Hi! I too would like to do bead work. Mostly jewelry. I have not taken any classes just trial and error, unfortunately more error than anything. I have many $$$ in supplies, but when I tried last to do some toe rings I had some trouble with my eye sight, couldn't see the holes in the beads. I will need to get me a magnifying light, before I try again. I also would like to do the wire and beads things, I can't find much infor on it though. Any suggestions?
