A Word From the Author:
"It is helpful to find your beads first and then determine the technique you will use to pull the design together. Use your imagination and sketch out how you would like the beads to be arranged. You might even invent a new technique, depending on what you are trying to bring to life. There is no right or wrong in this process—just have fun! If you can’t wrap your mind around this concept right away, but still feel the need to break out of a beading rut, take a look at chapter four for some alternate methods of finding inspiration. Using other craft materials in your jewelry projects, such as appliques, buttons or ribbon, is a great way to get started. Sometimes you just need to take that first step from the ordinary to let your creativity take over" — Lisa Crone

- Beading Needles come in a variety of lengths and diameters. I like to use the smallest diameter and longest length. These needles typically bend easily for maneuvering in and out of small beads.
- Memory Wire Cutters are specifically for memory wire because of its heavy gauge. Other cutting tools can be used, but will often damage the cutting surface.
- Wire Cutters come in a variety of sizes and strengths, but for most jobs, a standard 4½" wire cutter or nipper will do.
- Flush Cutters allow you to cut down to the point of the cutter so you can get into small spaces. They are great for cutting the beading wire tail after the final crimp has been made.
- Round-Nose Pliers are used for making rounded loops in wire.
- Needle-Nose Pliers are great for flattening crimps in tight spaces.
- Crimping Pliers have two grooves for making the two-step round or folded crimp.
