There was a good beading thread a while back but it's gone now. It had a list of stores that sells beads in NYC. I want to start up, i guess i'll have to buy stuff online.

are there any good sites to buy beads online that are not too expensive?

Another beginner beader here. I plan on taking a class at a local craft store to find out more about bead size and threads. It seems kind of confusing but I guess you get the hang of it.

I am a seed beader.... i go on vacation tommorow and i plan on starting a belt (done on a loom) if and when i finish it i'll post a picture.

Edited to add:

Thanks for this post, it reminded me of the project and i reminded me to get some graph paper and color pencils

I'm working on earrings and bracelets as well as hair jewelry for locs, etc using different size beads. Experimenting has been fun. I'm going to get a book after work so I can work on wire wrapping techniques before I invest in the sterling silver.

I'll post pics when I'm done. Wonder if there is really a market for beade hair jewels... ;-) Guess we'll see. I'm enjoying it anyway

I used to make bracelets and stuff, I'm planning on making a beaded bag soon as I get done with my current quilting projects. I love beads!
