I LOVE everything about Delicas and Artbeads had a decent price on them as well as selection
Until last year, I had never beaded anything. I first tried looming. I didn't do so well, since I really didn't know how to finish my work. I showed a couple of pieces on FB and my husbands friend basically ridiculed my work, and told me once she was shown how to....it was JUST SO EASY. She sent pictures of her work...which I have to admit, was pretty nice.
I explained that I didn't have the luxury of an elder or friend to show me how to bead, but would work at it. My friend was my computer. I found sites that showed me different stitches and worked and worked, AND WORKED at making better items. I found sites that gave me free patterns, and also free graph paper, and of course, ebay. I was intrigued with the Delicas and therefore, after looking and looking, I found ARTBEADS, and I found your supply of Delicas.
I am not so sure if learning to bead with seed beads and then Delicas was the lesson in patience, or if the lesson of patience was/is via my husband.....as I plan to purchase many more colors to 'practise' with.
Ask me how I am doing in a couple of more months...I think I am doing awesome, considering...and I truely thank ARTBEADS for having so many supplies to look forward to learning with.
