Crazy Beading 101:
The ‘secret’ is… making jewelry is ALWAYS pleasurable!
If, during your creative moment, anything causes you frustration,
physical discomfort or the dreaded sense of ‘defeat’… just stop.
Put your beautiful beads down, put your jewelry tools down, breathe…
and reassess. Ask yourself the simple question, “why is this so hard?”
Then check the obvious…
1. Are you using the proper jewelry tools?
2. Are you using the jewelry tools properly?
3. Are your materials compatible? For example… if it’s almost impossible to thread your beads through your Soft Flex, then check to see what SIZE you’re using. Soft Flex line comes in Fine, Medium and Heavy, each line being thicker than the next. Perhaps you’re using Medium Soft Flex when the hole in your beads is suited for Fine line?
4. Do you need to learn the basics? Or just refresh your beading skill set?
