    Beading for dummies?

    My mum and I want to get into beading, with pretty glass beads and wires and those plier thingies, but we don't know how to do it. I'm wondering if anyone knows of some websites that explain the techniques that we could check out.

    A great site to buy from, and learn from is www.firemountaingems.com, they have a great instructional section. I would also recommend picking up a copy of Bead Style magazine. They have a great "glossary" of sorts that shows basic techniques, and shows clasps, pliers. etc.

    Beading, especially single stranded bracelets, necklaces and some earrings, is pretty easy to pick up for the most part. Feel free to ask any questions :)

    I started beading about a year ago and learned almost everything I needed from About.com (http://beadwork.about.com/) they have instructions on how to do most basic stitches and lots of projects.
