1  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / wood and twine necklace on: May 08, 2006 01:14:09 PM
hello there: this a necklace that i really wanted to make, originally is by BeaG  https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=88556.0
but she used crocheted beads, so since the only thing that i know in crochet is just the simple chain, i had to improvise, so  got my wooden beads at wallmart and i just glued twine from the dollard store around the beads, with tacky glue, then i made a long chain with the same twine that later i passed trough the beads and voila!

this is a close up of the beads..
thanks for looking and thanks BeaG for this idea!! Cheesy

i have been beading and making jewerly for the past six months, i have sold mostly of my jewerly to friends and relatives, and i want to take this to the next level having a small shop or selling in crafts fairs or designing a web site, how many people i have not a big budget to begin with, what i sell i reinvested it buying more beads and supplies, now my question is how to buy to biuld a biger inventory? do i buy a bunch of beads and supplies and trying to work with it or plan every single item and just buy what i need?
your suggestion will be truly appreciated
