Never forget the basics! They are...well...basic to everything else you will learn in jewelry making. And stringing is one of the first beading techniques that most folks try. It's so easy and accessible, but you can make such amazing and unique pieces with the proper tools, techniques, and materials.
What happens is that then many of us move on to bead weaving, bead embroidery, and mixed media jewelry making, and we forget that first thrill. Let's not be that person!!
If you are a beginner beader, you've picked the right month to get started: All this month, we're going to cover both basic and innovative stringing and look at ways to make our pieces unique! I'll have a number of projects and featured artists for you, all designed to help you make your stringing projects unique. Do you have a piece you'd like to share, or have you written up a tutorial for an innovative stringing piece that will help take our work to the next level? If you'd like to share, please drop me a line at cyndi @ mazeltovjewelry.com (remove the spaces).
