121  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Beads: Completed Projects / My first time. Beware Img Heavy! on: August 21, 2006 08:05:19 PM
This is my first time posting my work here. I would really love some feedback on some of my stuff!

I think that is enough for my first post! All feedback is appreciated!

I think you mean these.......

These are called lentil bead caps and you can find them in a lot of bead stores and ebay. I love them because it allows you to have the finished look of a bead cap but you don't have to use a round bead. With these you can use rectangle, oval, etc.....

You could use another paper towel roll. Duct tape works on anything!

PVC pipe works the best but for a around the house option you could use an empty paper towel roll. I would stuff it so it is sturdier. Then you wrap it with whatever fabric you like. Its easy and inexpensive.

I use the surgeons knot with some glue but I will also string a crimp bead on before I tie it and crimp over the knot. This usually ensures that the knot will not  come undone.
126  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Discussion and Questions / Re: Basic Tools? on: August 05, 2006 09:10:05 AM
I could not live without my tools. The most basic things you will need are
1) Round nose pliers
2) Flat nose pliers
3) Wire cutting pliers

Those should allow you to do basically what you need to start. As far as other supplies to start out you should probably need:

1) Some kind of stringing material (Clear line, Tigertail, Wire...)
2) Clasps
3) Crimp Beads
4) Earring wires
5) Head pins and eye pins

There are tons of tutorials that you can find by googling.

The most important thing is to just practice and have fun! Everyone has to start somewhere.

Are you serious? That's crazy.....I have lived in Flowery Branch my whole life. Ugh. Makes me want to gag again.

I know it's been a while since anyone has replied to this but I am new. I live between Buford and Gainesville. Freaking home of the Falcons.....**Gag **
