As a beginner, i used the same glass beads for all my projects, and after some time I got bored. If I knew more about beading and had access to such information, i would have turned this hobby into a business. I mostly made the memory wire bracelet, but now I have an obsession with the beaded bobby pins

This is a very nice video for someone starting out in jewelry making. When I first started I had no idea which beads were better for certain things . I just grabbed the ones that looked prett you on me. I have come a long way since then and I wish I had seen this way back when. It would have saved me a lot of time and money. If you are making it for yourself you can spend a little extra but a bracelet for a child is different. They don't have to have Swarovski crystals, use acrylic or glass beads. The main thing is relax and have fun. If you get frustrated, put it down, do something else and cone back later.
