Who says you have to BUY your beads?
Sometimes I find it almost impossible to find a bead in the material or color I want to use. But what’s a gal to do?
Make your own!
I’ve had a couple of ideas in mind for making some of my own beads lately and it got me to wondering if I could find some other bead making tutorials out there on the web.
I’ve rounded up some of them to share with you.

Funky Fiber Beads from Feathered Nest Studio

I hope that next time you are stuck with leftover materials or in need of beads with a certain texture or color that you will consider making your own.
