Coasters? Wall hangings? Doohickeys? Whatcha-ma-callits? They were kinda fun.

Advice on Finishing Loom Pieces

Hello!

I need some advice on finishing loom pieces. I really like the look of tapering off, but it seems like it's super unstable once I weave things in, knot things, and eventually attempt to wear it. Also they always wind up a little lumpy at the ends. Any advice would be appreciated!

Anyone knows the pattern of these items?

Please help, my gf is doing beading for a few years, but cannot figure out the pattern of these. She has looked for it on the Internet, but couldn't find anything useful yet. She needs it for a wedding! Thanks! :)

new project

I've completed the beadwork, but one of the diamonds has the wrong color.🧐 Also, there's still the feather to attach, which is a bit troublesome.

Finsh this project,I still have 3-5 projects dont start……

Canada and wholesale websites

I was just going through my bookmarked websites (finally figured out how to create folders on an Android device), and came across a few in Canada and for wholesale. I've seen these questions asked before, so I thought I'd share here in case they've been missed in previous threads.

Canada: Northern Bead Company (recommended by Stephanie from Bronze Pony Beading) ibeadCanada.com

Wholesale: JewelrySupply.com

Does anybody know what stitch this is?

I had assumed tubular peyote but then I realized the beads spiral upward with peyote, and in this one they sit directly next to each other.

Where are all the rhinestone settings?!

First of all, I'm happy to be here. I'm going to get lost looking at all your gorgeous creations.

But I have a question. I want to make beaded brooches like the Russians. I can pretty easily find crystal, foil-backed rhinestones, but where are the sew-on settings?! I've scoured the English-speaking Internet to the best of my ability and found a few a Dreamtime Creations and a few at Potomac Beads, but that's it. How are people selling all these rhinestones, and I see all these people using rhinestones in sew-on settings, yet so few are selling sew-on settings? What am I missing?

Thanks, Alicia

How many projects could you make start to finish with what you have on hand without buying anything else?

I’m trying to break the habit of going by my local bead store everytime I have some extra money or free time. Typically, if I go by I’m spending at least $50. I’d tell myself I’m building my stock, I have to spend money to make money, getting things for new ideas, supporting a locally owned business, just wanting to look, haven’t been by in a while and want to talk to the owner ect. But honestly I’m just spending money when I don’t need to at that time & I would’ve lived without XYZ that I just bought lol. I have such a stock built up and could make probably 100 pieces without having to buy anything more than what I already have. I joke and say beading is my addiction but I’ve done better about not spending as much needlessly since I’ve put my foot down against myself. I understand getting new items is part of the fun but I seriously had to stop lol. How many projects could you make without buying anything else?
