Beginner Series Part 5

Project 1- Bead-on-Wire Necklace, 3-Bead Ring, "Orbit" Bead Ring

“Beautiful designs don’t have to be elaborate and complicated to make.  This lesson contains the directions for three of my favorite, best selling projects.  Each of them can be made easily and offer a lot of design options.  Although stones are my first love, beads have been around since early man put a piece of sinew through the hole in a shell to wear around his neck.  And today there are so many different sizes, styles, colors and materials of beads to choose from!  Using techniques from lessons 1 and 3 and adding just a few more, many different neckpieces and rings can be created and customized, which will add more variety to your inventory.” Dale "Cougar" Armstrong
