    well mine's all raised beadwork and bead embroidery because I am tuscarora. For myself I am a "less is more" kinda person but totally appreciate the heavily beaded stuff as well! Good luck with your beadwork and please show us when you're done. I've been beading since I was little younger than you (nothing too complicated though till later). I'm sure you'll do a fine job and if you do better than fine and post it so we can see it, we'll definitely let you know LOL!!

        Hey, I think it's AWESOME that your doing your own beadwork at 11 years old. That's about how old I was too when I started to bead stuff...only mine wasn't good enough to wear in public. LOL!

        How much beadwork you wear I guess depends on what style and tribe you are. Most jinglers I know wear fully beaded leggings, mocs, hairties, choker, earrings, headband, barrettes, and some even have bracelets, ring, and vest. My fancy outfit includes fully beaded yoke, leggings, shoes, belt, hairties, choker w/drop, earrings, headband, and barrettes. My tradish outfits (southern style) include a fully beaded crown, hairties, choker w/drop, earrings, barrettes, bracelets, ring, belt drop, back drop.

        Tell me about your beret...I'm a southern gal and not familiar with that term.

            It's great your working on your own regalia. Just to let you know; you don't have to have a great amount of beadwork, I've seen some really pretty regalia, that was mostly made of fabrics. There are some very talented seamtresses out there; be patient you'll find that your outfit is never really complete or done.

                I’ve been beading since I was five,
                I bead everyday - makes me feel alive.

                It’s great and I’m happy you’re starting to bead,
                having beadwork on clothes is what we all need.

                Do some each day or at least stay with it,
                you’ll be happy you did beading bit by bit.

                I was taught to do this a long time ago,
                now I enter the circle beaded head to toe.

                If you stick with it and just bead row by row,
                in no time at all everyone will be saying WAY TO GO!!

                                One of my friends has decided she wants new beadwork and wants me to do it. I have always done my own beadwork but I dance traditional and only wear my hair ties, back barrette, two small barrettes and a bone choker (not beaded with a drop). I am perfectly capable of doing the beadwork but I'm just...

                                So when you bead what is all in your set of beadwork!? I kinda forgot what is all in set.

                                When I bead a set I bead a choker with drop, hairties, over the top headband, ring, side barretts, top hairtie barretts, and some extra barretts. I have one pair of beaded mocassins. I've...

I already have all my beads for my new outfit but between work, school, and taking care of my son I can't find the time.(Or maybe its just cuz...
