    How long did it take you to finish your beadwork?

  • #2
    A long........ long...... time. I'm still working on it. It's taking me like two years now.

    But of course, I got college, 6 kids and a household to run as well. I'm hoping to get it all done for this powwow season.

      I started two sets in Nov (It's May) and I finished one in March, almost done with the second one - and I work full time with the Army, and have two part time jobs and a daughter. I bead at night til about 11:00 sometimes later if I have a deadline - oh yeah, I made 4 dresses and did a choker order during that time too.

        Let's see I started my new set in March......did the back barrette, choker, earrings, hairties, smaller beaded side barrette, beaded rings, starting the leggings. Trying to get them done by the end of June for the start of my pw season. As for my belt, I get that made by someone else. I can't wait to wear my new outfit. :rainbw: Oh yeah! And also beaded a matching purse. I gotta get the leggings done soon but not looking forward to means beading nonstop for the next few weeks.:Mad

              Quick question here for experienced beaders,

              by bdn_ndn_grl
              I just got a job for a fully beaded men's traditional vest. He wants the full front and half the back beaded but I don't know what to charge. A lot of people tell me that I charge to little for my stuff so I thought I would get some ideas on pricing... one person said $700 while another said $2000...what...

              by uw_n8iv
              How long have you sat in one place and worked on a project? Are you a Marathon Beader (eat, sleep, & bead) OR Are you a fun-run Beader (takes u 3 months to finish an earing)
