I just started getting into making jewelry and my husband bought me, for a gift, the book "Jewelry Making and Beading for Dummies". I just got it last night and it's a really great book! I'm sure once I get the hang of making jewelry that I will still use this book as a reference. I was dreaming of making jewelry last night! My husband said I was talking about beads in my sleep! :)

I never even knew they made a "Dummies" book for beading. I going to have to look for it next time I'm in the book store. I usually buy a Beading magazine or two every month. They have great ideas in the them and I love look at some of the creations these artists make with beads. I don't think I dream of crafting and creating, I probably dream of not having to go to work the next day...lol.

Look on Amazon for that book. My husband got mine for just a couple of dollars.

lol i did some beading for a while, its really fun past time as long as you dont have shakey hands! lol. I have no idea what happened to all my beads, i think that my mom gave them away when i moved away to another province. i guess i cant blame her for not wanting to hang on to all my junk lol. I also did candle making around the same time. That also is a neat hobby to get into and if/when you get bored of the beading you should give candles a try :)

I've thought about candle making. I have a friend who does it and he loves it and he's making a profit from it.

Oh thats it - you've caught it and it is a serious condition - The Beading Bug. It is something that once you have caught it you will have it for life! If you have been dreaming about creating and talking bead talk in your sleep it does have a grip on you but you know it totally has you when you not only dream and bead talk in your sleep but that you wake up no matter what time of night and you simply HAVE to create! I have been beading for many years now and I love it so much. Just wait until your designs just come to you - you won't need any books - only books where you scribble down your own unique designs because your hands cant keep up with your brain! haha
