    You must have an enormous selection of beads–those all go beautifully together. I’m envying the Joann’s customers in your area.

      Thanks! But actually, the beads were all from the Joann’s store. It is rather fun to plan a project while pulling supplies right from the aisles. 🙂

    Hello Sandy,
    I love, love your video’s on youtube. I am a self taught beader and I’ve began by making Purse Charms, then graduated to Charm Bracelets. As I made these I found that people loved my work and began ordering them. Now I am trying to expand my knowledge, but I’m having a hard time understanding the metric system as opposed to inches. I never have been good at match..lol
    I have been making necklaces for a short time now and my critics say they are very nice, but I am now trying to make 3 layered necklaces and I’m really struggling with all the many findings to use as well as, the terminology which is driving me crazy…:-) I seem to be spending more time looking through every findings, and components ..ect… Is there any advise you could give me to help me? my confidence is taking a beating and I sure could use a boost by someone as professional and as knowledgeable as you!!

      Hi Val, Thank you for the nice comment. Good for you for working at your jewelry making and selling your pieces!

      I’m not sure what it is you are looking for as far as information on findings, but I think you will find my weekly series, Friday Findings, helpful. I’ve done over 100 videos on various topics about jewelry making tools, findings and supplies. You can look at the playlist here: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLg8Lpg6u0akgSxH9p6IL1d9x5InASIDfv and watch the videos on topics that interest you.

      As far as metric goes, it actually involves less and far easier math than the imperial system! I started to really get a grasp on it once I got myself an inexpensive brass caliper like this one: http://amzn.to/2gG51uT.

      Happy creating!

    Thanks for this great video. I’m 52 and am just taking up jewelry making. This step by step was so helpful. I bought all of the supplies before doing anything and now I just need ideas and direction. I will be watching more of your videos.
