Bead Weaving

Over the last fortnight I’ve discovered the joys (and frustrations) of bead weaving, using mostly seed beads.  There are many free patterns on the internet, and Jenny has several books.  In terms of complexity, it’s certainly challenging!  Far more patience is required, too.  Making jewellery with gemstones is a wholly different activity.  There may be areas where you have the choice between man-made or natural, but there are definitely times when man-made is the only option.  If you’re interested, I recommend visiting Sandra Halpenny’s site.
