Bead Stringing Basics
Monday, Jan. 23, 6:30
Nora Pero, instructor

Probably the first beading ever done was someone running a string of some kind thru a shell or stone. Today, stringing beads for a necklace, bracelet or earrings remains the most popular use of beads. It provides an infinity of combinations from pony beads to gemstones and almost instant gratification as it can be done quickly. Whether you are a beginner or an accomplished beader, this meeting/workshop will help you advance your skills.

Instruction will include use of tools, selecting findings, and design. If you don’t have all the needed tools, you can borrow at the meeting and learn what you want to acquire.

Bring your beads, findings (clasp, bead caps or spacers if desired), SoftFlex beading wire or similar product, crimps, crimping tool, pliers, wire cutters, mat and/or bead board if desired.
