No matter what type of beading, stitching or bead work you are doing, you will need a few basic supplies. Here is an overview of some of the things you need to get started or to keep at it if you are interested in beading:
As you probably know, beads can roll across surfaces and end up in every nook and cranny in your house. Bead supply stores sell little plastic trays that you can use to put your beads in while you are working. This will help you stay organized and make sure you have everything you need in your working space without having to hunt for the type of bead you need while you are working.
You will need a variety of wires for your craft project. Soft Flex offers everything from 18 gauge craft wire up to 29 gauge craft wire. Rounded wires are the most commonly used type of wire for beading.
Do not let your beads and findings roll away - use our Soft Flex Bead Mats. Our double-sided Soft Flex Bead Mats are made with a durable foam material. They are wrinkle free and washable. They cushion your hands while stringing beads and keep small items from rolling away. Each package contains three 11 x 14 mats in off-white, gray, and beige.
Bent Nose Pliers
These bent nose pliers are affordable and comfortable. Bent nose pliers are great for bending, creating perfect 90-degree angles, gripping and shaping wire. The bent nose pliers make it easier to see your wire while you are working on it. They are a must for all wire workers. These pliers are high-quality tools for a great low price.
Special T glue
Special T Glue is a gap filling glue. It is designed to fill any gaps inside a knot - this makes the knot secure and less likely to come undone. In the case of knotted jewelry, it is extra assurance that your design is not going to fall apart after prolonged wear.
Replacement Tips for the nylon hammer. Each tip has a 7/8 inch face.
