend weeks deciding what to do with them. My favourite thing just now is glass pendants, I've bought 4 and I've only made one necklace, which didn't turn out how I wanted, so I've taken it apart again.

    My worst thing is going into a bead shop for one thing and coming out around £30 lighter, cos I just had to have other things!

      Do you mean glass pendants as in slide pendants?

          i buy too much when ever i order beads, i've got that much jewellery making stuff i've filled my storage

          and now i make my own beads it's even worse cause i end up buying stuff to go with them instead of making beads to go with what i've got, lol

            Not sure what a slide pendant is, but this is the kind of thing I mean.

                I think she means that with beads they are easy to put into your pocket and you can walk past darling husband (DH) without him knowing that you've spent lots of money! Unlike card making stuff.......

                  Ahh, I see...

                  Only thing is, he tends to come with me and is always like"oh, thats nice", "those go really well with that"... I think he spends half my money for me. Can't really complain though, he's come up with some really nice designs for me!

                    Do what mine did - gave me pocket money and told me to go and buy my own!
