where can i buy a great beading/jewelry making kit?
willing to spend up to $100 needs to have everything i would need to make jewelry as i have no supplies.
Most craft stores sell kits that sometimes include everything you need to make a few projects. My advice is, if you’re planning on beading to make money, pass on the kits. Pick up a couple of beading magazines (not pricey books), and buy a set of tools plus a crimping tool. Next step is to talk to a sales person at the craft store (I can recommend both Michaels and AC Moore). Decide what it is you want to make and get help from the associate with your purchases. If the store offers beading classes, TAKE AT LEAST ONE! Once you are familiar with the basic techniques, spend your money on quality beads. Note on wire….when making a necklace or bracelet, the supplies may list beading wire. This usually refers to “tiger tail” and not a stiffer wire. Tiger tail requires crimp beads, and using crimp beads takes practice.
To Jackie B. You’re joking, right? Wal-Mart will do in a pinch. It would not be my first (or 2nd or 3rd) recommendation for beading supplies.
