5 Great Reasons to Start Beading Today



Compact and Friendly

The first two great things about beading are; 1.) It takes up very little space in your home, and 2.) you can bead and still be social with your family and friends. You don’t have to “go away” or have a special room to bead, you can bead in your lap. And this allows you to sit in front of the TV and make things.

This also means that you don’t have to give up your creativity to be with your family or vice versa. You just can’t say that about every creative activity!

In fact, if you have kids and you sit down to bead in front of the TV, they’ll probably want to join you, and wouldn’t that be nice?

No Fuss No Muss

3.) Beading isn’t messy. It doesn’t involve glue or water and it doesn’t ruin your manicure. (Okay, it isn’t great for your manicure, but it isn’t the worst offender by far!). This also goes back to being able to sit in front of the TV-your hands are dry, there is nothing to spill and when the phone rings, you can answer it.

Custom Gift-Giving

What’s the fourth reason? Once you get your tools and a some beads, you can make very affordable, custom gifts for your friends and relatives in short order–so if you suddenly remember your best friend’s birthday is today, you can whip up a pair of earrings in no time flat, and give her a gift in her favorite color and style. This will¬† make her feel special and you can continue to be the disorganized, fly-by-the-seat-of-your-pants person you always were. (Phew, because I’m too old to change now!)

Teenage Daughters

See #4. No seriously. If you get your teenage daughter beading, you can control the kind of crazy spending on gift giving that can happen once a girl hits the seventh grade and all her friends matter more to her than you (not really, it just seems that way). She can make all her friends a pair of earrings for birthdays and the holidays at a fraction of the cost of what it take to buy them. Once she starts beading, the two of you can rip ideas out of catalogs, newspapers, and magazines for inspiration. (In Style always talks about what the stars are wearing…) With just a few beading skills, anyone can create quite a range of earrings, necklaces and bracelets.

It’s Fun!

And, I almost forgot, beading is fun and easy and anyone can do it. (Okay, 6 reasons.) Beads are beautiful, collectible, and a great obsession. And almost all women love jewelry, and when people¬† say, “I love your earrings”, you’ll say,” Oh, thanks! I made them myself.”
