    My Mother used to teach jewelry beading at a Senior Citizen center. She’d buy all the beads (“pearls”), string, needles, instructions, etc. and teach the ladies how to make all kinds of pretty necklaces. Unfortunately, they used to steal the beads from her and made her cry, so she stopped doing it.

    She taught me how to make the necklaces and over the years I’ve made lots from her original patterns. Last year, I gave my niece a beading kit to make jewelry for her friends for Christmas, since she didn’t have a lot of money.

    Now she’s beading too!

    I saw a video tutorial for making these on the club scrap web site, and then later found out all my girlfriends made them at summer camp when they were younger! Now I find out that they’re even older. They are really quite fun to make and lovely when they’re done.

    That’s awesome! We didn’t have such traditions in the family, but I remember we used to make beads from bread balls which we painted in various colours. It’s so nice to remember those childhood years!

  7. I know this if off topic but I’m looking into starting my own weblog and was wondering what all is required to get
    setup? I’m assuming having a blog like yours would cost a pretty penny?

    I’m not very web smart so I’m not 100% certain.
    Any recommendations or advice would be greatly appreciated.
    Thank you

  8. I used to be suggested this web site by my cousin. I’m
    now not positive whether this put up is written by him as nobody else recognize such distinct about my problem.
    You are incredible! Thanks!

    […] jewelry pieces that I’ve made.  I got the idea for trying the paper bead project from a CraftSanity blog post. On Jennifer’s blog she even has an awesome video of a TV segment where she […]
