On an earlier post I wrote that I was going to have a go at beading. I have seen some wonderful blogs that have given me the inspiration to have a go at this craft. I have 2 favourites they are Triz Designs and Smadar's Treasure. The pieces they produce are just amazing and I am sure I will never reach that standard. But anyway here is my first attempt, a beaded tube, hopefully the first of many. I used the book I bought but I also found it very helpful to go onto Youtube and watch videos of people beading.

ah thanks for the mention and the good wishes you left me :-)
I get so exited when someone tries beading... just be very careful... it is very, very, very addictive!!!! welcome to the madness ;-)

I visit those same beautiful blogs and find myself amazed and mesmerized at the intricate beading they accomplish. I love jewelry making but I don't think I have the patience (or the talent) to ever create the kinds of things they do. Good luck and I look forward to seeing your progress!

That blue bead is so cute!

There should be a warning printed on every package of those tiny beads. They're truly addicting!!!

Lucky for me (or not so lucky, depending on how you look at it), I was able to go to the Bead and Button Show in Milwaukee for several years. I missed this year, and my credit card thanked me.

It is very nice. I love the blue colors. I visit so many blogs, that have such wonderful information, and you tube is very helpful too. Good luck on many more beautiful creations.

Never say never... Your first attempt at beadweaving looks very promising.. And just keep in mind that we all started from... the start! :)
Thanks so much for the mention.
