Bead stringing tutorials

One of the first beading techniques that most people learn is how to string.  After moving on to bead weaving, bead embroidery, and mixed media techniques, some of us forget about that thrill that we got when we first learned how to string a pleasing necklace..  We forget how exciting it was to learn how to finish off a piece with a polished-looking closure.  Never forget the basics!
