Q&A with BeadedJewelry

Maria Hdz asked:
is wonderful :D any tips :)
BeadedJewelry answered:
I think the best tip is to use the patterns as a base, but then...follow where the beads lead you! What I usually do when I see a new pattern is try it first like the directions show, and then I do it again letting the beads take the lead (so to speak). Bead embroidery is not only pretty, but it's a lot of fun experimenting with different colors, different edgings and (of course) fringing. So relax and have fun with the process. :)
Judith Miller asked:
How much would it cost to buy these bead embroidery components?
BeadedJewelry answered:
Hi, and thanks for the question! To buy the components themselves, or the supplies to make them? Making them doesn't take much, depending on the kind of cabochon you use. Many of the ones in the tutorial have cabs that are around $1 (although the dichroic glass is more expensive). Hope this helps!
