Beadwork was a part of the earliest known cultures, and is a craft with a rich and varied history. While our main focus at Auntie's Beads is on jewelry making, designers and crafters are finding more and more uses for beads, and mixed media is a hot new trend. Fashionable jewelry has always made generous use of glass beads and semi-precious beads. Seed beads are gaining in popularity for their versatility in weaving and loom projects, as well as standard bead stringing applications.

So let's say you want to learn how to make jewelry. Let's start with the components you will need. Aside from the beads themselves, it really doesn't take much to get started with the basic supplies, tools, and materials you'll need to start beading. You can get everything you need right here at Auntie's Beads. Our plethora of free beading projects will always list for you the materials and supplies needed, help you with quantities, and even link you right to the product pages where you can purchase them. Weaving projects will, of course, require thread, while stringing projects typically use wire that's specially designed for beading such as Beadalon wire. Other wires such as Artistic Wire are used for making wire-wrapped rings and bracelets, and even crocheting.

Our customers tell us over and over that the best way to learn how to bead is to watch and learn from an experienced beader. But what if you don't know anyone or have anyone handy who beads? We've solved this problem with free online beading videos. We were the first to do it, and we still have the most watched beading channel on YouTube. Our lead designer Karla Shafer gets rave reviews for her patient, clear teaching style. Learn the basics, or learn a new beading technique -- check out our top-rated Auntie's Beads YouTube Video Channel now!

Hi, I'm Susie Henderson, founder and co-owner of Auntie's Beads, Inc. We are a family-run business that has been online since October 2000. We are bead designers first and foremost and most of our key designers have been with us right from the beginning.
