who were u taught by to bead?

i was wondering if you were taught to bead by a family member, a friend or if u self-taught urselves. the different styles of beading and everything. i am learning and i really don't have anyone to show me, i try reading the lessons on line, but it's kind of confusing for me, i have to see what is happening, and what u loop, and how u knot, and how much wax is applied, etc.

My answer would have to be all 3. And I'm still learning. There are several good videos in the powwow.com shop. And you can always ask questions here!!!!!

the other day a friend was explaining something about crossing the beads with the thread or something like that but i couldn't get it. somewhere i read that you get a bead, and leave about 6 inches for a tail, and you wrap it around with the thread again, and then you sew it through the fabric, and you go back to the front, and pick up a bead, but u leave the first one unsewed onto the fabric, i'm not sure how to explain it, but the point is that i didn't understand really, i'm one of those that i need to watch, and i will get a video to learn. and i have also read the threads on the beadwork forum, and i have picked up on some stuff but it would be more useful to have the materials to read and follow the steps as i go along. now, a loom is a contraption that some bead works are done on?

Hey everybody,

This is the first time I've posted here. Actually I think I may've been a member a long time ago, but I don't even remember what screen name I used. I've just been looking around in here not entirely sure where to jump in, this thread looked like a good place to tell some embarassing stories about myself.

Nobody taught me how to bead, and it surely shows. I used to just loom bead stuff, I never made any patterns or anything before I started, I would just start, the only problem was I never knew what to do with them since that's about all I knew how to do. Some of them I would just keep beading and beading until it got really long, and again, didn't really have any idea what I was doing it for.

Then I ran out of the right kind of thread, so I foolishly tried a different kind that was way too thick, I made it through half of one of these, whatever they were supposed to be for, pieces and the thread got stuck, really stuck.

I pulled and pulled with all my might and it exploded, I mean EXPLODED, those little beads were moving so fast I swear there must still be some embedded in my skin, imagine that, seed bead shrapnel. Then just to give you an idea how boring my life was at the time and how destitute I was, and how much I wanted to continue making these odd beading things....

...I didn't have any money to buy more supplies so I took a pair of tweezers and started picking up every bead I could find out of my carpet in my room, yes that's right, I went completely insane.

Good night everybody!

My Grandmother (the one that recently passed) and my aunt Alecia got me started and taught me about a 1/4 of what i know, and the rest was self taught or shown by others. Well a good 50% is self taught I would have to say. I jsut understand beading manuals well I guess, and I can pick something up and learn how they did it by looking at it.

My mom bought us kids a loom, left us with instructions to go have fun. I can't remember if she had to "thread" it up for us or not. Anyway just learned by doing.
One book thats easy is called "Beading Techniques"by Jane Davis. It has step by step instructions to most of the beading stitches, 'cept gourd. The pictures are easy to follow an in the back are all types of graph paper so you can do your own patterns.
I'm still learning, read Bead and Button magazine, mostly for inspiration...LOL!
Hey!!?? Is wampum stitch the same as square-stitch?
Just wondering...

Grandma, Sister and then I've learned some new stuff on my own. But the majority from my family members. My sisters and I were "banned" from beading when we were younger as we thought it was more fun and exciting to throw the beads in the air and let them drop into the carpet. Then we would see how many beads we could find. We were young. :D

that one story picking up the beads with tweezers from the carpet really made me laugh out loud everyone at my house was wondering if i was having a naughty internet chat, or what??? :37: hahaha, that was so funny, i'll probably be sleeping and remember that and start laughing. well thank you all so much for the suggested liturature, i will read them, and keep u guys up to date as to how it's going. oh, btw, i live in the city, i was wondering if i could buy beading supplies like at michaels', a craft store, or would u suggest from the internet like auntiebeadies, something like that, i can't quite remember, i get instant amnesia, you have to forgive me for that. :Thinking

Just starting out if you are doing small projects getting beads from Michaels might be ok, easy to run down the street if you run out of something. But I wouldn't use beads from anyplace like that for very long. I order my beads from lots of different places depending on the quality of the beads I get from supplier, availability, and cost. I get beads from places like www.shipwreckbeads.com
www.nocbay.com
buffalo chips which doesn't have a website
and www.crazycrow.com

oh yeah, i recall a member by the name of Big Cheeks recommending nocbay, and crazy crow to me, also for material to make moc's from. but just for starters i want to start out with like really basic colors, nothing fancy, like when a beginner artist makes their first drawing or painting they don't use their best paint, and brushes and canvases, just for practice i meant. but when i start to bead accessories, and anything i wish, then i think it would be appropriate to use the best beads and materials. oooooh, i can't wait. :Blush oh, question, what type of beading do u think would be easier to start out with?

yeah, i'm like that too, i want to sit with someone so that i can be taught. i learn by watching actually. i am still on the mission of going out to michaels and getting just something to practice on. would it be better to start off with a pattern? the other day i went to Walgreens and i saw a x-mas beaded pouch and i wanted to buy it, and take it apart carefully to see how it was beaded, but i didn't.

My mom taught me how to bead a small round earring using 13 cuts when I was 7 years old. Soon after she taught me other things such as loom beading, peyote stitch, and lazy stitch. However, being a typical 7 year old, i wanted to play and do other stuff with other kids my age, so beading was put on the backburner. Also at that time, I took a hiatus from dancing from age 8-11 years old.

By the time I reached 12 years old, I wanted to start dancing again. However, with all the beadwork I had before, I had outgrown them. My mom was the one who used to make all my beadwork, but she was busy working, and didn't have time for beading. So, that's when I religiously started beading again.

I'm 26 now, and have stopped dancing for a time being again. But I still continue to make beaded outfits for my niece. I don't have any kids of my own yet, so what better way to spoil my niece. :)

that's neat. the other day i met a who's tribe is from louisianna, i can't remember the name of his tribe though. and i was asking him about beading, and he said that only his sisters are into that, and i mentioned peyote beading to him and he said, "peyote? what about it?" he's like in his late 50's, he said he and some other man were the oldest from the tribe. lol so i had to explain to him it was a form of beading. and he said, "oh, well my sisters know all about that stuff" i hope that he can introduce me to his sisters to have mentors. i live in the city and there aren't any ndn's in my neighborhood except for a 14 year old around the corner. but he's not into the culture.

Thanks for the reply !! A friend just dubbed it hand-looming for lack of any other name...
Back in the day when I'd just begun beadin...got one of those fancy compartment boxes....an one fine evening as I was puttin colors together for a pair of earrings...you guessed it!
One clutzy cat jumped onto the table an flipped the whole thing !! We have wooden floors so the pinging of beads went on for awhile....
Took me two days to round all of them up an another year to finally sort them back out.
Still have beads in the heating duct...somewhere between here an the basement.
My secret "bank account" !! LOL !!

My grandpa's sister taught me lane stitch, to help me learn to sit still and concentrate. She thought I need one thing I could do as well as other kids -- with my learning disablity that sure wasn't school, at least until I was nearly grown, LOL. I learned other styles by watching folks work and studying stuff and powwows and museums .

Personally, I have found few books or sites make any sense if you are totally unfamilar with beadwork techniques. Some of the videos I have seen out there are pretty good. I want to add, quality materials are very important. Frequently the bulk beads in craft stores are the leftovers after culling the first quality beads or are odd sizes. Uneven beads give uneven work, especially when you are first starting and don't know all the little tricks to fix problems.

Good luck to you. You are taking your place in a long chain of craftswomen and artists.

Regards,
OLChemist
