Learning to make jewelry in the Wall Street Journal

on Thursday, October 24, 2013

Isn't it grand when you run into a fellow beader in an unexpected place? I had that same feeling of delight when I recently saw an article about jewelry making in The Wall Street Journal (October 9). Actually, my delight was tempered by concern when I saw the article was featured in the "Cranky Consumer" column. But never fear -- the author was far from cranky! Instead, she related her experiences learning to make jewelry through four venues.

The first was an in-person class at Michaels, the second was a PDF tutorial and kit purchased online, the third a video class from Craftsy, and the fourth (here comes the delight again!) was a video class from our friends at Beaducation.com. Each method of learning to make jewelry had its advantages and drawbacks, but the author still successfully made four bracelets, which were showcased in the article.

We know that most of you learn beading by reading Bead&Button, but have you tried any of these other media? Besides magazines, what is your favorite way to learn a new technique? PS: If one of your answers is videos, have you seen the videos we have here at www.BeadAndButton.com?
